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.
2019 marks ten years since Wardruna’s first release. Sold-out shows at prestigious concert venues around the world followed, including a performance in the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in the United States and incredibly successful European tour. The group's monolithic and cinematic Runaljod trilogy based on the Nordic runes has reached its conclusion, and was followed by a stripped-down, fully acoustic album exploring the ancient poetic traditions of the Skalds. In spring 2020, a new chapter for the band will start. New music is being worked on as well as further steps in the band's concert production.
