A side project for Bewitched vocalist/guitarist Marcus E. Norman, Sweden’s Old Wisdom (originally simply plain Old, but that name had been taken by way of a Norwegian music group) bucked the normal developments of Scandinavian loss of life/black metal making use of their extremely melodic, relatively gradual and haunting compositions. Shaped in 1992, the music group also highlighted guitarist Andreas Nilsson, bassist Frederik Jacobson key pad participant Jens Ryden and drummer Ulf and released their initial demos “In the attention from the Serpent” and “Through Streams from the Eternal Blackness” quickly thereafter. Enthusiastic about areas of Viking background and mythology, Old Wisdom’s atmospheric debut For Snow Covered the Northland finally noticed the light of time in 1996 (though it turned out recorded 2 yrs earlier). At that time, Norman was the only real remaining first member, and made a decision to retain complete control of the music group from that time forward, you start with 1997’s The Contacting and onwards with 2000’s …And the CONDITION of Light Bled. A follow-up, tentatively entitled General Annihilation happens to be in the functions and planned for discharge in past due 2002.
