Arstidir Lifsins – Saga á tveim tungum I: Vápn ok viðr

arstidir lifsins – saga á tveim tungum i: vápn ok viðr

This…is truly a complete album. It starts out vicious and just gets better from there. I’m not always a big fan of the concept album, but this old Icelandic language based group absolutely kill this saga of  Norwegian king Óláfr helgi Haraldsson…and…there is a second album due later this year to continue the tale!

Blending chanting, ambient passages, folkish passages and straight harshness, Arstidir Lifsins attacks the listener with a well thought out, supremely structured and unrelenting assault. I am looking forward to part two and beyond. I can’t begin to compare the sound to anything else, it sounds like something that has always existed…yet brand new. (TravisN)
