about

EÍN: Ættarbál includes two tracks: “Burial at Sea (Ættarbál)” and the Old Norse poem, “Hel var Árheim” (“Hel was our Homeland”).

The first track tells the story of the creation of the world and hints at a historical origin of the Jǫtnar of Norse mythology. Written in Old Norse meter by Draugablíkk member Viniþarr Amal, Hel var Árheim (Old Norse Poetry), draws inspiration from the Vǫluspá (Prophecy of the Vǫlva) 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 and is told by a vǫlva seeress addressing Óðinn.)

The second track, 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.

EÍN: Burial at Sea is not meant to sound new, but never was it meant to sound old.
