The Icelandic Viking Metal Heroes Skálmöld strike back with their 5th full length album “Sorgir”.
The album title (eng. Sorrows) gives the headline for this concept album that is divided in two parts: The first four songs tell four short stories about tragedies and death. It is called “Sagnir” (engl. Tales). The second chapter called “Svipir” (engl. Ghosts) thickens the plot by telling the same four stories from a different perspective.
“Sorgir” is a dark, cold and tragic album dealing with Icelandic myths of superstition, shadows, spectre and despair. Look elsewhere for something light, warm and comforting! Soaring melodies, folk elements and harsh outbursts remind of the chilly beauty of Skálmöld’s home country – Iceland, the eternal and awe-inspiring source of inspiration for neckbreakers such as “Gangari” and the gripping epic “Mara”.
