    Drottnar is a technical, experimental, and progressive extreme metal band from Fredrikstad, Norway. They formed in 1996 playing death-doom and viking metal. Drottnar has played at notable festivals such as Sweden's Endtime Fest, Norway's Nordic Fest, Switzerland's Elements of Rock, Finland's Immortal Metal Fest and United Kingdom's Destruction Fest and they frequently play concerts throughout Europe. In November 2006, the Drottnar members played as session musicians for the one-man unblack metal pioneer group Horde at Nordic Fest. The members covered their faces in order to not be recognized and to maintain the "myth" of Horde. They played again with Horde on April 17, 2010 at Immortal Metal Fest in Finland.

    The band has released two albums, Spiritual Battle (2000) and Welterwerk (2006), and an EP titled Anamorphosis (2003).

    While the band started out playing death-doom and folk influenced Viking (un)black metal, Drottnar's music since 2003's Anamorphosis EP is describable as modern black metal. The style is more technical and chaotíc than melodic, and emphasizes on nihilistic, cold atmosphere.

    In the beginning the band's lyrics dealt with Christianity with a brutal and extreme approach: The lyrics on the album Spiritual Battle were inspired by the Book of Revelation and dealt mostly with the battle ravaging the spiritual world. The band members have said "The Norwegian black metal scene does not influence our lyrics, but the lyrics are still written in a black metal way, fitting our music well." Currently the lyrics incorporate politics and philosophy, for example Latin phrases such as "ad hoc" or "sine qua non"

    Drottnar's early live shows incorporated flashing strobes, thick smoke and cold or dark light show. They also used white candles on stage, "creating a bit mystic and emotional effect."

    Currently Drottnar has had a special feature for several years, the use of Czech or "Soviet" style elements: the song titles and lyrics contain Soviet-sounding words and metaphors, some songs contain samples of radio play or radio communication elements involved in the 20th century, and at concerts all band members use Soviet or "DDR" type uniforms. They still use stroboflashes at their concerts. The vocalist Sven-Erik Lind typically uses effects such as megaphones to create a militant atmosphere.

    Drottnar is the plural of an Icelandic word for master, ruler or king, often applied to Jesus Christ. Originally adopting a more mystic Viking image, the band is currently known for their peculiar political thematics and live shows where they use military uniforms reminiscent of the Russian style.
