Isengard was the solo-project initially started in 1989 by Fenriz – one the key driving forces behind the legendary Darkthrone – due to him having many musical ideas he wanted to explore that didn’t strictly fit in with the style and music of his main band.

Under the Isengard moniker, Fenriz released 2 albums encapsulating Doom, Death, Black and Folk/Viking metal in the shape of Vinterskugge and Høstmørke. Finally we welcome the third addition to this cult project.

After a period of 25 long years since Isengard’s last studio output, and having recently unearthed a set of tracks from his own archive of material recorded back in those early glory days, this new series of tracks – which were thought to be lost – follow on from some of the Metal last heard on 1994’s Vinterskugge.

Vårjevndøgn presents a monumental slab of epic Heavy Metal mixed with a sombre Doomy Rock/Metal atmosphere, bringing to mind bands like US Heavy Metal veterans Pentagram. The album also includes 2 tracks previously only heard on the limited Traditional Doom Cult 7” Peaceville release from 2017.

Everything on Vårjevndøgn was performed and engineered by Fenriz himself. The tracks were all recorded between 1989 and 1993 at Necrohell Studios (notable for birthing Darkthrone’s classic Transilvanian Hunger and Panzerfaust albums).

Vårjevndøgn was mastered by Jack control at Enormous Door.
