This release from 1995 by Norway’s Kvist stands as an underground classic, & is now highly regarded as one of the greater examples of the symphonic black metal genre. Cold & uncompromising, Kvist offers black metal loosely in the style of early Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon, & Emperor, yet still maintaining their own distinctive sound and edge.
All in all, ‘For Kunsten Maa Vi Evig Vike’ is a storm of melodic & atmospheric black metal, containing 6 stunning epics of dark cold atmosphere, with lyrics written in the band’s native Norwegian only heightening the feel of the album. It was recorded at Endless Sound Studios in Oslo (Turbonegro).
Kvist only released this one album before the band split up, marking it now as a timeless cult release, with members later going on to join acts such as Urgehal.
This edition of ‘For Kunsten Maa Vi Evig Vike’ is presented on 180gm black vinyl.
