Ungdomskulen blend hard-charging rock with dance beats and a twist of prog rock to produce songs that have both an experimental edge and frenetic intensity.

Bergen, Norway’s Ungdomskulen blend hard-charging rock with dance beats and a twist of prog rock to produce songs that have both an experimental edge and frenetic intensity. That will be on full display when the band’s new album, Secrecy Out, releases on September 25th. The album opener “Askefast” has already hit the web and we offer the video/MP3 below. Meanwhile, today we are premiering a second track from the new record, “Facemask”. This tune begins all gentle and relaxed with a quiet voice and acoustic guitar before exploding into propulsive grooves of bass and drums with slashing guitar riffs propelling the music forward. It’s addicting stuff.

Norway's Ungdomskulen has an instinct for genre bending, breaking, and making. Leave your inhibitions at the door and jump into the breathing guitar lines and unstoppable drums.
