1998 release. "Since the glorydays of A-ha, Magne Furuholmen has established himself as a respected painter and composer of filmmusic. Kjetil Bjerkestrand is also a famous film composer in Norway, as well as being a composer, arranger and producer for several Norwegian and international artists. The enigmatic Swedish singer Freddie Wadling is best known for his work in groups such as the much acclaimed Flesh Quartet and Blue For Two. Here they team up for the music to the dark and unsettling Norwegian feature film 1732 Høtten ('Bloody Angels'). Several hours of studio jamming, fractured ideas, sketches and synth experiments in addition to a couple of 'real' songs has been edited down to make Hermetic an album in its own right, rather than being a traditional soundtrack album. In fact, most of the music here is not even in the film, but all through it there is a strong feeling of detachment and things falling apart, just as in the film."
