Meet The Soundbyte: Expertly-crafted electro prog-metal
Norwegian avant-garde group blending prog metal and electronica
“The technology shouldn’t control the music; the musician should control the technology.”
So says Trond Engum, the Norwegian bandleader of The Soundbyte. The avant-garde ambient band, built primarily around Engum’s ingenious guitar and electronic sounds, is a by-product of prog metallers The 3rd And The Mortal, which Engum formed and fronted in 1992.
