Icelandic Viking Metal Heroes SKÁLMÖLD now present the second track from their upcoming brand new album “Sorgir”, which will be released on October 12th via Napalm Records.
Vocalist/guitarist Björgvin Sigurðsson states: “This song is called “Móri”. A song about forbidden love. A sad song where a man slays the woman he loves in a moment of madness in order to save his own life. But I guess you will get more details on the stories behind the songs on the new album later.
This is also one of my favorite songs on the album. I feel like we are exploring territories which we have barely touched previously. The main theme for the song being more rock than metal I guess. It was bit hard to put this song together but once everything fell into place it sounded super good – and undeniably like SKÁLMÖLD.
“Sorgir” (eng.: sorrows) is a dark, cold and tragic album dealing with Icelandic myths of superstition, shadows, spectre and despair. Look elsewhere for something light, warm and comforting! Soaring melodies, folk elements and harsh outbursts remind of the chilly beauty of SKÁLMÖLD‘s home country – Iceland, the eternal and awe-inspiring source of inspiration for neckbreakers such as “Gangari” and the gripping epic “Mara”.
