Shame is Just a Word is infused with tastes of flesh, Satan and misanthropy! Dive into Svarttjern’s dungeon of shame and embrace the madness!
“The stars have aligned. The planets are in place. Forget your joy and embrace your fear. The new Svarttjern album is here. Dive into Svarttjern’s basement of lust and rust! Ride the fleshtrain, bathe in the cesspool of fat, gurgle the lube or let it soak. Show your true self and shake off your invisibility cloak. Embrace your shame. Shame is just a word.”

“Sharing members of Carpathian Forest, Svarttjern combine blood stained fists to clobber the feeble and unworthy.”
“Svarttjern, a well-respected part of the True Norwegian Black Metal collective, is a conglomeration of Carpathian Forest and Ragnarok members, and that’s exactly what you can expect in terms of sound: the former’s trashiness married to the latter’s thrashiness.”
