And with these rites for the damned, the show must certainly go on.

Jaggu is a band that formed in 2018, a heavy rock three-piece from Oslo, Norway. Based loosely in the doom/stoner genre with many diverse influences, Zack Wylde-esque guitar solos, and a pinch of black magic from the 80’s; Jaggu have churned out riffs and epic melodies from a haunted airplane control tower, by the old Airfield outside of Oslo, with a history dating back to World War 2. The music is written mostly from improvised pieces, crafted into finished songs.

Jaggu is:
Marius Melleby · Guitars, Vocals
Asbjørn Røen Halsten · Bass, Vocals
Nona Simpson · Drums

Bojan Bidovc // music enthusiast, promoter, misanthrop and sometimes a journalist as well
