:BOLVERK: - Uaar CD
Hailing from the cold North, Extreme Norwegian Metal Vikings :BOLVERK: just released their debut album “Uaar” via Wormholedeath worldwide!
:BOLVERK: is the latest musical adventure from brothers in arms: Christopher “Rammr” Rakkestad (Elvarhøi, Jordskip, ex. Ragnarok), Lucass Edquist (Gnida, ex-Mork) Bjørn “Narrenschiff” Holter (Images at Twilight, ex-Illnath, ex-Aasmegin) and Thomas Bolverk (Under the Oak, Welcome to Hell, ex-Ragnarok, ex-Images at Twilight, ex-Darkness, ex-Black Currant etc…)
Carlo from Wormholedeath stated: Bolverk: is the project from my brother Thomas Hansen and it’s not just a release or an album for me, it’s like a piece of my heart. When Thomas asked me if I wanted to release this project I was absolutely and totally honored but when I listened to the album the feelings changed into something even stronger…I am so proud to be part of this project cause this record is simply amazing. Modern and Old School at the same time, Emotional and mercyless, groovy and fast, melodic and brutal at the same time…It has all the possible elements that a Metal fan would like to find in an album in 2022.
Produced by the mighty Devo from Marduk, this band is the proof that you don’t need the big budgets to conquer the world with music, cause this is exactly what they are going to do. :BOLVERK: is EXTREME NORWEGIAN METAL aiming to be as sad and melodic as Solstafir in one end and as brutal as Marduk in the other.
The title of the album, “Uaar”, means a bad year in older Norwegian language. This was usually used when the crops failed and people starved. It fits well with the state of the world for the last two years, we think.
