It`s aggressive rock, borderline metal and dangerously catchy! The Black Metal references are there, but first and foremost they`re a modern rock band. Genres melt together as never before these days, and so seems to be the case with Djerv as well.
Djerv entered the international rock and metal-scene in 2011 with a debut record that still impress in 2019. Engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames) and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, No Doubt) the album received great reviews with 9/10 in Sweden Rock Magazine, and Rock Tribune. The metal bible Metal Hammer UK gave it a solid 8/10 and said:
“Agnete Kjølsrud’s the star of the show, her vocals could take paint off your dad’s car!”
Terrorizer Magazine followed suit and said:
“Djerv are onto something big with their clever combination of hard rock and black metal… A talented band that are only just getting started”
And they were right. After only two days in sale the debut album from the Norwegian band Djerv crashed into the official Norwegian sales charts at an impressive # 8. They were also the highest newcomer and # 3 on Norwegian Artist Charts.
