CLASSIC ROCK BROUGHT TO LIFE
«Made In Spite EP» is Rebolt’s first official release. It includes four original hard hitting rock tunes in the rock/metal vein.
Despite their mixed backgrounds, the members of the Norwegian band came together for one single reason: The love for old fashioned heavy metal and hard rock! The songs featured on their debut EP is a humble batch of rock’n’roll which has got both soul and playfulness written all over it. In short, it is an honest attempt to make the audience dig up their air guitars and put their pedals to the metal (although rather not at the same time!).
It was the guitar riffs and solos, the big choruses and the unpretentious joy of bands such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and Iron Maiden which lead to the foundation of Rebolt during the winter of 2004. The band had previously recorded two four-track demos under the ad-hoc name of Powerage back in 2004 and 2005. Although they were both crammed with impressive tunes, the sound quality of these early recordings left much to be desired.
This time around there were much more studio time at hand, a fact which without doubt reveals itself on the refined finished product. The guitar sounds better than ever, the drums are solid and powerful, the bass is dense and rocksteady and the shining vocals are as dynamic and energetic as they are on stage. The sum of it all is a cliché, but still spot on: this is hard hitting as hell!
Rebolts energetic and charismatic singer Frode is in the centre of the stage, claiming the attention of the audience right from the first note to the final riff. This is a rock singer who can smile and look people in the eye all at once, and still sing as if his lungs were bleeding. This get-up-and-go attitude both on record and on stage has lead to support jobs for internationally recognized Norwegian bands such as Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren Band and Span among others.
Rebolt was founded on the basic idea that it was possible to be serious about music without trying to «save» rock by attempting to be knights in shining armour. The musical background of the four members would usually imply that they were poles apart, but their diverse individual credentials from jazz, rock and funk among other genres, have in fact proved to be their greatest strength. Other encouraging acts include Rose Tattoo, The Cult, AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Danzig.
During the two years which has gone since Rebolt’s formation, the quartet has managed to earn a small but devoted international fan base as well as a name for themselves on the local live circuit in Norway. The reasons for their achievements are as simple as the ideas that were evident when they first met: To play extremely tight rock’n’roll and engage their audience while bringing their joy of music to a full view.
Bring your air guitar out of the closet and enjoy, dude.
"...there´s no doubt that Rebolt kicks some serious a**...keep it up guys, and we´ll be really looking forward to an album."

"...Rebolt are doing their thing with a rough and rockin´attitude that sounds tough and cheeky! Rock is the cue, it´s all about a fresh and uptempo thing that´s not very far from what Bruce Dickinson use to do on the classic Samson albums...To sum up, this is all about a very american-sounding stadium rock, with a professional completion. The product is in many ways a little bit different than other norwegian bands, not that many explores this musical landscape."

"Rebolt plays riff-heated hard rock and have really got the fuse lit with Made in Spite."

"...really fun and a wonderful break from pretentious singer/songwriters, inward-looking indie bands and the somewhat used up new-new wave-genre that breeds one second-rate band after the other. I can´t help it, but I really do like these guys. Maybe it´s because their music gives me a constant smile on my face? But do yourself a favor, play it loud!"

"The hard rock band Powerage has changed name to Rebolt and keeps it up in an even more rockin´and classic direction. This four-track demo delivers classic hard rock of the heavier stuff, influenced by bands like AC/DC and The Cult. And it doesn´t sound that bad. The songs are, within the genre, good, and there´s a real drive over the material. The band offers a really good singer in Frode Jørum and there´s quite a bit of nice riffing and solo´s going on. If you like your eighties hard rock with balls, this is worth checking out. More info on https://www.tradebit.com"
