Biography

From the band’s mypace:

Cold and grim early 90´s inspired Norsk black metal, resurrecting sounds and ideals from the masters and creators of the genre, Hrimthurs gives rise to works reminiscent of Burzum and Dark Throne with hateful and expressive vocals compared to that of a tortured soul. The guitar riffs of Hrimthurs are considered by many in the underground to be of invaluable quality, for they are different to those of modern day black metal bands as they have ties to the early thrash roots from where black metal was spawned. Hrimthurs stands out from today´s underground black metal scene because his works are more focused on the expressions and atmospheres that gave birth to the original scene in Norway some years ago, claiming that it is very important to keep the old sound alive and not let the expression in the music be dictated by the speed. Musically, Hrimthurs has an authentic, traditional and somewhat primitive approach as a focal point; this overall sound is due to him thinking it imperative to keep the cultural identity in all black metal compositions. Although thinking that it takes much talent to create and execute black metal and death black metal subgenres, which dominate the scene today, in fairness the respective origins are being lost and somewhat forgotten or unthought of… Amidst the raw guitars and hateful vocals there is also a very unique angle in which Hrimthurs conducts his dark arts.
