It's been a while since I posted news about Askrinn, as I had no concrete information to share with you. I spent quite a lot of time thinking about the next black metal opus I would be proposing you.
As you know, I am highly interested in using Old Norse lyrics, i.e. lyrics written in the old viking/icelandic language. As a consequence, instead of creating a meaningless story, I chose to pay homage to an old saga called The Saga of Half and His Heroes. As many themes and characters are evoked in this tale, I settled on specific parts directly related to King Halfr and his fall.
So far, I have decided to compose eight songs of varying length, but it is still a bit too early to tell how relevant this information is. I'm also considering proposing a few artists to feature on this album. In particular, since several characters are speaking, it might be interesting to use different singers.
Stay tuned thanks to my mailinglist (check the black bar at the bottom of your screen) if you want some more exclusive news !
