Freedumb - Sudden Deaf - Reviewed By Hard Rock Info ! Check it out here at this link: http://www.hardrockinfo.com/reviews/2022/july.html#freedumb-feverish
FREEDUMB was founded in Moss, Norway in 2003. Their debut album, "The Freedumb Curse", was released in 2010, and another album, "Feeding The Tapeworm", in 2016. A third album, "Post-Modern Dark Age", came out in 2019. There have also been an EP and a couple of singles if I get it right.
About a month ago they released this 3-track EP. And the music they play is an alternative rock/punk/metal hybrid, that is said to fit fans of PENNYWISE, KVELERTAK and POISON IDEA. That doesn't necessarily mean that they sounds exactly like any of them though. But it's catchy and energetic anyway, and to me it's mainly punk rock, even though it's of the alternative kind. 3 very good songs anyway. - Hard Rock Info !

The previous album «Post-Modern Dark Age» came in the autumn of 2019 and the band's concert activities to promote the album in 2020 were interrupted and a performance during Trondheim Calling in 2020 was the band's last concert before everything closed down. In 2021, there were signs of life again from Freedumb and an alternative EP version of the debut album The Freedumb Curse (2010) was released in a limited edition on 12 »vinyl with a silkscreen cover. In September 2021, "Get Away" came as the first single from the upcoming album "Social Hangover" and the song received an overwhelming reception internationally in the alternative rock / punk / metal press.
Freedumb was started by Torstein Magnus Eriksen (Norsk Råkk, Friksjon), Ole Vanem (Knuste Ruter) and Thomas Walland Hansen (The Supervisors) in the winter of 2003 in Moss . In 2010, "The Freedumb Curse" came out on Tonehjulet Kräftpest, and Freedumb was selected for PYRO on NRK's rating "Top 10 most promising bands in 2010". The following year, guitarist Thomas Walland Hansen quit and Kim Trøbråten (Fork) joined. In 2016, the follow-up album "Feeding The Tapeworm" was released on Tonehjulet Kräftpest and Freedumb went on heir most comprehensive Norwegian tour. At the end of the tour, Ole Vanem throws in the drumsticks and in the winter of 2017, Petter Cindahl (Bits Between / Your Epitaph) became the new drummer in Freedumb.
The band started recording a new album with producer Hans Tømmerholen (Bits Between) in the summer of 2017 . In August 2017, Big Day Records released the single "Let it slide" which received rave reviews and sneak onto several official Spotify playlists. In October 2017, the shocking news came that Cindahl had passed away and the band was put on hold. In the spring of 2018, Arne-Magnus Fjelle (Blodstrupmoen) was announced as the new drummer.
