Green Carnation - Sweet Leaf

GREEN CARNATION is new a new acquaintance, a band that was formed as early as in 1990, but after Terje "Tchort" Schei joined EMEPEROR for the "Darkside Eclipse" album shortly after, the band was put on hold until the debut album, "A Journey To The End Of The Night" was released in 2000. "Light of Day, Day of Darkness" followed in 2001, before the band took a change in direction, with "A Blessing In Disguise" (2003) and "The Quiet Offspring" (2005) before the band went all-acoustic with "Acoustic Verses" (2006). GREEN CARNATION established their cult status among progrock and avantgarde metal fans all over the world in the early 2000s with their 60-minute masterpiece Light of Day, Day of Darkness and have been critically acclaimed throughout their career for their artistic creativity and astonishing musical concepts.

That's about it, no more records, but the future looks bright.

On August 12, 2016, it was announced that EMEPEROR would be reunite again in 2017 for a special set of performances to celebrate their 20th anniversary second studio album "Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk". So I guess more will come (: On the bands homepage you can read following lines:
