Isengard was the solo-project started in 1989 by Fenriz - one the key driving forces behind Norwegian legends Darkthrone - because he had many musical ideas to explore that didn't strictly fit in with the style and music of Darkthrone. Under the Isengard moniker, Fenriz released 2 albums, ?Vinterskugge_ & ?H'stm_rke_.
?Vinterskugge_ consists of 3 separate recordings made between 1989 & 1993, and contains a whole multitude of styles, including doom, rock, folk, death, black & viking metal. ?Vinterskugge_ also demonstrated Fenriz's breadth of vocal styles, lending an epic edge to many of the tracks.
The album contains 3 chapters. The first, ?Vanderen_, features the most recent tracks, from 1993. The second part comprises of ?Spectres Over Gorgoroth_, an early Isengard recording from 1989, while chapter 3 features tracks from 1991, called ?Horizons_.
