Blackened Post-Metal Gang ARV Now Streaming New Song FURY From Upcoming New EP: Varmint

ARV: 'Fury' Video From Oslo Based Blackened Post-Metal Gang Now Streaming; 'Varmint' EP Set For Release March 17th through VINTER RECORDS. Watch the 'Fury' Video below

Comments the band: "«Varmint» is an unpleasant convergence of a destructive past, the fury of now, and the future to come. The music itself is a reflection of the usual trajectory of an unrested mind in a life of struggle."

The Oslo underground is as thriving as ever, even during the recent pandemic. One of the better new outlets, as a result of this, is ARV.

The post-metal five-piece is going at it full throttle and has made its mark in the local live scene over past year, most recently leaving everyone in awe after their intense and pummeling live offering at Høstsabbat in Oslo.

They clearly have their minds set on not paving their way silently.

ARV caters to lovers of intensifying chugs, caustic screams and creative drum patterns, all seamlessly combined with expansive ambience and more mellow, cinematic passages. The songwriting and muscianship in this band is something else, and to top this off, ARV is fronted by legendary ex-Kollwitz singer Frederik Hillestad, always serving the audience the most ferocious vocals with a stage presence unmatched.

Early 2023 will see the first physical release from ARV, and a limited 7» inch is on its way via VINTER RECORDS. Those of you fortunate enough to have witnessed this entity live, know they are a sleeping giant, shining light in the darkest of nights - and their recorded output is no different.

ARV is here to destroy, none prisoners taken.

ARV is:

Frederik Hillestad: Vocals
Jens Hovden Storaker: Bass
Marius Bowitz: Guitar
Christian Nordheim: Guitar
Bjarne Burger Olafsen: Drums
