Trinacria was originally a composition by Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) and Maja S. K. Ratkje and Hils Sofie Tafjord (both from Fe-mail) commissioned by Rikskonsertene for a concert series. The line-up was completed by Grutle Kjellson, Ice Dale (both from Enslaved), Iver Sandøy (Emmerhoff) and Espen Lien.
After working together briefly, the composition turned into a vital project which, after touring, became a fully welded band. The result outdoes the sum of the parts by far – Trinacria represents something unique on the music scene as a whole.
Trinacria is an abstraction in both aspects; musically and conceptually. It is an approximation towards something indefinable along the lines of “dark”, “occult” and perhaps “beauty & chaos”. It is as pretentious/ unpretentious as you want it to be - love it or hate it; very few end up in between.
