Solvarg/Ars ok fridar/2009 Album Review


  Solvarg  are  a  duo  from  Sweden  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  a  musical  style  that combines  neo-classical  music  with  dark  ambient  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2009  album "Ars  ok  fridar.

  Synths  are  very  dark and  atmospheric  sounding  combining  musical  influences  from  ambient  and  neo  classical  music  with  the  songs  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length  along  with  a  variety  of  many  different  musical  keys  being  added  to  the  music,  while  the  drum  programming  brings a  very  minimalism  sound  to  the  music, a s  for  the  sound  effects  which  are  utilized  on  the  last  song  they  bring  drone  elements  to  the  music.

  Vocals  and  songwriting  are  all  absent  from t his  recording  with  the  musical  being  all  instrumental,  while  the  song  titles  are  in  Swedish  and  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound

  In  my  opinion  this  is another  great  recording  from  Solvarg  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  dark  ambient  and  neo-classical  music,  you  should  check  this  album  out.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Skoge  Barn"  and  "Sangen  om  Solvarg  II".  RECOMMENDED.
