Pyrrhula by Nordvargr, 2008

Nordvargr x Beyond Sensory Experience (BSE) x Kenji Siratori -

Hendrik with Naer Mataron

Henrik Nordvargr Björk has to be one of the most well-known and prolific names in the post-industrial music scene. Recording under various guises (Folkstorm, Toroidh, Mz.412, Nordvargr, to name but a few), Henrik has been a long-time friend and ally of Cold Spring. They have released the final Folkstorm recordings and the magnificent Merzbow collaboration 'Partikel' in 2004. Work is in progress for the third part of this trilogy, 'Partikel III'.
Cold Spring released the full-length Nordvargr album 'Pyrrhula' in June 2008.2009 sees the much-requested re-issue of Folkstorm 'Victory Or Death' and 'Sweden'.

Nordvargr and Beyond Sensory Experience (both of MZ.412 fame, yet acknowledged on their own) make an excursion into the dark, violent, psychedelic world of the Japanese cyberpunk writer Kenji Siratori. Siratori's work was acclaimed by David Bowie and can be described as a surprise meeting of William S. Burroughs and Tetsuo the Iron Man. The collaboration of three unique parties formed a box set called Hypergenome666. This is a magnificent box-set containing 2 CDs with 80-pages booklet and a box set designed by Paul McCarroll (see

Naer Mataron
Formed at the end of 1994 by guitarist/vocalist Morpheas, Greece's Naer Mataron is committed to perpetrating the most extreme brand of black metal imaginable while glorifying their Hellenic heritage with their historically minded lyrics. 1997's "The Great God Pan" demo tape landed the group a deal with Black Lotus Records
Nordvargr - Interseller
Inspired by the power of space, infinite distances and emptiness. Nordvargr himself speaks of his release: "To me there is no greater evil than the emptiness of space, totally hostile and unfriendly to all life - an opposite to existence, at the same time the mother of all we know.” The album is marked out by heavy and meaty sounds, strong dark ambient exhaust for creation of whom Nordvargr used only field recordings and sounds made by space objects transmitted by satellites. Very dark, black ambient.This release was limited to 444 pieces.


  1. You spell like crap -
    His name is Henrik, not "Hendrik".
    The black album above is called Interstellar, not Interseller.
    Henrik is not in that Naer Mataron picture.
    The link to his webpage is wrong.

    Other than that it is good!

  2. Agreeing with the previous speaker.
