Golden Core is a metal duo from Oslo Norway. The band was started in 2014 and consists of Simen Jakobsen Harstad (guitar) and Johannes Thor Sandal (drums, vocals).
Stylically, the band plays a cross between different genres, mainly sludge and stoner metal with elements of prog, noise rock, and doom metal. Golden Core has been compared to bands like Kyuss, Mastodon and Mayhem.
The two young metal rockers started playing together in the winter of 2014. Then only 9 and 11 years old. Later that same year, they played at a local festival in Oslo and have since then played numerous concerts in Norway, Denmark and Iceland.
Despite young age, Golden Core has already been well-known in the metal and underground scene in Oslo, with its concerts and good reviews in, among other things, Metal Hammer Norway. Golden Core have been supporting bands like Okkultokrati, Bongzilla and Napalm Death and they have played at the Norðanpaunk festival in Iceland, and GranittRock festival in Oslo with bands like Seigmen and Honningbarna.
