ALVHEIM originates in 2005. On that spring time in small southern town Sochi in frontier areas of Russia formed the band, which consisted of: Vetos - vocals, Alvar - guitars, Tomas - drums. And began the work on composing of the first songs and searching of their own style and sound. On the same time the name ALVHEIM was borned. Alvar: "The name Alvheim was taken from the ancient scandinavian mythology. ALVHEIM means "the land of elves". It put down good in our music and lyrics because we played old-school norwegian Black Metal." But after 2 months the band was miscarryed and it disintegrated because of differentiated priorityes in music of the each participant of band.
On the end of 2007 ALVHEIM reborns under the command of Alvar and acquires status of one man band project. Alvar: "The decision to continue personal music activity in such style as Black Metal wasn't casual. Desintegration of band not strongly influenced on music but took place great variations in lyrics. I began to write lyrics on Norwegian in which traces the pagan subjects and an epoch of Vikings." There were an intensive works on composing of the new material during half-year and in the middle of summer 2008 the first EP called "I Et Fjort Fortid" (nor. - "In Far Past") was recorded. Alvar: "This EP is a cold Scandinavian old school Black Metal which, unfortunately, remains a little now but fans of such music always were, is and will be."
