WARDRUNA Release New Single on iTunes

Viking neofolk act WARDRUNA released the first single, Fehu, from their upcoming album Yggdrasil exclusively through iTunes. The album will be the band’s second release in the planned Runaljod trilogy, a musical interpretation of the runes of the elder futhark. Yggradsil will be released on April 2 in U.S., March 15 in Norway, and March 25 throughout mainland Europe.

Yggdrasil pre-order packages available now

In addition to launching the aforementioned single, the band – which consists of multi-instrumentalist Kvitrafn, Gaahl (God Seed, ex-Gorgoroth), and Linda Fay Hella – also unveiled pre-order packages for their upcoming album, available through Indie Recording’s webstore by clicking HERE. Yggdrasil will be available as a regular jewel case CD, but also as a limited edition digibook (as pictured above) including a specially designed bronze necklace and a 32-page booklet with extra artwork, translated lyrics and additional text on the Runes concept.

Kvitrafn added,

“The design of the necklace is a combination of the Sun-wheel representing the turning bane of the sun and the mythological serpent Jörmungandr that circles the earth and holds it together.”

The album was recorded mainly in outdoor settings with the use of ancient Nordic instruments (deer-hide frame drums, mouth harp, clove and hoof rattles from deer and goats, bone flutes, goat and cow horns) and features guest appearances by renowned Icelandic composer Himlar Örn Hilmarsson and leading rímur singer Steindór Andersen. Preview the first four tracks of the album with exclusive commentary by Kvitrafn and Gaahl on the band’s YouTube channel HERE.

Watch the Video

Yggdrasil is the second release in the band’s Runaljod trilogy, which interprets the runes of the elder futhark. Much like the first album in the series, gap var Ginnunga, the recording took place at locations relevant to the different runes using outdoor locations along with old and historical instruments such as deer-hide frame drums, mouth harp, clove and hoof rattles from deer and goats, bone flutes, goat and cow horns, Hardanger fiddle and bowed lyres.

VIKING NEO-FOLK ACT WARDRUNA REVEAL ALBUM TEASER VIDEO

 

Kvitrafn comments,

“Although the instruments are more or less the same as on gap var Ginnunga, the nature of the runes featured on Yggdrasil have naturally made it a very different album.”

WARDRUNA will make their American debut at the pagan/neo-folk/doom-focused Stella Natura Festival in California’s Tahoe National Forest later this year. Additionally, the band will appear at the annual Inferno Festival in Switzerland where they will share the stage alongside acts including Anaal Nathrakh, Primoridial, Dark Funeral, My Dying Bride and Aura Noir.
