Zeromancer

After the breakup of one of Norwegian's biggest rock acts of all time, Seigmen, four of the earlier members of Seigmen, Alex Møklebust (vocals), Erik Ljunggren (programming), Kim Ljung (bass) and Noralf Ronthi (drums), wanted to move on and develop a more industrial sound. Together with Chris Schleyer (guitar), they formed Zeromancer in 1999.

After the breakup of one of Norwegian's biggest rock acts of all time, Seigmen, four of the earlier members of Seigmen, Alex Møklebust (vocals), Erik Ljunggren (programming), Kim Ljung (bass) and Noralf Ronthi (drums), wanted to move on and develop a more industrial sound. Together with Chris Schleyer (guitar), they formed Zeromancer in 1999.

Seigmen was, at their peak, a phenomenal live band. They created music, atmospheres and live shows as no other Norwegian band had done before them. Seigmen was clearly inspired by bands like Tool, and as their sound progressed their influence from Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode was significant. Their last album, Radiowaves, was far more in the NIN and DM alley than the ones before. This was what changed Seigmen, which eventually led to the ending of a memorable time and the rise of Zeromancer.

Zeromancer started immideatly to travel worldwide unlike Seigmen, and was seeking a greater fanbase beyond the borders of Norway. Seigmen's lyrics were all Norwegian until Radiowaves, but their dream to succeed 'outside' led them to change the writing of lyrics into English, making a lot of fans furious. Zeromancer though, have gained a lot of fans in both USA and Germany.

The current Lineup is Alex Møklebust (vocals), Kim Ljung (bass guitar/backup vocals), Noralf Ronthi (drums) Lorry Kristiansen (programming) and Dan Heide (lead guitar). They have released six studio albums to date: Clone Your Lover (2000), Eurotrash (2001), Zzyzx (2003), Sinners International (2009), The Death of Romance (2010) and Bye-Bye Borderline (2013). « hide
