It’s not ever day that a drummer busts out a side project, so when they do, we should definitely take notice. And you’ll want to check out the solo project of Kai Johnny Mosaker, professionally known as Trym Torson for Emperor.
“New year, new opportunities. I have been a big movie fan my whole life, and a big fan of movie themes and soundtracks.
“For the past years, I have been busy with Emperor, but I also have been working on my first solo project. This will have nothing in common with what I have been doing before, but a complete new chapter in my musical journey.
“My passion for soundtracks and cinematic soundscapes is what my new project will be all about. The name will be Trymr but spelled in the old norse language (thrymr-lord among the giants). The first project will be themes about an old village being threatened by roving warlords.
“The tracks I’m working on right now are: Landsbyen (the Village), Trusselen (the threat), Slaget (the battle), Gravferd (the funeral), Sorgen (the sorrow), Minner (the memories), Vandring (the journey), Håpet (the hope).”
“Please check out my Bandcamp page where I have uploaded the first song: Trusselen (the threat).
“A scout have found the peaceful village and reports back to his warlord, who summon his troops and prepare them for battle.
“They march towards the village in the cover of nightfall, torches raised for war!”
Torson, who started his metal career with Enslaved and then moved on Emperor, also played in Zyklon with Samoth of Emporer and has filled in for Satyricon. He also runs Emperial Tattoo studio and is a tattoo artist, and now, you can add successful side project launch to his resume.
