024: WARDRUNA

Wardruna’s music is not heavy in the traditional sense, though it could be said it is some of the most traditionally heavy music being produced today.

It is music that might’ve been perceived as heavy some 1200 years ago.

Wardruna create traditional Nordic folk music, taking inspiration from Norse traditions and mysticism, even going so far as to use the same instruments that would’ve been used to create similar music centuries ago.

In doing so, the band creates a truly moving and powerful experience, conjuring images of long ships, mighty stags, and trekking through snow covered forests. It’s a listening experience that you will become lost in, and will follow you for some time.

Wardruna’s music is a window, or a portal, to another time we’ve only read about in books and seen on TV. It’s both adventurous and meditative, and something truly remarkable to experience.
