VED BUENS ENDE / Written In Waters (1995)

VBE are an avant-garde metal band from Norway.  Their music sounds wrong; it’s filled with intentionally atonal bass, discordant changes and unexpected jazz breaks alongside the more traditional black metal noise.  Special mention must go to Einar Sjursø for his remarkable drum techniques.  It takes a long time to really appreciate the diversity of Written In Waters but once it gets under your skin it stays there.  Sadly, it was the only full length album they ever released.

Songs of Note: I Sang for the Swans; You, That May Wither
