When sculptor Spacebrain released The Dark Side And The Bright Side in 2011, the debut album from his SuchThauS project, it was immediately apparent that not only was the music he produced eclectic, but so too were his collaborators, ranging from Maniac (Skitliv, ex-Mayhem) to  Current 93’s David Tibet, Fredrik A. Juell  (Burning Rubber,  Berserk Bastards) and singer Sibob Jawara. 


Now, with the band’s second album Motorbrain taking shape, it seems that the tradition is set to continue; Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth dropped by Spacebrain’s Oslo home recently resulting in him contributing vocals on one of the new tracks, which also showcases a performance by SuchThauS drummer Hellhammer (Mayhem).


A video for the track, entitled ‘Walls Of Berlin’, was filmed on the spur of the moment and can be seen here.


Explaining how his unexpected contribution to Motorbrain came about Niklas Kvarforth said: “Last weekend, Hoest (Taake) and I were on our way to a studio outside Oslo to do some recording for a project we’re both involved in. We had a few hours to kill in the capital before catching our train and ended up meeting some old friends of ours. An evening which unexpectedly resulted in additional recordings in the living room of former Skitliv’s bassist Spacebrain for his upcoming SuchThauS album. Spacey filmed some of it, which kinda bothered me at first, but for him… I owe him way more than that. Looking forward to hearing the results.”
