Released October 18, 2019 — 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, Hel var Árheim draws inspiration from the Vǫluspá (“Prophecy of the Vǫlva/Seeress”) which is the most famous poem in Snorri Sturluson’s Poetic Edda literature. 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. Vinithor Amal]
