Norwegian world folk music act, Wardruna have released Kvitravn – First Flight Of The White Raven, in Australia via By Norse/Nerve Gas. To mark the occasion the band have released a live video capture of fan-favourite, “Helvegen“. This atmospheric and haunting track is often the conclusion of their live set, providing a rousing finish, as exemplified in the video below.
Wardruna have carved a rich, polyphonic and dramatic musical landscape that honours the ancient past without gimmick, whilst simultaneously illuminating meaningful expressions of Norse tradition through intrinsically detailed contemporary composition. Beyond genre, theirs is a sound that must be truly experienced.
In 2022, a year after the release of Kvitravn, Wardruna are presenting Kvitravn – First Flight of the White Raven – a release on 2CD, and digital formats, including the original Kvitravn studio album of 2021, plus a audio release captured from their lauded, boundary-pushing virtual live experience First Flight of the White Raven of March 26th 2021. This new release captures their special set list consisting of songs from Kvitravn and fan favourites from across their discography.
As a special treat, it will be available as a limited Box Edition including 2LP (black), 2CD, DVD, Flag of the album cover, Certificate of authenticity for the box and an exclusive autographed card signed by Einar Selvik.
