Pelagic Records is pleased to welcome SÂVER — a new project featuring Ole Christian Helstad, Ole Ulvik Rokseth, and Markus Støle of Norway doom outfits Tombstones and Hymn — to their expanding roster of engrossing bands.
“The idea of starting SÂVER was a consequence of ending something,” comments Helstad. “In the beginning, it was a good mix of loss, in a way, and the excitement of a blank canvas. In hindsight, we shared a feeling of longing for an escape, getting away from the known, and immersing ourselves into something completely different… which is scary and exciting at the same time. It mirrors the band both in a literary sense, as well as the general mood during the writing process.
Self-described as, “heavy, spaced out darkness out of Oslo,” SÂVER’s debut album, They Came With Sunlight, will see release in early 2019. An album of sublime heaviness, shimmering moogs, fiery vocals, and a gnarly bass tone, fans of bands like Breach, The Old Wind, and Cult Of Luna, pay heed.
