Biography

Haugesund, Norway (1999 – present)

From Haugesund, Norway, Sorgsvart is a one-man black metal band, consisting of member Sorg. Although preserving black metal integrity, the band consolidates a substantive degree of folk and melody, the consequence being an amalgam of music both unique and stimulating. Sorgsvart is planted in a political soil of anarchism, that of which is a recurrent lyrical theme. With increasing notoriety, Sorgsvart is certainly a musical force to be reckoned with.

Founded as a one man project 1999 in the dark and mystic woods of Hagland, the rebellious Norwegian Black Metal solo entertainer Sorg started out playing all instruments himself. Consequently Sorgvarts earliest compositions were based on synthesizer sounds only supported by percussion with no vocal or guitar tracks at all. The first demo „Min Grav I Ensomhet“ was created this way. Soon originator Sorg decided to expand Sorgvart´s activities - his songs were to become more complete with more instruments. The first direct hit song „Hagland – Mitt Land” was the result, originally written in 1999, it is considered a classic and genre milestone by insiders. Apart from standard instruments like guitar, bass, keyboards and drums, which are commonly employed in this kind of music, Sorg learned to play traditional, old Norwegian instruments, which add an interesting flavor to his unique, atmospheric music.
