Vestige of Virtue is a trio consisting of Kjetil Ottersen, Frode Forsmo and Shaun Winter Taylor-Steels. Based in a melancholic core of gothic doom metal, the debut album Sophia derives from styles of both contemporary and archaic origin as it extends into chamber music, liturgical passages, movements inspired by Viennese classicism and occasional elements of musique concrète. The aim being a dialogue between the modest and the dramatic; the mellow and the powerful; an interplay led by Forsmo's salient baritone.
