Atvar (AKA Rauta) is a seriously-talented individual. He’s the driving force behind a number of wonderful Black Metal acts, each with their own unique sound. He must possess a truly great mind to consistently deliver on all of these projects over and over again.
Venus Star is one of many where he’s the sole member and ‘The Knot Will Not’ is this entity’s fourth – and best – full-length, released once more on Kuunpalvelus, his own label. Massive kudos to the magnificent, supremely-talented Finn, particularly for the inspirational closer, ‘Ride Forth, Beast Torch, Beyond the Beyond’.
