VANIR new album details

VANIR - Onwards into Battle

After the release of debut album “Særimners Kød” in April 2011, things have gone quickly for the metal warriors of Vanir. The rising Danish folk metal band is now ready with the follow-up, “Onwards Into Battle”, which will be released on the 10th of September 2012 by Mighty Music. The theme is, of course, still the deeds of the Vikings as well as Norse mythology, but the band have turned the focus from the feasts around the tables of Valhalla to the field of battle, its bloody conflicts and great warriors.

As on “Særimners Kød” there are no compromises with the melodic elements of the music. Since the first release, however, there has been an expansion of the band in the shape of Lasse Guldbæk Jensen on lead guitars, which has meant a new weapon with which to battle the Jötunn! This has, for “Onwards Into Battle”, meant a larger focus on the metal with the rumbling of the war drums, the thundering of the guitar and the epic solos for which metal is known. Thus, with “Onwards Into Battle“, Vanir is ready to bring the brave Einherjer and Valkyries out of the warm taverns and into the field of battle to fight for a place in Valhalla, where the mead flows eternally.
