The marathon is the result of four young men with a desire to create something that most Norwegian bands do not dare. Energetic and catchy, but also demanding in its uncompromisingness.
Dazzling guitars and roaring drums destroy everything in its path while the cautious build song builds it all up again.
🔥📣 BAND SPOTLIGHT
Norwegian Music - over the last 30 years their main sonic export seems to have shifted gradually from Trve Kvlt Black Metal towards some of the most exciting modern prog metal. Oslo-based @maratonband definitely fall under the latter category as well.
Described as “shamelessly melodic”, Maraton pushes the boundaries and mixes styles of prog, rock and pop into an utterly mesmerising sound of their own. With more than 1 million streams across all platforms, “Meta” is Norway’s most-streamed prog debut and the only Norwegian act to perform at Roskilde Festival with only 1 single previously released! The band has shared the stage with @enslavedofficial , @mandodiaomusic , @officialcircusmaximus and earlier this year joined @leprousofficial for an extensive European tour.
The two latest stand-alone singles ‘Fringe Logic’ and ‘Almost Human’ expanded upon the sound they established on “Meta” and left us craving for more, so their sophomore album can’t come soon enough!
Don’t miss Maraton co-headlining The Progspace Online Festival on Friday, 23 October!
