Biography

Isengard was the solo-project started in 1989 by Fenriz - one the key driving forces behind Norwegian legends Darkthrone - because he had many musical ideas to explore that didn't strictly fit in with the style and music of Darkthrone. Under the Isengard moniker, Fenriz released 2 albums, ‘Vinterskugge’ & ‘Høstmørke’, with all composition, performing & recording/mixing from Fenriz himself. 

‘Vinterskugge’ consisted of 3 separate recordings made between 1989 & 1993, and contained a whole multitude of styles, including doom, rock, folk, death, black & viking metal. ‘Vinterskugge’ also demonstrated Fenriz’s breadth of vocal styles, lending an epic edge to many of the tracks. This was followed by ‘Høstmørke’ in 1995, a continuation of the viking metal songs, plus black metal tracks.
