Valdur and Urgehal are perhaps the best guardians today of the Norwegian black metal sound. With Urgehal, that’s logical – they’re Norwegian. With Valdur, it’s also logical, even though they’re from California. That’s because Thor is Norwegian. How he ended up in Mammoth Lakes, CA is a mystery to me. Evidently one day he got off the bus there and set about starting a black metal band. Mammoth Lakes has about 5,000 people. It’s so small that locals, including Thor, will see any live music there. Beggars can’t be choosers. Yet Thor found musicians to play black metal – and they’re damn good.
