Prepared piano, doublebass and drums are the basics. Still the instrumental array may shift from song to song, including many homemade devices suggestive of the avant-garde. But we are thoroughgoing populists, warmly regarding our beautiful audiences and embracing our role as entertainers. We love music. We hate music: Music against Music.

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”
Ask yourselves this : Could Cloroform really be the best band in the world?
