Video's 5x New – week 42 by Sabine van Gameren 18 October 2020 MY LITTLE WHITE RABBIT present their new video!HELLO MISTER, don‘t excuse! Still love bunnies but hate sexism. Thrudvangar return to their melodic roots with their new album and reflect on the trademarks of Viking Metal: powerful riffs, catchy melodies and grand choirs take the listener on a journey to the ancient myths and legends of the Vikings. “Siegvaters Maid” is the new video, out now! “The Icelandic word ‘Farg’ refers to a heavy burden”, writes Einar Thorberg Guðmundsson. “A very dear friend of mine carried such a heavy burden all his life and eventually died far too young. His story would easily fill a book, if I could bring myself to write it. For the time being, all I want to say is that I wrote this song as a means of self-therapy and to send a message out to the cosmos. After many years, I have finally come to terms with his passing. The weight we carry should rightfully only belong to the living. May he rest in peace. ‘Farg’ is dedicated to Sverrir Örn Ólafsson (27 December 1979 – 28 August 2012) – never forgotten.” Kvitravn (White Raven) is the title track from WARDRUNA’s upcoming album. It’s a song that explores traditions of animal-guides and the symbolism and legends of sacred white animals found in Nordic- and other cultures all over the world. These highly regarded ghostly creatures, whether a raven, snake, bear, moose, reindeer, elephant or lion – are in animist traditions seen as prophetic, divine messengers, and guardians representing renewal, purity and a bridge between worlds.” All Them Witches have built a career out of playing music that cannot be pigeonhold into one specific genre, but is somewhat a genius mix of alternative rock, psychedelic desert blues, classic heavy rock and dark country. “Nothing As The Ideal” was recorded in Studio 2 at the world famous Abbey Road Studios (a.o. Pink Floyd, The Beatles), with the help of longtime mixing engineer Mikey Allred. The history and vibe of that setting laid the groundwork for what was to come.
