The beginning of Norwegian local music press was in 1978, when papers Puls and Nye Takter began to publish regularly. Unlike competitor Nye Takter, Puls had a greater focus on American music and popular culture. Disagreements with the publishers led the editor Tore Olsen in 1985 to take over most of the editorial staff and start Beat. Until 1993 Puls was a monthly magazine, since 1993 a more frequent publication. In 1996 the name was thanged to Puls Furore. The printed publication ceased in 1999.
