Hailing from the remote Westfjords of Iceland, Ragnar Zolberg has been writing and releasing heavy music for 20 years.
His first full project (aged 13) was with his hard rock band Sign. They received Icelandic Music Award nominations and a gold disc in the UK, and shared stages with his heroes KISS and Skid Row. More recently, he’s played and written around the world as a key songwriter-guitarist with Swedish prog-metallers Pain of Salvation. Ragnar has also worked with the likes of Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós), Mark Plati (David Bowie), and Earl Slick (John Lennon) and he’s written solo albums all along the way.
During his last tour with Pain of Salvation, Ragnar spent his downtime writing new material. As usual he was writing for himself and drawing its roots from traditional Icelandic music and folklore as well as heavy metal and romantic classical music. Produced by renowned Swedish metal producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Behemoth), the new album, Sonr Ravns sees Ragnar’s signature wailing vocals mixed with deep beats and gentleness in a brooding and organic mix of melody, heaviness, and folk.
