New album GLADIATOR with Mathisen, Hoff, Novak

In October 2019, Per Mathisen and Jan Gunnar Hoff did a tour with US-drummer Gary Novak and also recorded an album with the music. Due to corona Mathisen and Hoff were not able to visit the studio in Verdal, Norway for 1 year and the project was delayed. So, in springtime 2021 the project was continued and mixed by sending files and mixes between Tony & Kriss in Lydhagen studios and Hoff, Mathisen. Mastering afterwards by Morten Lund. The result is soon to be released on Losen Records.
