Well, apparently by creating an album that takes epicness to new levels. It all begins calm and drony with the intro 'Et Løfte I Fall' before 'Og Ny Skog Bæres Frem' opens all registers. With enigmatic post rock soundscapes and a raw blast of energy coming from the drums, this thing definitely kicks off in style. Soon into the record I'm reminded of a mix between A Swarm Of the Sun, Tiny Fingers and 65DaysOfStatic, something which I guess is not bad. Besides, they band simply pushes that drive forward in 'Fra Dypet Under Stenen'.
By now I'm thinking, "this kind of post rock can only be made in Norway". I mean, there is hardly a trace of black metal to be found here but somehow the music on 'Myre' carries a similar atmosphere, one of elaborate snowy mountains and mysterious forests. 'Hviler Bekkenes Sang', a brilliant ambient breather perfectly illustrates that. I see that I'm once again going into a song-by-song thing so I'll skip a few tracks. I mean, I have to leave some of the discovery up to you. All I'm going to say is that, like most of this album, 'Den Gamles Stemme Brister' is an absolute post rock masterpiece.
And I'll end my review like I started it, reminiscing about Dunk! festival. On the table in front of me is a paper with all kinds of band written on it. It's my preparation for my "nostradamic Dunk! preview". I think I'm going to add Spurv to that list. I'm definitely going to add Spurv to that list...
