To honor the Winter Solstice, we are releasing ‘Hreinnhǫfði – Solstice Sólablót’ today — Tuesday, December 21.
We consider this a single release even though it has two tracks, one with metal instrumentation and the other with more acoustic neofolk.” Also, the reworked song features the vocals of our new female singer Alvtýra. The track is a reworked, more “shamanic” follow-up version of our Verjaseiðr album song by the same name (the Verjaseiðr record released on the Winter Solstice of 2020, exactly one year ago).
The 2021 winter solstice occurs at 10:59 a.m. ET/7:59 a.m. and (nowadays) marks the official start of the astronomical winter and the shortest day of the year for the Northern Hemisphere.
We hope fans will be listening to any of the new Hreinnhǫfði versions at the above time and day. Rest assured, we will be there with you in spirit — on time and schedule.
Hreinnhǫfði — Solstice Sólablót Tracklist:
- Hreinnhǫfði feat. Alvtýra (Verjaseiðr Metal Cut)
- Hreinnhǫfði feat. Alvtýra (Galdramadr Unplugged)
