Sølvkre has been likened to the Italian film composer Fabio Frizzi, who was responsible for some of the most haunting horror soundtracks of the eighties, as well as the Toru Minegushi and Asuka Ohta’s soundtrack for the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Another common association is Nine Inch Nails.
Sølvkre is the new project from Gird_09, after it was decided that the latter project name would be retired. While a departure from the collage like style of Gird_09 the music remains dark and firmly electronic in nature. Sølvkre is the Norwegian word for silverfish, and the music is half rooted in fascination for creepy crawlies, and half in gothic visions of foggy graveyards and nightmares. This eponymous debut EP contains four tracks of slowly churning ambient music.
Defining your own genre is always tricky, and Sølvkre has elected to use terms such as gravebient and south coast gothic to describe the music. Let us know if you think the description fits the sound.

Our latest compilation is out, and it’s a good one, with a flurry of bands you’ve never heard before.
Which is what we want to give you.
Download it for free from Bandcamp, or stream it.
Yeah, you heard it! For the first time ever we’re doing an open call for contributions. We’re doing a compilation called Litanies of Vindication, and you can be on it. Possibly, you SHOULD in fact be on it. All you need to do is:
1. Record a song that is not utter shit, or in a poppy genre that just doesn’t fit the profile. If we don’t like it, we’re not gonna include it. We’re broad minded though. (Endzeit EBM and nu-metal will not be considered for inclusion.)
2. Send it to Gird_09@grimtownmusic.com in Wav-format. And label the file with your project name and the name of the track. Failure to get it to me in clearly labeled wav-format means you won’t be included, and I won’t bother nagging you to get it right. If you can’t get it right, you’re a moron. Also, we will not master your track.
3. Keep your track under nine minutes, inlcuding silent parts.
4. Do these things by October first. The compilation will be released on the following sunday at http://grimtown.bandcamp.com/
It’s very simple. Now, go do it.
And please let your recording friends know!
Who knows what they worship in there, or even worse, how?
Who knows what sinful secrets of the flesh they share with each other under the patient gaze of their idols?
Who knows what – or even whom they tie to their altars?

The world is yet again sinking into a bog of despair as leaders in the east and west fight proxy wars and try to get the upper hand on each other. Where the original cold war was fought in territories like Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, Nicaragua and Afghanistan this new one has so far seen battles over Kosovo, Georgia, Syria and the Ukraine.
Where to next?
Here at Grimtown Records we are no longer content to stand idly by and watch the world slide into another cold war. In fact we mean to bring it about by whatever means we have at our disposal.

Proxy wars, nuclear threats, espionage and constant fear. The cold war came and went.
And then it came back. Not since I was a kid has Russians and Americans threatened each other with nuclear annihilation over some squabble in a satelite state.
This means nostalgia!
