Hailing all the way from Bergen, Norway. Drott (Old norse term for war band) is comprised of Arve Isdal (Enslaved), Ivar Thormodsæter (Ulver) and Matias Monsen. After releasing their self-titled EP in March 2021, the band are set to share their first full-length album ‘Orcus’ due 24th September via By Norse music. They share the track The Marauders taken from their forthcoming album.
With their varied musical background ranging from metal and jazz to classical music, they create the genre which can only be described as Drott. Inspired by forces of nature, superstition and spirituality the trio explores light within darkness through their music.
The band comments:
“The Marauders are not visible through the layers of mist. You can hear them hanging in ropes and sharpening their tools of mischief before their dire intentions are manifested through slow, dark riffs and slaughtering, heavy beats. They are lost souls roaming the Underworld, vicious murderers and thieves constantly searching for prey.”
Atmospheric Nordic eeriness that crawls its way under your skin. A cacophony of percussive sounds, guitars that don’t sound like guitars and haunting noises that create an intense picture matching the spooky video.
