Gjennom 22 år har Cloroform vært et overflødighetshorn av progressiv, kontroversiell og utfordrende musikk som ikke lar seg fange av sjangertermenologien.

Anført av John Erik Kaada på clavinetter og dupeditter, sammen med produsent og stjernetrommis Børge Fjordheim og fri impro-bassisten Øyvind Storesund, er Cloroform anno 2020 like brennheite som de var ved debuten i 1998.

Cloroform er et musikalsk fristed for de tre musikerne. Et fristed hvor de graver dypere og dypere ned i bandets egenart. Gjennom anslagsvis 500 konserter og 8 utgivelser har bandet pushet egne musikalske grenser.

På deres siste innspillinger møter man Cloroforms særeste særegenheter. Gjennomført mer kompromissløst enn noen gang tidligere.

De har dykket dypere inn i den råskapen, energien og den fri improviserte grooven, som har gjort bandet til ett av Norges mest særegne band.

Musikken er produsert av Anders Hana og innspilt i Electrolüd 2020

Den nye musikken slippes i singelformat, med konsise og effektive låter, som ved veis ende fremstår som et større og sammenhengende verk.

As we are working on getting a new album together, we are also collecting photos and what not, to put on www.cloroform.com  The goal is that here you can view previously unseen footage, photographs and videos of numerous gigs, sessions and releases. Some of the stuff is pretty much what you’d expect, but there are also loads of photographs and artefacts from the band’s own personal collections.
 
You can also read reviews from Norway and abroad, engross yourself in the reproduction of a substantial number of magazine and newspaper articles and also listen to and view a great deal of audio and video footage, some of which is fairly familiar, but a lot of completely new and exclusive to this site. We’re also building a Discography section with details of every single Cloroform release embedded within this ever-growing section as well as the occasional unique perspective or story that may be assciated with it.
 
As you can appreciate, for a band who formed in 1997 and have been incredibly busy since, this is a LOT of stuff to collate and present. For this reason, we plan to do it in instalments and are pleased to present the first year and a half of Cloroform’s existence.

By tearing elements from every corner of the greatest music in the world, Cloroform has created a pretty special universe for themselves. An apocalyptic concoction of furious drums, damaging but sensitive bass lines, atom-splitting clavinet riffs and vocals that range from visceral growls to decibel-decimating screeches.

It’s unpredictable, split-second changes, blasts of two second-long drum-explotions, and lupine screams onto spazzed-out keyboards that sounds totally inhumane. The band is an intersection where deathmetal and barbiedolls…. run stop signs at 100 mph and explode into one and other!

Børge Fjordheim explains: “It’s unscripted, un-everything, It’s a walk into our perversed, hilarious, ridiculous, fire breathing, retarded, playfull and mindless lives. It’s a very candid, sincere perception of us”
