EARTH ELECTRIC, the hard rock brainchild of Norwegian guitarist Rune Eriksen (ex-MAYHEM, AURA NOIR, TWILIGHT OF THE GODS, ex-AVA INFERI) are streaming another new track off their forthcoming album, ‘Vol. 1: Solar’. The track, a symphonic hard rock opus titled “The Endless Road” is streaming now, here.
Regarding the new track, EARTH ELECTRIC comments:
“We have chosen ‘The Endless Road’ as the third and final single from ‘Vol.1 Solar’. This one used to be called ‘Burn’ when it was in my Cubase folder – most likely due to the umpteen amount of times I’ve traveled abroad with that glorious Deep Purple album on my headphones. Somehow something must have slipped in; however, I digress. For me, this song represents something alluring and charming yet indefinitely old, something untamed and wild, something that transcribes perfectly into our unique take on hard rock. Carmen’s interest in Gypsy magic and aesthetics is massively present in the lyrics and the hypnotic melodies move forward in a carefree and sort of ‘unattached’ way assisting the music. To be honest, what is a rock band without having a song dedicated to these mysterious traveling people?”
‘Vol. 1: Solar’, sees the renowned musician joined by front-woman Carmen Simoes (ex-AVA INFERI, ex-MOONSPELL), and marks a return to his roots by exploring a more progressive sound firmly based on rock music. Recorded in Orgone Studio with acclaimed producer Jaime Gomez Arellano (GHOST, CATHEDRAL, PARADISE LOST, PRIMORDIAL), ‘ Vol. 1: Solar’ will be released via Season of Mist worldwide on May 12.
‘ Vol. 1: Solar’ is available for pre-order across multiple CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

EARTH ELECTRIC was founded with a common desire and drive to unchain energetic rock. The band have enlisted the talents of bassist Alexandre Ribeiro (GROG, NEOPLASMAH) and Ricardo Martins on drums (JIBÓIA); both highly respected artists from the Portuguese metal and rock scene. The band also recruited the Londoner Dan Knight from the progressive UK rock band MESSENGER on keys to complete their recording line-up.
