Pitch Black Mentality started as a project in 2008/09 between Jarle H Olsen and Frank Natås in Norway / Bergen.
As they had been playing and touring together in a Metallica-tribute band for nearly a decade,
they decided to make their own melodic thrash-metal band , utilizing the fierce tecknique and
amazing guitar-shredding from Jarle - Combined with the heavy and raw riffstyle from Frank.
Soon 9 songs took shape during 2009 - And friends and collegues of Jarle H Olsen - Rodrigues Garcia
and Cristian Carrsco Lara -Both from Chile - Joined in as studiosession musicians on bass and drums.
After lyrics was written by Natås,the vocal duties fell on bassplayer/guitarist/vocalist Tore Christer Storlid
,deriving from band like Brutallica , Artificial Comfort , Mahirim and Audrey Horne -(session guitarist live).
And for the first time the songs came alive and the band got its identity ..
Finally Jarle H Olsen gave the songs depth and magic with his epic lead guitars- The album "the Pitch black reality"
was born - mixed by the legendary Tommy Hansen at Jailohuse Studios(Helloween, TNT ,JORN, D.A.D ++) in Denmark .
Bjarte K Helland (Brutallica , mahirim , Artificial Comfort ++) joined us on drums late 2012.
Pitch Black Mentality is looking foreward to play live and spread its music thruout 2013 and further on...
