Ildjarn Ildjarn on Limited Edition 2LP

True to a life-long interest in underground extreme metal, Season of Mist will re-release Norwegian cult act Ildjarn's first three full-length albums: Ildjarn (1995), Strength and Anger (1996) and Forest Poetry (1996). The long-running and now defunct black metal solo project's material has been sought after by collectors and is finally and proudly being reissued, all three will be adorned with brand new artwork and are available on gatefold double LP.

"It’s not hard to see how the likes of Willing Feet, Bone Awl, and even Raspberry Bulbs could owe a hefty debt of gratitude to albums like 1995’s Ildjarn. Nearly every song is populated by simplistic distorted power chords and strong bass lines that bleed together into one steady monotonous drone, broken up by occasional ambient passages a la Burzum's Filosofem that make more sense when his latter-day synthesizer fixation is taken into account. 

"The uniformly coarse vocals are almost always buried low in the mix. As for the percussion, even the most casual of music listeners would have a hard time believing that human hands are holding down those beats. Vaaer works his rickety kit into a lather of constant, unapologetically simple 4/4 beats that serve as both metronome and, often, inadvertent focal point and an absurd number of drum count-ins serve to further disorient. 

"The majority of its 27 songs follow the same rough format, but Vaaer does throw his listener the odd bone on dense, hypnotic tracks like the slow, punishing “Krigere” or uncharacteristically well-developed melody on “Blikkets Storhet”. Here, he proves that he can write compelling, nuanced material. He just doesn’t particularly care to." - Kim Kelly, Pitchfork
