Musician in Iceland

Listen to my music

Dynfari plays post-rock and black metal influenced music. Since its formation as a duo in 2010 this now fully formed Icelandic band has made four albums. Armed with candlelight and incense, the band's hypnotizing live performances elevate all senses into another world.

* Sem Skugginn (2012)
[Code666 Records/Aural Music]

A highly dynamic and diverse concept album touching on the subject of humanity’s decline and human depravity in relation to the striking contrasts between how humanity is but a brief moment in history compared to the eternity that is the age of the universe. The diversity is personified with ambient sounds followed by blast beats, fast tempos by slow tempos, loudness by quiet and melancholy by hope…
