The albums that were released with Nidhogg are known as Ildjarn-Nidhogg.
Samoth was the session vocalist for the '92 demo, and Ihsahn, for the '93 demo. Both of them played with Ildjarn in Thou Shalt Suffer.
Some Ildjarn albums are keyboard-only.
Most Ildjarn material was recorded in the first half of the Nineties; the Hardangervidda ambient project (featuring Nidhogg) is the very last work recorded by the artist. However, demand from fans led to Ildjarn's decision to make the recordings from his vault available, as well as repressing most of his discography. The ``Ildjarn Is Dead`` double album should seal Ildjarn's discographic legacy.
Contrary to popular belief, most Ildjarn albums feature real live drums; on the other hand, the Ildjarn-Nidhogg Metal recordings were done with programmed drums.
