NÍU: Blood of the Amali (Ásaland Metal Cut)

DRAUGABLÍKK Album

“NÍU: Blood of the Amali (Ásaland Metal Cut)” is our debut album which includes nine boreo-pagan metal tracks.

“NÍU: Blood of the Amali (Ásaland Metal Cut)” includes nine tracks, which are inspired by Scandinavian and Eurasian history, shamanic philosophies of the great steppes, and last — but certainly not least — by Norse and Gothic sagas and myth, and also by Slavic and Scythian chroniclers.

The number nine is significant in the Old Norse myths, as made evident by Óðinn (Odin) — who sacrificed himself, to himself, on the tree of life Yggdrasil for nine days and nights, until the secret of the runes was revealed to him. Further, the sagas describe how Thor takes nine steps and falls to the ground dead after he fought his last fight with the Midgard Serpent at Ragnarök (Ragnarǫkkr). Heimdall, who is the guardian of the rainbow bridge Bifrost, was born by nine sisters — an event echoed in the nine daughters of the sea-goddess Rán, who rules the oceans.
