Wardruna - Runaljod - Yggdrasil CD
Four years following the release of “Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga”, Wardruna returns with their sophomore album and second installment in the trilogy: “Runaljod – Yggdrasil”. Like its precursor, this album is an interpretation of the runes of the Elder Futhark. It also focuses on eight specific runes, like the album that came before it, so we can only assume the final installment in the trilogy titled “Runaljod – Ragnarok” will focus on the final eight runes, thus giving each of the 24 runes a musical representation. This album retains a very ancient, native sound, which makes perfect sense, seeing as the Elder Futhark is the oldest form of runic alphabets.
