imat This is honestly my introduction to the band, which I suppose I can thank Spotify for recommending. The tone of the tracks, while clearly in the metal realm, are quite diverse, from nearly bluesy, to punk-inflected, to softly melancholic. The keys and female guest vocals are fantastic spice on a memorable dark rock album rife with great riffs and delicious gravelly vocals. I will definitely check out more by Sarke. Favorite track: Mausoleum.

Björnen Great production on this album!

Nocturno Cultos vocals are really grim. A few songs stand out for me - Mausoleum, The Endless Wait and Rebellious Bastard. Favorite track: Rebellious Bastard.

vncntkdl Just recently discovered Sarke's brand of hard-hitting Black'n'Roll topped with Nocturno's vocals, can't complain! Hard to pick a favorite song, it's a very good album as a whole. Favorite track: Ties Of Blood.

Ghost War 03:20
Lunacy Crawling upon me Outcast Of society Forsaken By the majority Down With primacy My time is now I am the commander No one can see My time is now I am the destroyer In a ghost war Madness Growing inside me Shadows Surrounding me Anger Relieves me Visions To dominate
You can see the shadow Before blowing out the light You can see a darken moon Blocking all the sight You can see the torches And everyone in despair They are gathered in hundreds For their feeble prayers Do you hear the echo From the ancient crucifix Do you hear a voice A revelation from the dead Do you hear the echo From the ancient crucifix The anger of the gods Still rolling heads Swarming round in circles Grasping for the end Parasites will follow This everlasting flow Burning all the witches In the name of the cross Beheading the philosopher To fulfill the loss
Mausoleum 05:33
I see the crooked tree And the frozen branches I can feel them Crawling down my spine I want to smell the weed And taste the sigarette I want to drink wine In the mausoleum Give me the hammer Give me the saw So I can build my shrine Turn off the light And walk away So I can pretend I`m not alive I can see the chapel Up on the high throne Craving my submission I will not undertake Save the pity and the grief And the unspoken words I will have my peace In the mausoleum
She was so prudent In her earlier days Innocent in her approach Youthful with a curious mind Sending off the signals Far into the dark So nervously in her chair She is waiting for a glint of light Gazing into the unknown Into the black emptiness Alone in silent hours As age passing by Hour become days become years Grey hair count the days Oh..I will miss the green meadows And not this rugged table The wood is burnt out The coffee is cold The endless wait Has left her dry
Another fist in the face Another black eye monday Every day is the same Every day is a shame Come and see what I see Will you try to be me I can promise you nothing Nothing good will it be Do you see me crumble Do you see me fade Do you see the hardness Do you see the loss Ties of blood Keeps my fear awake Ties of blood Takes my soul away Bring me the pain Bring me the violence Show me the chain In those befouled hands Come and see the chaos Come and see the mess I can promise you nothing Nothing good will it be
I can see the future, In the flames I can see the past, In the flames I can see the hatred, In the flames I can see you disappear, In the flames Find the rebel, Find the mark Find the wanderer, In the dark You can choose, But I decide The gate is open, Walk inside My heart is warm, Just as yours My skin is melting, Just as yours Feel the fire, Feel the flood Feed my hunger, With your blood I can see the torment, In the flames I can see your soul, In the flames See the fated, See the cursed Find the path, through the dark Behind the wall The birds are free In the mountains And by the sea
A black and white poster Hanging on the wall Young naked girls Laying on the floor Bruised up and wasted Beating down the door Feeding the anger Feeding the core Rebellious bastard Bitter, fierce and restless Rebellious bastard Cold and relentless I`m a weasel I don`t care I live my life Like an agitator When darkness comes I light the fire Looking for trouble Looking for a blast I can see you on the other side Drinking champagne in your Jaguar I will shatter all your hopes and dreams I will shut your mouth and make you scream
Cribs Hand 05:59
My guardian angel has long abandoned me For the gods have called my name Dark days are what awaits me My time has now come to an end Black birds fly silently over me The clouds slide slowly down to the ground The mist is like a thick rug The rain makes the ground heavy and dark Cribs hand has come to me To drag me down into dark Deep down to and endless sea My memories will be washed away My existence will slowly rot When the books have crumbled away Then there is nothing left Nobody will remember, no thoughts, nothing


With the legends Sarke and Nocturno Culto in the line-up, a discography of worldwide praised albums and an ever growing and evolving grim, dark and soothing sound, the next SARKE album “Gastwerso” is yet another great piece of icy and haunting black metal.

Sarke formed in 2008 when Thomas "Sarke" Bergli (Khold, Tulus) decided to make a solo album, one year later the debut album was released via Indie Recordings, and Sarke had teamed up with keyboardist Anders Hunstad and Ted "Nocturno Culto" Skjellum (Darkthrone, ex-Satyricon) on vocals. The debut album Vorunah resulted in several festival appearances such as Wacken Open Air (with the guest appearance of Thomas Gabriel Fischer), Inferno Festival, Hole in the Sky, Party.San Open Air, Brutal Assault and Ragnarök Festival.

After the flying start, Sarke continued to take the listener on a journey through dark and soothing soundscapes inspired by legends like Mayhem, Slayer, Darkthrone, Celtic Frost, Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Death, Motorhead and Kreator. With their 5 full lengths in the discography, Sarke has been praised repeatedly in press and by fans worldwide.

On the coming album “Gastwerso” you can still hear the musical tree of SARKE continuing to grow with new branches. New challenging riffs, melodic side roads, beautiful, dark, raw and groovy. Like on all albums before, 70’s rockhead Lars Erik Westby has been in charge of the production. Gastwerso was recorded and mixed at H-10 Production in Oslo, Norway.
