FRSTMRNE entered the rock scene with a high quality track that echoes the future of rock music with hints of metal. FRSTMRNE tackles the ever-evolving rock genre with a unique cyberpunk sound that fuses with rock and metal respectively. The idea behind FRSTMRNE was inspired by films such as Bladerunner and Ready Player One. FRSTMRNE’s unique sound comes from combining the musical stylings of electronic and pop artists like Halsey and Illenium with rock/metal artists including Bring Me the Horizon and While She Sleeps. The band’s name was influenced by a sword in the ever-popular online video game, World of Warcraft, pronounced FROSTMOURNE. FRSTMRNE’s love for digital art can be felt through their all-immersive, one-of-a-kind sound. The debut song to come out of the group is “Black Lotus” and immediately you’ll find yourself drawn in by the unique intro to come from FRSTMRNE. The song is a compelling first entry for the FRSTMRNE and one that has us hooked for their upcoming song “Bright Lights”.
We were also able to secure a nice little interview with Jentzen Flaskerud who welds the guitar in the band found below.
