Biography

In 2010 five young musicians from Skien, Norway, made a very impressive entrance into the Metal world with their debut album "Ripples", released under the band name Aspera' by none less than top progressive label InsideOut Music.

Media across the globe replied positively with numerous excellent reviews for "Ripples" throughout the year and the band built up a great following, not only in their home country. They supported Tarja Turunen in Switzerland and Spain and played various festivals in Scandinavia.

Unfortunately both promotion upcoming live shows had to be put on hold when it turned out that the band was required to change its name due to unforeseen technical reasons.

However, the transition is complete and ABOVE SYMMETRY was born. A re-issue of the acclaimed "Ripples" album (including 3 special additional audio tracks and a video clip enhancement as bonus), was released on April 25th, 2011 all over Europe. 

In the meantime, while things seemed rather quiet for the band energetic frontman Atle Pettersen had entered the "X Factor Norway" TV talent show which was broadcasted with large national buzz in the second half of 2010. Despite the massive amount of competition in shows such as this, Atle was runner-up in the final – a true testament to what a great singer and performer he is.
