MARATON

 

UNCOMPROMISING AND GROOVY WITH HOOK`S THAT WILL MAKE YOU SING ALONG AFTER THE FIRST LISTEN!

 

 

MARATON pushes the boundaries between pop music and progressive rock, mixing machine like drums and roaring bass groundwork with shimmering guitars, ethereal keys and sacral vocal performance. The band has sought to create a style of music which combines the rhythmic heaviness from bands such as Mars Volta with the pop aesthetics of Muse. MARATON are: Frank Røe | Fredrik Bergersen Klemp | Vegard Liverød
Jon Vegard Næss | Magnus Johansen  

During the recordings of "META"  Fredrik worked hard making melodies and lyrics for each song. Simen has always been a fantastic songwriter, and the collaboration between him and Fredrik would blossom under the creation of the album. The theme on the album is mainly human mentality; individual and personal reflections of this crazy world. One can say that the theme is psychology.

At Øyvind Voldmo’s studio Lion Heart in Oslo, they recorded all vocals and harmonies in one week. Fredrik and Simen spent a lot of time to get the right "nerve" to each song. Next up was mixing, which was done at Ocean Sound Recording in Giske, Norway, with the brilliant Henning Svoren. Here they fulfilled Maraton’s vision for "META"’s distinguished sound. Mastering was done later by the magician Stamos Koliousis.
