Wardruna are finally ready to present their next album entitled "Runaljod – Ragnarok". It is the third instalment in a trilogy of albums that began with "Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga" (2009) and continued with "Runaljod – Yggdrasil" (2013). In short, the ambitious idea behind the trilogy was to create musical interpretations of each of the twenty-four old Nordic runes. It proved to be a lengthy and challenging task. Some of the material on the album even date back to 2003 and the early stages of the project, when multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Einar Selvik started to develop the genre-defying sound and style that Wardruna have become known for.

Wardruna’s new album ”Yggdrasil” is out now! This is the second album in the Runaljod trilogy, a musical rendition of the 24 runes in the elder futhark, by Kvitrafn and Gaahl. With the use of the oldest of Nordic instruments and poetic metres as well as lyrics written in Norwegian, Old Norse and Proto-Norse tongue, Wardruna is now, after nearly three years in the making, finally ready to return with the second album in the ‘Runaljod’ trilogy entitled ‘Yggdrasil’. Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Einar Kvitrafn Selvik has, together with vocalists Kristian Espedal (aka Gaahl) and Lindy-Fay Hella, managed to make ​​a strikingly beautiful and intense continuation of what was started with their first album, but without falling into the trap of merely repeating themselves.
