Álfheimr Profile

About Alfheimr... I'm Madison from Álfheimr, and this is where I put my music. The name of this project is explained simply enough. I wanted a name that came from mythology; if I had made a power metal band it would have been called Valhalla, because that's totally badass. But it's not metal, it's softer and calmer. Heaven was kind of lame, I think, and so it's Álfheimr.

At the expense of sounding like a loser, I wanted to do something a little different from normal post-rock. I wanted a different sound, and different themes; I've made explicitly sure to not mention the ocean or snow in any of my song titles thus far. A few of my favorite artists, who influence me not just in music but in everything I do. [ Sigur Ros ] ~ [ Radiohead ] ~ [ Godspeed You! Black Emperor ] ~ [ Bjork ] ~ [ Pink Floyd ] ~ [ John Cage ] ~ [ Aphex Twin ] ~ [ Phillip Glass ] ~ [ 65daysofstatic ] ~ [ Sylvain Chauveau ] and the list goes on.

What Allows Us To Endure  is an eight track power kit that brings a sensual exploration in the vivid world of experimental music. Leave alone the fact that the album holds the perfect balance between minimalistic noises and swirling distortions. [ What Allows Us To Endure ] is more of a story telling album. The kind of music you would usually lay back and setting your mind completely free. While the album drives you to a peaceful mood on most part it also takes on different turns allowing one to drift back and forth in slow motion while at the same time picturing images and sceneries.

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
