Details

Sarke’s fourth album, featuring the icy and grim screams from Darkthrone’s lead vocalist
Nocturno Culto, is truly the grandest and most dynamic album from Sarke to this date. ‘Bogefod’ presents nine tracks that stretch from
lingering atmospheric doom to thrash to black metal and technical metal - all within the realms of superb quality. It is a highly
conceptual album spinning around the evil walking dead Torolv Bogefod from the Norse classic Eyrbyggja saga. After an ugly death
Torolv breaks out of his tomb. Dead, yet undead, he terrorizes the villagers and causes deaths and devastations. This Viking story is a
1000 years old. Several retrospective musical elements enhance the underlying story, as the warm sound of a 100-year-old guitar
colors the otherwise icy and grim atmosphere of Nocturno Culto’s screams. In addition to this, the ballad in the track ‘Dawning’ in
between all the ripping and chilling moments throughout the album enriches the contrast and contributes to telling the story’s true
and folky nature.
Sarke is in a sense a band formed by legends of the darker metal genre, with the pre-mentioned Nocturno Culto on vocals, Steinar
Gundersen (Satyricon) on guitar, Thomas “Sarke” Bergli (Khold, Tulus) on bass and Anders Hunstad (El Caco) on keyboards. Together they
have crafted an extremely immersive album surely to draw the listener into a historical and dark universe in a way no one ever have
before. Both Sarke as a band, and the story Bogefod’s lyrics presents will take part in a movie called SAGA, where Nocturno Culto has a
leading role.
“This album delves into the core of what Sarke is all about.” - Nocturno Culto (Sarke, Darkthrone)
“Since it’s a concept album it should be digested in its entirety. It will pay off.”- Steinar Gundersen (Sarke, Satyricon)
