When renowned musicians such as ENSLAVED guitarist / composer Ivar Bjørnson and Einar Selvik – the mastermind behind WARDRUNA, which gained attention far beyond the world of music for their contributions to the score of the acclaimed ‘Vikings’ TV-series – join forces, the outcome is far too easily dismissed in advance as a “super project”. Yet with SKUGGSJÁ the two Norwegians have clearly not only successfully combined their musical handwriting, but the sum of the duo’s craft is more than its already outstanding parts. Both are adding sonic expressions to the other’s sound that are enhancing their excellent songwriting into something new.
Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik comments: “Kvervandi means ‘turning’ or ‘whirling’ and is lyric-wise rather playfully displaying the various cycles of nature and of life from a Norse perspective. The song itself is heavy, slow moving, emotional and uncompromising just like the turning wheels of nature.”
