So Much For Nothing

The birth of So Much For Nothing dates back to 2007 when Unsgaard wrote some songs, even though the project's name wasn't decided until 2010. However, an album was recorded 2009-2010 with help from drummer Uruz. He later decided to join the solo project as a permanent drummer, and now made it a duo.

So Much For Nothing's debut came in form of a 7" split with Angst Skvadron in 2011 and was followed up with their debut album Livsgnist in January 2012. The album was highly acclaimed by the press, much because of it's originality, blending so called black metal with more pop orientated song structures in a rock influenced manner. Instruments as saxophone, trumpet, cello and violin were provided by several guest musicians and also made an impact on Livsgnist's original sound.

Psychostick

Most high school friends lose contact and drift apart when they graduate from high school. But what would happen if two crazy friends who loved metal went on to create a metal band? Not just any metal band, but a metal band infused with comedy?

The 'stick!

The result is Psychostick: a comedic metal (self-proclaimed "humorcore") band with a reputation for having hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics, and a high energy performance. The music successfully crosses a level of heaviness and aggression found in bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed with the wit and humor of The Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al Yankovic.
