Skálmöld - Unveil New Album Details

After announcing earlier this year that they were recording a new album, Skálmöld have now spilled the beans and shared all the details about it. The Viking folk metallers from Iceland will release Sorgir on October 12th via Napalm Records, which will contain eight new songs.

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 (tales). The second chapter called Svipir (ghosts) thickens the plot by telling the same four stories from a different perspective.

According to the label, Sorgir is a dark, cold and tragic album dealing with Icelandic myths of superstition, shadows, spectre and despair. 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."

The tracklist reads as follows:

01. Ljósið
02. Sverðið
03. Brúnin
04. Barnið
05. Skotta
06. Gangári
07. Móri
08. Mara
