Biography

(1997 – present)

Norwegian , self-described as “Bunker Metal”.

Drottnar is bizarre; orthodox bedlam skillfully crafted through cutting- edge unorthodoxy. The totality of the concept compels beyond what trends or external preferences will ever decide. Conceived through a series of deeply vested intentions and ideals, Drottnar was proudly established in 1997. The bandmembers’ previous relationship to death metal evolved in patterns of fierceness, slightly changing into a more extreme taste.

The band’s first promo A White Realm was recorded in 1998, containing four black metal tracks. Staying quite underground for two more years, the material was eventually released on the first full lenght album Spiritual Battle in 2000. After the debut album, Drottnar moved to more experimental and technical directions, and the wrath of the four track EP Anamorphosis was unleashed through Momentum Scandinavia in 2003. This release is characterized as the first manifest of Drottnar’s now well known and peculiar style of black metal, also recognized as pioneering bunker metal to the inner circles.

In 2006 Drottnar again tightened its punishing musical fist through a noteworthy full- length album. Welterwerk was recorded in Subsonic Society and produced by Lars Klokkerhaug, who previously worked with bands as Satyricon, Darkthrone, Enslaved and Red Harvest. The album captures both the grimness of old-school black metal, as well as piercing contemporary avant-garde with revolutionary new themes. Welterwerk was followed up by the 7” vinyl featuring Victor Comrade and Ad Hoc Revolt.

    Metalheads are missing out if they refuse to give this band a go because of their religion. Although it has to be said that Christians are missing out a lot more by not listening to bands with Satanic or Pagan imagery and beliefs.

    Yeah I started with their newest album and after hearing their debut and their second album I was like "what happened to this band?" I know they needed time to create their sound which they fully established on "Welterwerk" and which makes them so original. I will be honest and say that I don't really need their first two albums and that I won't listen to them as often as their last two albums, but I will always respect what this band managed to do.

    The fact that they created their own genre was a good indicator of originality, but I still was taken aback when I first listened through their last 2 albums. Much talent went into making Drottnar what it is. God bless.

    Massive respect for Drottnar. After hearing Welterwerk it was a long scary wait for anything else from this band. Stratum injects a brutal dose of black metal buggery deep into my gloopy asshole.

    new album is very interesting. It's like they threw DHG's Supervillain Outcast and Satyricon's Rebel Extravaganza into a blender

    I remember reading somewhere there was a delay with the CD version but I'm pretty sure there will be one. I also want a cd and not a download.

    Does anyone know whether the new album is being released as a CD version at all? From what I could find out, it seemed that it is only on iTunes as of now :( Such a shame if it'll be the only format for the album.
