Swarms is Kim Sølve, a visual artist behind acclaimed artwork for artists such as Mayhem, Darkthrone, Manes, DHG, Solefald, Ved Buens Ende, Arcturus, She Said Destroy, Nocturno Culto's The Misanthrope DVD and Ulver, paired with the very unorthodox bass player Petter Berntsen (Virus, Audiopain). Together they brush off the conventions of genre and subculture looking for pre-sound and pre-silence, painting a truly visual sound landscape, putting dreams and fears into a musical body and producing the recently released "The Silver Hour" (Vendlus Records). The title refers to the twilight, the time of in-between.
The recordings for "The Silver Hour" were made visiting remote and abandoned places where nature has reclaimed what once was human and trivial and made it obsolete. Guest contributors include Zweizz and Babyflesh.
