‘Fuck Varg’ is Varg2TM–the artist formerly known as Varg–at his most chaotic and ornate. Streamlining a plethora of techniques and motifs into his inimitable and fearless style, there’s reckless charm and misanthropy turbulently sequenced to perfection. The EP comes with baggage. The German metal band Varg issued a cease and desist letter earlier in the year to the artist now known as Varg2(TM).
It is an obvious enough move for a band that cites pagans as an influence and theme, but it is a move that nevertheless affirmed a preference for ceasing to exist. Charting a route through the cybergothic psychedelia of the opening track, to the wistful anthemic charge of ‘Thirst (Dressed in Nothing But UV Paint and Biodegradable Glitter)’, and finally landing on the peak dead-eyed sermon of ‘Parasites (Honest Music for Dishonest People) ft. G19’, the digital EP’s presentation rounds off on a lean and severe remix from VTSS. It’s an EP of restlessness, ruins, and ecstatic keyboard mashing because there’s not an emoji that’s demonic enough.
