INDIE RECORDINGS PRESENTS
PROFANE SOLSTICE FROM THE NORTH
KAMPFAR & VREID + DREAMARCHER
"When it comes right down to it, I can think of no better standard bearers for the true spirit of Norwegian Black Metal than these four mighty warriors…"
- No Clean Singing
Kampfar presents the fiercest and most intense recording of their career. Since its first conception in 1994 with folk and classical music influences, via the colder winds on Kvass, the band has kept on renewing, and elevated into the black metal authority that reaches its peak on “Profan”. Witness them live!
““Sólverv” is not just another album, this is the definition of our lives and heritage. We share a bond since our childhood days, and the fire burns stronger than ever. We strive for the timeless, and through our music we lose track of time.” - Hváll (bass, songwriter)
The Norwegian Grammy nominated Vreid venture back to their roots on their 7th album titled “Sólverv”. Cold dissonance and feverish melodies embellish this opus. Inspired by the blood heritage of Hváll who, alongside his fellow band members, hails from the deep valleys of Sogndal in Norway and out to the world!
Dreamarcher comes from the west coast of Norway and skillfully balances the abrasive with beauty and sensitivity. Their music reflects having grown up in a small town littered with decaying factories between the majesty of glacier covered mountains rising out of the Hardanger fjord. From dark and melodic group vocals to hardcore screams, head splitting guitar riffs to ambient melancholic, blasting to spaced out instrumentals Dreamarcher blends the boundaries of genre. Influences range from Deafhaven, Converge, Mastodon and The Mars Volta to A Place To Bury Strangers, Baroness and Sunn O))).
