What do you do when you're told that you're going to die? Arabrot Official's Kjetil Nernes went on tour and into the studio. Music helped him through his illness, and out of it came The Gospel, released in February and named the year’s best album by The Quietus. This documentary follows him through two years of struggle and success.
Årabrot is a two-headed monster. The band has toured Norway, Europe and the States extensively for years. They have released 7 critically acclaimed albums and won Norwegian Grammy for Best Metal 2012. The most recent full-length The Gospel was voted Album Of The Year 2016 by influential music site The Quietus. Årabrot the rockband is without a doubt a well-known and established name, but another important component of the band – the arty and more experimental Årabrot Speciale – often goes unrecognized.
Årabrot Speciale is Årabrot outside of the conventional structures of a basic rock’n’roll-band. Årabrot Speciale is the elemental force. Dark and hypnotizing. Atmospheric. It could be the soundtrack to a perfect suicide. Crushing, ugly, but at the same time majestic and surprisingly beautiful. The Årabrot Speciale main core consists of Årabrot frontman Kjetil Nernes on vocals, guitars and electronics and pop artist Karin Park on vocals, flute and synths. This 100 Club performance in London features Andrew Liles and spoken word from John Doran.
