Egil Hegerberg (born 23 March 1970) is a Norwegian comedian and musician known for his humorous lyrics and behaviour. He is best known as a bassist and vocalist, but also plays the guitar, keyboard and synth. He has experimented in several different genres such as punk rock, heavy metal, hard rock, stoner rock, acoustic rock, blues, noise rock, reggae and hip hop. He has played in numerous bands. Much of his notable work has been the result of his solo project Bare Egil Band, and bands like Thulsa Doom, Black Debbath, Hurra Torpedo, and Gartnerlosjen. Thulsa Doom is the only non-humorous band he has been involved with.
Black Debbath stole the Spellemannprisen award for best metal album from The Kovenant in 1999 as a joke in collaboration withKristopher Schau, their friend, who presented the award. Afterward, in his thanking speech, Hegerberg said, “Where is Satan when you need him the most?”.
