I'm a big Wardruna fan and they have a new bit of music out smile.gif I also love Linda-Fay Hella (She is the female singer with the dark hair. Her voice just gives me chills) As you may know, the lead singer EINAR was the touring drummer for Black Metal Legends GORGOROTH for several years before embarking on Wardruna, which is more of a "Euro-Folk" kind of thing than a Metal thing. Ex Gorgoroth lead sing Gaahl even participates in the Wardruna project and live shows (more so on the last album though).
Anyhoo, enough history, here is the new vid smile.gif "Raido" which comes from the runes of the "Elder Furthark" and can mean the journey of ones life, or a spiritual quest. The lyrics are NOT in english. But are provided as translation in the info sectioN smile.gif It's never bothered me listening to music in Norwegian, Finn, or Dutch, be maybe it's just me smile.gif This is sung in Norwegian which is just a beautiful language Imho.

Here is Einar and Wardruna from VIKINGS doing "HELVEGEN" or "The Path/Road to Hell"

Here is the "Vikings Suite" with full orchestra featuring Einar and a friend of GMCer klasaine, featured on Cello named Tina Guo (she is freaking awesome)

very cool indeed smile.gif Looking forward to the new album, just a couple of weeks till Ragnarok ohmy.gif smile.gif

Always liked this vid - I wonder if at 1:00 as the camera pans up to show the ships, the wooden post is so obviously in the shot, I wonder if its in the shape of a rune or something symbolic, that would be cool smile.gif

Having Einar himself sing the Vikings off was truly Epic. Just a great choice for the show which is pretty darn Epic all by itself smile.gif That bit pole is actually functional. They use it in loading and unloading the ships. It's somewhat vaguely similar to the Raido Rune (but not very much so) which symbolizes a journey. I can't wait for the next season to start. They are done filming from what I understand. The only thing more I could ask if if Linda-Fey Hela (the Gal that sings in Wardruna) joined the cast of Vikings smile.gif:
