EÍN: Ættarbál

“EÍN: Ættarbál” includes two tracks: Burial at Sea (Ættarbál) & Hel var Árheim (Old Norse Poetry).

EÍN: Ættarbál tells the story of the creation of the world and hints at a historical origin of the Jǫtnar of Norse mythology.

  • Burial at Sea (Ættarbál) is a song that honors the fallen and is set against the sounds of sea and weather of long ago. As a dead chieftain’s ship is set ablaze by fire archers from the shoreline, his assembled comrades commend his soul’s journey to the old gods.
  • Written in Old Norse meter, Hel var Árheim (Old Norse Poetry) [feat. Viniþórr Amal], draws inspiration from the Vǫluspá (“Prophecy of the Vǫlva/Seeress”) which is the most well-known poem of Snorri Sturluson’s Poetic Edda (the Vǫluspá tells the story of the creation of the world and its coming end. It is told by a Vǫlva addressing Óðinn.)

 

Tracklist:

  1. Hel var Árheim (Old Norse Poetry) [feat. Viniþórr Amal]
  2. Burial at Sea (Ættarbál)
