As reviewers have been raving about the new Obscura album Akróasis, it was a good moment for Metal-Exposure to have a chat with mastermind Steffen Kummerer.

Skuggsjá song premiere – ‘Kvervandi’

A few lucky ones have been able to see Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik’s Skuggsjá live on Roadburn or perhaps in Norway. For the others, the prayers have been answered and this unique Enslaved/Wardruna cooperation will be released on the self-titled record, via Season of Mist on March 11, worldwide. We are glad to host the stream of the new song Kvervandi.

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.”

All we have to add is the following: Pre-order the marvellous Skuggsjá album!
