This is Emanuel Desperados
-Fulfill my twisted needs and desires-
It all started in early 2009. Guitarist, Marius Lunde, had just moved back home to Porsgrunn after living in Oslo for a few years.
At the time Kristoffer Widerberg was lead singer in a band named Baader Meinhof. They had both played in several bands before, together and separately, but the heart was never really in the right place. It was time to start something new, something explosive, something fresh, something which later on would be known as: Emanuel Desperados.
Terje Fjellstad was a former work colleague of Marius and had played in several bands before, but was not part of any band at the time.
When approached, he quickly said yes to playing bass. He also brought in a guitarist named Paul Erik Overman. Around the same time, Stian Tollefsen played drums in a metal band named Groundless and was hesitant when asked to play drums. He agreed to join some sessions. They soon discovered that they worked well together and that the music they created was awesome.
Only a few months after their first rehearsal in 2009, they opened for Valentourettes at Rockeklubben i Porsgrunn.
They continued making music and playing gigs at smaller venues. In 2010 Paul Erik left the band due to personal reasons.
Soon after this, the band recorded their first album witch later on would be released. When the process of recording the album was complete, Ole Jørgen Kjørholt replaced Paul Erik on guitar and stayed with the band until 2012. The band decided to not bring in another member to replace Ole Jørgen. And so, the four original members was left.
In june 2013 "Hail The Daemon" was released on 10" green vinyl. The album contains five tracks: "Parasite", "Hail The Daemon",
"Grave Addiction", "Gloryhole" and "Cougar". 250 numbered copies was printed and financed by the band themselves.
The motive on the cover is drawn by bass player Terje, and handprinted by the band. Soon after the release of "Hail The Daemon",
it was played on national radio. It has also gotten good reviews in magazines and webzines.
2013 has been a good year for Emanuel Desperados. With the first album released, good reviews and several gigs with bands such as:
Truckfighters, Audrey Horne, Black Debbath and Skogen Brinner, the future is looking bright.
