Artist appreciation series - Pt. 4: Varde
For this edition of our ongoing series, we hear from Norway's Varde.
VARDE - Fedraminne CD/DLP
VARDE present, with the immense primordial forces of their native Norway coursing through its veins, their debut full-length album "Fedraminne". Raw yet sophisticated, VARDE's channeling of ancestral memories is fuelled by their deep connection to the national romantic era, and is centered around traditional Norwegian poems from the 19th century.
VARDE´s blackened metal is steeped in lingering folk melodies and ferocious metal riffing, and the passionate vocals echo the call of the wild Nordic nature. There's also a place for somber acoustics, ethereal saxophone leads and industrial beats on "Fedraminne", boldly telling its story with all means necessary.
Instincts, visions and memories from their forefathers, passed down through the corridors of time, have inspired VARDE to this timeless creation. Through "Fedraminne", in more ways than one, the past is alive.
