"Koldbrann was formed by Mannevond in early 2001, with the intention of making a cold and ugly Black Metal assault, without any trendy and faggoth elements! A while later guitarist Dragev joined, and at the end of the year everything was set for a demo but Dragev chose to leave. A short while after Kvass came in as a replacement and the band startet rehearsing, without a drummer, but luckily they soon came in contact with Fordervelse who joined and took the band to a whole new level!
In July 2002 Koldbrann recordead their first demo 'Pre-Prod 2002' in their own 'studio' NekroTrygd, with Kj°ttring contributing on bass. As the title indicates this was meant as sort of a pre-production for an upcoming demo, containing only two songs. Anyway it was released as a demo CD ( printed in 500 copies, not available anymore! )
The demo was spread very well in the Norwegian underground as well as abroad, and it recieved almost nothing but great response and reviews! This led to Koldbrann signing a deal with Scottish underground label Desolate Landscapes ( for a full-length CD release ), and later on with Norwegian Apocalyptic Empire Records ( for a 7 inch EP ). In the meantime Jonas aus Slavia had joined on session-bass and Koldbrann did its first live show at the Legions of the North festival, with other great Norwegian underground acts like Endsum, Grenjar, and Vidsyn. A few weeks later they played at the Pandemonium Metal Club #12 in Oslo, again with Endsum, as support for Madder Mortem.
In December '02 the rehearsal tape 'Mislyder fra Det Nekrotiske Kammer' was released ( printed in very few copies, not available! ), as a preview for the upcoming CD. And in January they played at Garage in Bergen at Atterljom Metal Club's first arrangement.
'Nekrotisk Inkvisition' was recordead in February and mixed & mastered in March 2003. The debut CD is supposed to be out in April. In March Jonas aus Slavia ( Hail! ) decided to quit.. General Kshatriya ( Disiplin, ex. Myrkskog + + ) and Mpress ( Zeenon ) joined short after as livemembers on (2nd)guitar and bass. In April Koldbrann will play at the Inferno Festival and in Trondheim! For more info see here. The 7" EP on Apocalyptic Empire Records will be recordead during the spring and hopefully be released during the summer.
Await the Nekrotic Inquisition!!"
