Artist Biography by

Arendal, Norway's industrial black metal band V:28 are a self-confessed "half-human, half-machine" enterprise comprised of vocalist/guitarist Eddie Risdal (also of Ancestral Legacy), guitarist/programmer Kristoffer Oustad, and bassist Atle Johansen. After years of mucking about (supposedly since as far back as 1996) with the prospect of recording something, the trio finally unleashed a pair of demos ("A Journey Through a World of Madness" and "Time Is Empty") in 2002, then called on drummer Børre Iversen to help them perform a few live dates in support of Enslaved and Red Harvest. However, they would revert to a trio format and the use of programmed drums for the creation of their albums NonAnthropogenic (2003) and Soulsaviour (...Providing a Bright Future) (2005) -- both released by independent Vendlus Records, and reportedly comprising the first two installments in a musical trilogy.
