There are at least three artists who use the name Brocken Spectre 1) Brocken Spectre is the name of a Norwegian progressive rock/metal band. The four musicians Kristoffer Solheim, Thomas Øhrn Hartmann, Jørn Eliassen and Vetle Warland startet playing together in February 2011. They all went to the same music/rock school by the name Trøndertun that year. Because of current geographical distances, the band is currently put on hold. 2) Brocken Spectre is solo project of Lucio Duran. Lucio was a member of Blackcell and In Ether before doing solo work as Brocken Spectre. Growing up in the Denver electronic scene has given Duran a change to mingle with many Electro Industrial producers and DIY noise artists. This aesthetic as suck with him, creating all sound with his hardware collection of synthesizers, drum machines and samplers that is a cross of Dark Ambient atmosphere and dance floor friendly Electro. Signed to both Backwards Records and Chimera Central. 3) Deep in the suburbs of Vancouver, brothers Nic and Collin Campbell decided to clear out the space in their little spare room, and set up amps, mics, speakers, drums, and put up Coldplay and Jack Bauer posters on the walls. These leftovers from old highschool bands and side projects would become invaluable in what would eventually become Brocken Spectre. When they met singer and songwriter Colin Ablitt during college, a band was born. It was rough beginnings - the songs were awkward at times… all flesh and no bones, or all bones and no flesh. Nevertheless, that cramped spare room was a shoebox diorama for their lives and being. They felt the struggles and joys of one another as though they were each their own. Naturally, as they grew, growing pains were inevitable. As they wrote and re-wrote and rearranged and moved furniture, they clanged and beat against one another like the tongue of a bell hitting it's sides. Yet the process and clamor of hammering away eventually produced heartfelt, angular and driving indie-rock. In that little world they were simply figuring out what it means to be a band and write inspiring, innovative music. In three short months, Brocken Spectre played its first big show. What was a pond before then became a river. Now driven by the joyous and mysterious connection between listener and performer, the band is constantly evolving and tweaking and polishing to a shine. They are learning to speak in fire-words, burnishing their tongues and speaking sparks to spill out into the streets. They are bringing out a beautiful ruckus with all the gas in their lungs.
