Carl, check out Hardingrock. Immediately.[/quote:1zp8lh0d]
I found their MySpace page with a few tunes on it: Cool. I'm not wholly convinced that the death/black metal vox on "Faens marsj" add a lot, but that may be because I've never been a big fan of ye olde cookie monster vocals. (They work for me sometimes, like on Amorphis, but usually not so much.) I might have been tempted to use more of Heidi's vox, but then again I am a fan of female vocals over heavy music, so again that might just be me. I dig the Hardanger fiddle with metaloid rhythms though. Right on! Googling around, I found an interview with Ihsahn saying how fiddler Knut Buen was interested in taking little segments of traditional tunes and using them as a basis from which to build a rock riff; that's an idea I've played with a little bit now and again, and intend to do more with. The other track there, "Daudingen", is considerably more mellow in tone, but groovily atmospheric. I can sometimes catch bits of the Nynorsk lyrics on this one. (I used to speak passable if broken Swedish, which made at least some Norwegian dialects and variants semi-comprehensible when I heard them ... though rather less so these days!)

Yeah, good stuff! Thanks for the tip. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> I hope to be able to check out more of their music.[/quote:1zp8lh0d]

You want me to upload the cd for you? I actually have an indepth interview with him about the project. I'll try and scan it into the computer. It appeared in one of the issues of Zero Tolerance Magazine. view post
