History[edit]

Ida Haukland, 2015

Triosphere formed in 2004, and released their first EP, Deadly Decadence, in 2005. 2006 saw the Norwegian release of their debut album Onwards, which was subsequently released in Asia, the United States and the rest of Europe.[1] Created as a trio, the band's line-up expanded in 2006 to incorporate second guitarist Byberg, only recognized as a live member before.[2]

In 2006 and 2007, Triosphere hade done two Norwegian tours with W.A.S.P., as well as three European tours from 2007 to 2009 alongside several famous artists or bands: W.A.S.P. once again, but also Kotipelto, Chris Caffery, Kamelot, Jorn, Arch Enemy and Destruction. In August 2009, the band received the award for Metal album of the Year from "Just Plain Folks Music Organization", the world's largest independent music organization, in competition with more than 40.000 artists in all genres around the world.[2]

Their second album, The Road Less Travelled was picked up by AFM Records and released on May 28, 2010.[3] The album is for the first time produced by Bergensen (also co-productor of the previous album) but also by Haukland.

They later go on tour with Sonata Arctica on their Days of Grays tour. During the tour Bygerg must stop concerts because of a "small back prolapse". Triosphere was joigned by a substitute drummer, Anders Vinje from the band Divided Multitude.

On 2012 Triosphere toured again, this time supporting Kamelot. On October 12, 2012, the band announced that Jørgensen would not be able to be a part of the tour. He was temporarily replaced by Vidar Lehmann from bands Tellus Requiem and Imperial Deathcult.[4]

On November 1, 2013, Triosphere announced that their drummer Ørjan Aare Jørgensen decided to leave the band.[5] He continued to act as drummer until replacement was found, and departed after a last concert in March 7, 2014. He will be featured in the upcoming album, his drum parts having been recorded. Triosphere subsequently performed with various session drummers.

On September 12, 2014, after four years of work on their third album, Triosphere revealed the release date of November 7, 2014, along with its name, The Heart of the Matter. A teaser sample was published on their YouTube channel on September 23.[6] A few days before the release, they announced that Kenneth Tårneby, who had been performing with them since March 2014, as their now full-time drummer.[7]
