Norwegian Horror Thrashers CRITICAL SOLUTION are back with a new album! “Barbara The Witch”, the band’s third full-length since their formation in 2005, is a concept album based on a true story from their hometown Helleland which took place in the 1600s. Recorded at Sonic Train Studios with producer Andy La Rocque at the helm, this is the most Horror filled album they have ever made, garnished with an amazing cover artwork by Mario Lopez. The story lines are narrated by "The God Of Hellfire" Arthur Brown, and the album will be released as a digipack including a bonus disc entitled "Covers From Hell".
Described by some as the child of King Diamond and Testament with influences from Alice Cooper and Arthur Brown, CRITICAL SOLUTION have toured Europe with bands like W.A.S.P, Marduk and Diamond Head, to name a few, and are known for their theatrical themed shows and impressive guest appearances on their albums.
