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
Misţyrming, Nađra, 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 Misţyrming 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. (Misţyrming,
Nađra, Svartidauđi), Á.B.Z. (Carpe Noctem, Árstíđir Lífsins),
M.S. (Svartidauđi, Drottinn), S.V. (Svartidauđi, Drottinn) and
H.V. (Wormlust).
After a long and intensive writing and rehearsing period, the
group premiered the piece at the Roadburn Festival 2018 in
front of three-thousand fans in the 013-Venue in Tilburg.
A year after the performance, the group decided to make the
piece immortal by putting it into a properly presentable
recorded format. The group entered the studio and tracked
down most of the instrumentals over a course of five weeks.

Due to being very busy with their other projects, the
musicians put the recordings on a hiatus which would take
almost one and a half year, unexpectedly.
