Martin Cornel and The Mind Invaders

Album Title: People At The Gate EP
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Rock
Martin Cornel hails from Norway, but you wouldn't know it from listening to his debut EP. It's rather ridiculous to believe that musical sound has anything to do with geography these days, and yet this scribe would've placed a rather sizeable bet that Cornel was born and raised somewhere in Midwestern North America. With backing provided by Cornel's long-time band the Mind Invaders (which apparently includes a guitarist that looks like the Norwegian Chuck Norris), the five-song People At The Gate relies on prominent guitars and a well favoured kick drum. Cornel's vocals are rough and often flat, but it all melds together so nicely into that classic sound we like to call rock'n'roll. Check out the unlikely standout "Lou", a dreary ballad perfect for those rainy indie days.
