(Wikipedia)Vintersorg ("Winter Sorrow" in English) is a Swedish folk/viking, black metal-influenced band from Skellefteå, Sweden formed in 1994 under thename Vargatron (Wolfthrone in English). Lyrically, the band deals with topics on fantasy, mythology, nature, the cosmos and metaphysics.Vintersorg means "Winter Sorrow," but the name was taken from the Isfolket series by Margit Sandemo where the character Vintersorg is the sonof a great pagan leader.

The sound of Vintersorg has vastly changed over the years, as his earlier sound had more of a folk influence, and his later more of an experimentalsound. This transformation was most notably marked with the release of the Cosmic Genesis album, and the change in sound progressed fromalbum to album, with the 2004 album The Focusing Blur being an extremely avant. garde album.

Along with this change in musical style, the lyrical topics began to shift as well. In the past the lyrics were all sung and written in Swedish anddealt with topics of nature and paganism. With the advent of Cosmic Genesis, the lyrics were now written and sung mostly in English and nowdealt with scientific ideas and philosophies dealing with topics such as metaphysics, astronomy, and astrology. In the Cosmic Genesis bookletVintersorg thanks Dr. Carl Sagan, author of the book Cosmos.

Vintersorg (aka Andreas Hedlund) is constantly creating music. He is the front-man of several bands including Vintersorg, Otyg, Borknagar,Havayoth, Fission, Cronian and Waterclime. « hide
