Slim Vic – Mörkrets Narr

The Fool of Darkness (Mörkrets Narr) steps into your consciousness, he feels your fear and happiness and reflects it all back in an endless flow of soundtracks. From the abyss of anxiety to the hopeful joy. The cinematic soundworlds capture or intimidate the listener into a deep-seated listening session. With Slim Vic’s 3rd solo album, we get a metamorphosis of emotional states, including two collaborations with frequent musical partners Oestergaards (Dovle Records) and Plasmafuse (Fierce Transmission).

“In one respect, the album can be placed in a musical variant of the literary genre Scandinavian Noir; a dark and almost objective style with layers upon layers of cinematic content. It is music where the listener gets to think – and feel – themself. Very little is formatted and molded in this form of ambient, although at times it can be perceived as realistic and precise without unnecessary musical sprinkling.” /Mikael Strömberg

Slim Vic - Mörkrets Narr


Side-Line Reviews
“The album is taking off in an extremely dark and frightening way. Low, vibrating sound waves mixed with icy Electronics and Noise effects hold your attention while stimulating your imagination. Quite progressively the second part of the work moves into more Experimental collages, but still revealing a few more relaxing passages. One of the tracks even features Ethereal, female vocals.”

Vital Weekly
“Many songs here have a creepy, uneasy feeling, obviously of the variety that I enjoy. It is hard to say what kind of instruments Slim Vic uses, apart from a more general ‘electronics, synthesizers and effects’ and maybe some tormented voices. “

“Mörkrets Narr” features an incredibly heavy sound, one where Slim Vic requires the listener to absolutely surrender to the harsh effects.

Shawn Reynaldo, First Floor #101
“A highlight of the new Mörkrets Narr LP, “Fundament (Part 2)” is a stirring epic from Swedish producers Slim Vic and Plasmafuse. Taking the idea of “slow burn” to its extreme, the 11-plus-minute song offers little more than drone and moody chords during its opening half, but once a plaintive, siren-like female vocal enters the mix about halfway through, the music’s emotional register spikes significantly, conjuring memories of classic 4AD acts like Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil.”

Radio Nacional de España – RNE 3 Atmosfera – 01.05.2022
“Hoy el sueco abre nuestra Atmósfera con su entrega “MörkretsNarr” un trabajo que entra en tu conciencia, siente tu miedo y felicidad y los refleja todo en un flujo interminable de bandas sonoras.”
