Wardruna - Skald LP (Black vinyl)


What stands out most is that this album moves beyond lyricism and into the realm of poetry. And what magnificent, eloquent poetry it is! I should say thank you to genius.com for providing the English translation and some notes on the production of the album. Translations, as cited on the website, are provided by Einar himself, as they were found in the album credit, and taken from authentic translation of the poems in English by various translators. 

On the whole, I can say one thing: if you have one single Viking blood cell in your body, and I am most certain you do, DON’T MISS THIS ALBUM.
