"Monofader" is a futurepop duo from Norway, fronted by Richard Bjørklund (also in Norway's "Spektralized"), with Sebastian R. Komor (from the band "Icon of Coil") on music and programming.Read More...
One fateful night in 2001, the duo decided to play around with some new ideas in the Icon of Coil studio. After a few hours of caffeinated collaboration, the two created a track which was to become the song "Solid Ground", which eventually made its way onto Norwegian Tatra Record's 2002 compilation "Serial Killer Electronics", under their then band name "Off:Tribe".
After that, the two produced more tracks together and released a 6-track demo tape several months later. They sent it to several labels, radio stations and DJs and received excellent feedback from listeners. Despite this, the project had to be put on hold while Komor and Bjørklund went on tours and were otherwise busy with their previous acts. In December 2003, while he was in Germany with Spektralized, Bjørklund gave a copy of their demo to Infacted Recordings and ended up getting signed to the label for Europe, and to Metropolis Records for North America.
The duo immediately began work on their first album, "Frost", which was released in 2004.
