VARDAN “Dreaming”

VARDAN to me sounds like a one-man project. Like it the pseudonym for some dude sitting in his living room recording stuff on his computer. Musically this is black metal in all its primitive essence. This is the kind where the guitar cuts right through your ears like sharp surgical instruments. I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again but I like this kind of primitive, basic black metal that VARDAN plays. That whole Burzum-ish atmosphere speaks volumes to me. I think it has to do with being Swedish and living in darkness and grayness most of the year. You get a bit melancholic when the sun does not shine when you get up in the morning and neither shines when you go to bed. For that purpose alone this album fits like a glove. And that is enough for me. Anders Ekdahl
