Ildjarn where a 1 man band from Norway that played a very raw and primitive form of viking/black metal and this is a review of their 1999 album "Son Of The Northstar" which was released by Full Moon Productions.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with primitive black metal riffing that dominates though out the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast viking/black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding in the early 90's Norwegian vein and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals which are provided by Ihsahn of Emperor are all high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics which are written in Norwegian cover Norse Paganism and Nature, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Ildjarn where a very great sounding raw and primitive viking/black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fjerde Dag" and "Mot Kveld". RECOMMENDED BUY.
