Artist Biography Available in: Kaizers Orchestra was a Norwegian alternative rock group that formed on 1 January, 2000.
They are notable for being among the first non-black metal Norwegian bands or artists singing in their native language to become popular beyond Scandinavia. To other Norwegians, the band is instantly recognizable both because of their unique, unpredictable style, and because of vocalist Ottesen's distinctive Jæren dialect, shared by four of the other band members.
In 2012, the group announced that following a 2013 "Farewell Tour", they would take a long break. Their final concert was held on September 14, 2013 in Stavanger, and was also streamed live online.
