Storm was a Norwegian Viking metal band that originally included Fenriz of Darkthrone and Satyr of Satyricon. Later on, Kari Rueslåtten, formerly of the band The 3rd and the Mortal, also joined them on vocals. The project only released one album, titled Nordavind, released in 1995, which makes them among the first viking and folk metal bands.

History[edit]

Split[edit]

After the recording of the one and only album, Kari Rueslåtten stated in the Norwegian music newspaper Puls that she would join the band if there were no extreme lyrics in the songs. But then she felt betrayed by Satyr and Fenriz, because Satyr wrote a new end to the song "Oppi fjellet," which contained strongly anti-Christian lyrics. According to Kari:

As a reaction to Rueslåtten's publicly aired regrets over her involvement with Storm, Satyr stated in an interview:[1]

Kari Rueslåtten has gone on to have a solo career and Satyr and Fenriz have pursued their other musical projects.
