A couple of months ago we contacted Jørgen Abrahamsen when we needed a step in lead guitarist to our latest music video Strife. He did the job very well. Actually so well that we did some more rehersals with him even after the video recording. We can now gladly announce that Jørgen is our new lead guitarist - and our first left handed member ever! A bit more info about Jørgen on his profile page.
Below is a video audition Jørgen did to the music video recording:

The Norwegian website "Norsk på Spotify" asked us to make a 20+5 list. What is a 20+5 list? It's a list of songs from our favorite Norwegian bands. And in that list we were invited to add 5 of our own songs as well. Below is our entire 20+5, and while you're at it, you can visit our profile at the "Norsk på Spotify" home page.
The list of songs is chosen by Rudi, Jørgen and Patrik. The songs are in random order, except for our own, which we tried to spread around the list.
We've got a lot of great reviews on our latest release, Outsold. Metal Magazines, metal websites and video reviewers have all thrown in some words. We have collected some of them for you. And we wish for more! Here are some quotes:
"TONIC BREED could easily advance up the ranks thanks to this impressive release.
"Even with "Outsold", the second studio album of their career, the Norwegians, Tonic Breed, hit the center of the target, working on a platter of eight tracks perfectly balanced between thrash metal and heavy eighties. 86/100"
"10/10. Album of the year 2014"
"This album is very different from anything I ever listened to before!! This band took all what’s great about the classic thrash metal bands and put all that into the work of an amazing album."
"Tonic Breed reinforces my growing belief that music, and particularly metal, can one day survive and even thrive without need of the corporate machine."
"One moment the band is grooving, the next moment chopping and pounding. Tonic Breed does all that. With a singer that sounds like a combination of Tom Araya and Mille, but who can sing something better."
" "Outsold" is a great album where all of the songs sound very different, yet somehow melt together to make a superb album full of varied vocals, catchy riffs, a lot of solos and awesome drumming."
"Even with "Outsold", the second studio album of their career, the Norwegians, Tonic Breed, hit the center of the target, working on a platter of eight tracks perfectly balanced between thrash metal and heavy eighties."
