Ildjarn was a black metal project from Norway that formed in 1991. 
The band recorded music until 1997 but did not officially end until 2005. 
The man behind Ildjarn was Vidar "Ildjarn" Våer (former member of Thou Shalt Suffer and Sort Vokter), 
although some releases were collaborations with a musician known as Nidhogg.
Those releases are known as Ildjarn - Nidhogg
Ildjarn's music was a very simple and "lo-fi" brand of  raw black metal,
composed of basic drum patterns and a couple of riffs. 
Their style has been compared to hardcore punk in its simplistic ferocity and short song lengths.
Some Ildjarn albums are devoted to ambient suites for electronic keyboards.
The related band Sort Vokter that consisted of Ildjarn, Nidhogg and two other members 
known as Tvigygre and Heiinghund, released only one album in 1996 called "Folkloric Necro Metal".
