Nightshade #51 - ALVAR - A Short Sharp Taste Ov Distress

Alvar: a room completely dark, pulsing. 2 shadows. Thrilling rhythms, furious loops and a feeling of total takeover of your soul.

Alvar is a Swedish duo composed of married couple simply known as J&J, dedicated to a mixture of raw EBM, techno, industrial, rhythmic noise and much more, all encompassed by a minimal ad austere aesthetic and inspired by deserted places, forgotten houses and old legends from Öland (an island and a province of Sweden).
