Taken from: Avantgarde Music "One of the strongest hopes for the future of Norwegian black metal is back! Even though the project was formed in 1993, songwriter/main man Hoest preferred keeping a rather low profile in the scene until finally signing a deal with Wounded Love records in 1997. Nevertheless, 3 demos and a 7" EP, all highly acclaimed, were released during the first 4 years of existance. The 1999 debut album "Nattestid..." got high and even top scores in most reviews, wherein critics predicted a bright future for the band. Although still maintaining the essence of the black metal style which originated in Norway in the early 90¹s, the 2nd album shows more progressive elements and a band with a strong identity. The freezing cold sound production was again obtained with Pytten in the Grieghallen studios of Bjoergvin (which is the old name for the band's hometown Bergen). Through the recording, guitarist/vocalist Hoest was aided by second guitarist C. Corax, bassist/pianist Keridwen and theold Trelldom/Gaahlskagg/Sigfader drummer Mutt. A co-operation which also proved to be a powerful live unit. Like "Nattestid...", "...Bjoergvin..." is a 7 tracks concept album, written in the old Norse Futhark runes and formulated in Norwegian verseform with thorough rhyme & rhythm. Hoest's writings are based upon personal thoughts & feelings, metaphorically presented in timeless Norwegian scenery inspired by the vast Norwegian cultural heritage. This time, the main topic is death... For those who miss the good old days and the essence of Norwegian BLACK metal !"
