Vondur  


One of the most bizarro black metal bands ever, Vondur was a short-lived project featured the pair of All and It, who were also the core of Ophthalamia and Abruptum. Even without hearing a single note, there are several clues as to how warped these guys were, such as featuring Darth Vader one one album cover, covering an Elvis song on another, and so forth. And then there's the music. Their only full-length album, Stridsyfirlysing, is just plain strange, featuring raw, primitive old-style black metal with a buzzy guitar tone and guttural vocals (apparently singing in Icelandic?), alongside assorted keyboard interludes and general weirdness. Then came the EP, The Galactic Rock'n'Roll Empire, featuring strange cover versions (Elvis and Motley Crue!) and more strangeness. Some have written that Vondur was all about making fun of the serious black metal scene, and it's hard to tell if this is true or not, though it does make some sense. As with any left-field band, Vondur has its small core of followers amongst a larger set of people who just aren't going to comprehend them. An oddity to say the least. The duo later retired from the music scene, with It eventually moving on to the quite different 8thSin.
