Sól án varma, translated Sun without radiance, is a 70
minute long piece written and performed by a select few
notorious names from the Icelandic black metal
underground. Founded by T.Í. and D.G. (members of
Misþyrming, Naðra, Núll, Drottinn, etc.), prominent
personnel of the Icelandic Vánagandr elite, Sól án varma is
more of an conceptual idea rather than a band or a side
Originally, Sól án varma, was commissioned as a special
one-of-a-kind show for Roadburn Festival 2018. The 70
minute piece has neither been heard before nor since this
special performance.
Having hosted Misþyrming as "Artist in Residence" at the
festival two years prior, Walter Hoeijmakers, Roadburn
director wanted the Icelandic musicians to bring a new and
compelling phenomenon to the table for the 2018 edition of
the festival. After a meeting with Walter in Iceland in 2017,
D.G. and T.Í. put together a unit of carefully selected
musicians to form what would later become the Sól án
varma concept. These members are: G.E. (Misþyrming,
Naðra, Svartidauði), Á.B.Z. (Carpe Noctem, Árstíðir Lífsins),
M.S. (Svartidauði, Drottinn), S.V. (Svartidauði, Drottinn) and
H.V. (Wormlust)
