Norway’s Chris Wicked is releasing a brand-new single, entitled Aleine on friday. The song, which features Gaahl (Gaahls Wyrd) on guest vocals and V’gandr (Taake, Helheim) on bass, is the title track of the upcoming debut album scheduled to drop early next year through Apollon Records.
Aleine which means Alone is a catchy dark rock song where you’ll hear Gaahls haunting vocals underneath Chris’ melodic voice.
Chris Wicked is best known for his work with Malice in Wonderland, where he released several albums, EP’s and singles and toured the world. Now, Chris Wicked is reinventing himself, composing dark atmospheric, yet melodic songs and singing in his own language. Together with guitarist Rune Nordahl-Pedersen, bassist Eskil Sæter and drummer Marius Mathisen, Chris Wicked is now ready to release brand new music. Helping on the recordings the band invites friends, like Gaahl (Gaahls Wyrd), Hoest (Taake, Gorgoroth), Niklas Kvarforth (Shining) and V’gandr (Helheim) to collaborate, and the sound is quite stunning.
