Sver - Fryd (Folkhall Records)

Star rating: 
3

Made up of both Norwegian and Swedish musicians, the five-piece Sver take their collective musical traditions as a basis and inject their own compositions with some of the vitality inherent in their own indigenous music. The sound of the hardanger fiddle is particularly seductive and draws the listener immediately in. The eleven instrumental pieces invite you to dance with all the energy of a late night party, with the possible exception of the band's tribute to the Shetland Folk Festival, a tune they named Total Carnage. There's no doubting the quintet's musical ability; an album of virtuosity and style.
