folkloric necro metal

Rigid drum-machine beats and soaring, ambient, melodic guitar brought to you by this Norwegian four piece. Sort Vokter features Vidar Vaaer (Ildjarn, Thou Shalt Suffer, Emperor) and his co-conspirator Nidhogg who is the man behind the Tolkien-esque art on the Ildjarn releases.

Trance inducing black metal recorded while under the influence of T.H.C. (excluding Vidar Vaaer). Glowing and brilliant. Not for pop music fans.

Recently re-released on CD with new artwork by Transcendental Creations out of Canada. Excellent and highly recommended label.

In Norse, Sort Vokter means "Black Guardian".
