The Old Gods Are Watching

Draugablíkk invites you on a musical journey through the ancient landscapes of Scandinavia and onto the Great Steppe. Guided by the watchful gaze of the Old Gods, we seamlessly blend the rich tapestry of Nordic folk with the shamanic song traditions of Serkland, a historical region east of Scandinavia and Finland.

The world of our ancestors was danger, intrigue, and blood feud. They lived in a world of wonder and supernatural realities now long forgotten. Draugablíkk seeks to rediscover the past — of their past, and to unearth long-lost, invaluable knowledge from a time when only the brave survived — and only those of deep lore prospered. The mystery of the divine spark awaits us.

Our songs echo the distant past, from the Scythians — nomadic warriors renowned for their horseback archery and rich culture — to the fall of Rome and the rise of the Merovingian and Vendel eras, precursors to the Viking Age.

Featuring haunting melodies from the “talharpa” horsehair lyre and bukkehorn, our music intertwines with evocative sounds from the Steppe, such as the saz and tsuur. This fusion creates a unique, shamanic energy where the traditions of Scandinavia and the East converge.

Drawing from a wealth of sources, including runestones, stelae, the Norse sagas, and folklore, as well as historical annals in Old English, Gothic, Frankish, ‘Rus-Slavonic, and Roman records, we explore a rich tapestry of cultural narratives. Occasionally, we delve into the Bronze Age and earlier periods, rediscovering the interplay between nomadic spirituality and the folk magic of Scandinavia.

Third Eye Blind

Within the realm of profound understanding, mystery reigns supreme. Yet, not all souls have the elusive spark of Draugablíkk — a sacred gift, granting the sight of the hidden realms through deep knowledge of the runes and the Old Gods.

“Thus, the task at hand falls on those with the natural ability to connect with the past while seeing reality for what it is — those with the blíkk.”

Those with the blíkk potential to grasp the intricate cycles of time and civilizations’ ebb and flow acknowledge the existence of advanced ancient civilizations that far surpassed our own.

Thus, the task at hand falls on those with the natural ability to connect with the past while seeing reality for what it is. Those who can sense the ancestral ghosts around us, the sleeping giants in the hills, and the great beasts and deities others dismiss as legend. Those reborn with the blíkk — whose scarred yet capable hearts chase sinister forces through the cycles of time.

It’s Not All About the Music

In addition to being a folk act focused on exploring ancient musical traditions, history, and lore, Draugablíkk is a cross-cultural project that aims to raise awareness of who we are — and from whence we came. Draugablíkk is a thought form, establishing itself through invigorating fiction and art based on the myths in which lies the initial truth of our creation.

“Topics include the Hunno-Gutnish conflicts of the Great Steppe, the Viking Age, and the Migration Era.”

The Old Gods Are Watching

The Old Gods do not want us to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery and meaning. Nonetheless, those who willingly embark on the path of self-initiation shall rekindle the forces of the Old Gods that will defy those who govern from the shadows.

With best wishes that you may be reborn in the kind of world our ancestors dreamt of.
