Speaking of. This new record by Vattnet Viskar is fantastic. From a Pitchfork interview by Brandon Stosuy:
Vattnet Viskar is Swedish for “The Water Whispers.” You’re from New Hampshire. How’d you come up with the name?
Chris Alfieri: Originally, the concept of the band was just [vocalist] Nick [Thornbur] and myself. We started by recording parts and emailing them back and forth. He originally had a lyrical idea of a cult gathering around a body of water that summoned its dissenters to drown themselves. As an homage to the Swedish metal we all love, we named this idea Vattnet Viskar. Eventually it just became the band name. This took on a more organic approach as [drummer] Matt [St. Jean] and [bassist] Alan [Sobodacha] came into the picture, and we all realized that we shared mostly the same environmental beliefs. Currently, I interpret our name to signify the environment’s constant passive reminder that we’re slowly destroying it.
