Vardoger - Help ordering vinyl and contacting the band

Post by jaydeecrawson on Mon Oct 08, 2018 4:36 pm

Guys,

Please help me out here. I tried to order the Vardoger "Ghost Notes" vinyl from their website and my payment was refunded.

Does any one know where I can order this because I'm not having much luck AT ALL from their Facebook page or website.

Does any one here own the LP and can you tell me where you got it from? I'm pretty desperate here....

Nordic Mission's got it and they're reliable.

This is a fantastic album by the way.  Since it was released, it has been on pretty regular rotation for me.

Sure thing!  I've ordered from NM numerous times and they've always been great.  The shipping rates from Norway are a drag, but in this case you'd get that from the band directly as well.

so are they still active or not?

their guitarist was originally helping me order the vinyl then he dropped off the face of the earth and won't reply to email or FB messages

since then, the ordering link has been removed from their website

and yes shipping from nordic mission is $$$

I'm not sure about how active they are...  I remember seeing an announcement on FB about one of their members leaving the band but don't recall anything about replacements or such.

Keep in mind that there was literally 12 years between their EP and full length so "active" is a relative term hahaha.

The music and death vocals on this are perfection.  But the occasional clean whiny prog vocals ruin the whole thing for me...like nails on a chalkboard.  I wish bands would offer "extreme/no clean vocals" and "clean vocal" versions like the clean/explicit releases that major labels do!  Ha.  I'd be able to buy so much more music....

The female clean vocals do take a little getting used to... but without them I don't think I'd love this album nearly as much as I do.  They give the album this clean, upbeat, catchy feel in contrast to the harsher aspects which makes it pretty unique.  And because they're not the typical operatic style, Ghost Notes doesn't tread into the cliche "beauty and the beast" waters that's so overdone.  I wouldn't change a thing.  My only gripe would be that all the songs are pretty similar and it wouldn't have hurt to have had a few faster and/or slower songs in the mix.

Are they female?  I thought it was a dude.  Either way, can't take 'em.  I wish I could, and glad others like yourself can!

Ha, yeah they're not the most feminine sounding [no offense to the singer if you're reading] but it is a woman singing.  Like I said, it did take me a little while to get used to her vocals, but now I really can't imagine the album sounding any other way.  Eh, maybe they'll grow on ya.  Smile

True, though I just assumed he meant the female vocals since the clean male vocals are petty sparse, relatively.

I guess you're right. BTW I saw them l live two years ago. Then the female singer (Johanne) did all the clean vocals. Knut Anders Sørum is a little to busy with his own career: https://youtu.be/SialM2WoAmk

The video works for me in the US.  Smile  Wow, he's quite eclectic in his musical abilities!  But I think I'll stick to his metal stuff...   Razz

I actually wish he would sing like that over metal.

I'm hoping he brings some of this to the next Fleshkiller.

As for the Vardoger, it's got some incredible songs on it! I love the female vocals. They add an incredible range of emotion to it that really makes it something extraordinary. Never heard anything like it. 

It reminds me of a lot of the mid-90's bands who had transitional albums in the doom, death and gothic metal genres. They'd make an album that truly stood out in a unique way like Tiamat "Wildhoney," Moonspell "Wolfheart," Therion "Theli," Paradise Lost "Draconian Times" Anathema "Eternity" and then struggle as to where to go in the aftermath. It will be hard to follow up Ghost Notes.

Well this answers why you had troubles with the webstore...  Sad Sad Sad

I'm glad I finally found a physical copy of it last year. Surely all physical copies will disappear in the next year or so. Being self-financed offers great freedom but when people who want your material can't even find it, it makes sense that you'd have a tough time reaching the rest of the scene. It had to be tough to pull it all together.

Like they said, I'm glad we at least got Ghost Notes.

I had also replied to that status and asked where physical copies could be purchased.  This was the response:

"We don’t know yet. There are a limited amount of what we have left to share of CD’s and LP’s. But we well get the small amount that’s left out there somehow"
