“Grá was formed in 2010 by Heljarmadr and Dimman. The band has since then released en EP, three full lenght albums, a mini-CD, two singles, a full live video, done numerous live concerts around Europe and several music videos. Grá performs classic Swedish styled black metal, alternating between Swedish and English lyrics.
The name Grá comes from a mixture of the Icelandic “grár” and the Swedish “grå”, simply meaning “gray”. The major content of the lyrical concept is based upon the ancient Scandinavian religion, or rather upon the dark aspects of ancient Scandinavian spirituality.”

“Of all the Icelandic bands that work the dark arts, NYIÞ is probably the most elusive and mysterious.” – stranger-aeons.com
A weekend in Reykjavik for a MORTIIS photo shoot on friday and the Reykjavik Goth Night at Gaukurinn on Saturday. The event was really cool, but more about that later when I can check the pics from the venue. Need to sort out pics from the shoot first.
We got some obstacles and restrictions (lights, weather, temperature etc etc xD), but we had the most awesome help from Tómas and Anna, who drove us around and assisted when needed:) So we worked with what we got and I think we did alright. What a fantastic country!!!
“In Slaughter Natives is the piooner band in the symphonic industrial field. Their music is a mix of heavy electronics, martial percussions, religious chants, orchestral samples and gruesome demonic vocals. After releasing some great albums on Cold Meat Industry and Staalplaat, the project remains dormant since many years but keeps getting on stage from time to time”

ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO played when the storm hit the boat. Everything on stage had to be properly secured and both the band and the crowd had sometimes hard time just to keep in balance but everyone was in great mood and the performance was just magnificent!:D I´m not exactly sure when the ORE part ended and TriORE started. The last song(s) could be TriORE feat. ORE. I just take it from where the ORE flag was carried out from the stage:)
(As an extra bonus: The wonderful Attera Nox from the new ORE video/album was working in the merch booth;)

“After putting ARCANA to rest in the past year, Peter Bjärgö has now channelled his creative energy towards his solo works. On what is now his 4th full length solo album, we are granted a calm, thoughtful and at times somber aural voyage. Melodic atmospheric guitar work, lush string arrangements and slow, heavy percussive rhythms are present and elevated to new heights”

“Most of the Danish band’s songs are achingly solemn songs that a writer like Edgar Allan Poe or Charles Baudelaire could have admired . Led by Kim Larsen, the band fittingly employs a traditionalist, Romantic iconography to paint devastating portraits of irreconcilable loss, love, and death. It’s as simple, and as complicated, as that”
