Sølvkre : Besatt
Norwegian black industrial / dark ambient / gravebient
Grimtown Records 2017 (ePorke003)
Besatt is a Norwegian word that translates into posessed, occupied, haunted or obsessed, and this neatly sums up the themes of this album by Sølvkre. It’s harsh, morbid, atmospheric and contemplative.
Sølvkre is a one person project from Gird_09, who has previously released music under that name and Kultur Terror, as well as FRzO and Cult of Twins with his partner Batcheeba. This album is the culmination of more than twenty years as part of the Norwegian music underground, and is available now on multiple platforms.
“Drawing on themes of death the production of the album coincided with the death of my father, something that greatly informed several tracks. Among other things the sound of a medical ventilator can be heard on one of the tracks. I literally used my father’s dying breath as part of my creation.”
