HARDINGROCK is a collaboration between the musicians Starofash (Heidi Solberg Tveitan), Ihsahn (Vegard Tveitan) and Grimen (the fiddler Knut Buen). Set for release in June 2007, the album Grimen presents folk tunes on the Norwegian national instrument, Harding fiddle, text and melodies based on Norwegian mythical tradition, arranged and recomposed in modern form with influences from heavy metal and classically inspired electronica. This is an experimental project where folk tunes are thematically broken down and expressed in a new rhythmic and harmonic form with guitars, piano, keyboards, percussion, recitation and song.
