Faeries of norse mythology roam a post-apocalyptic landscape. The gloom-groovy Black Anorak blends the sonic textures of black metal, norse folk and abandoned ruins with dark electronica and film music.

The album references cult norwegian action-music scores from the 80ies like Orion’s Belt and Etter Rubicon, while also incorporating elements of black metal, folk music and using samples from abandonded buildings and lost infrastructure in western norwegian fjords.
Black Anorak features contributions from folk musician Annlaug Børsheim on kveding, a particular norwegian vocal song technique, and the Hardangerfiddle, a traditional western norwegian string instrument, with a double set of strings to create sympathetic resonance to the main strings.
Composed, arranged, performed, programmed and produced by Gisle Martens Meyer. Vocals on “The Deepest Veil” by Annlaug Børsheim. Hardingfele on “The Deepest Veil” and “Toil 22” by Annlaug Børsheim. Published by Uncanny Planet, distribution by The Orchard.
