THYRFING - Debuts New Single From The Upcoming Album

Swedish Viking/pagan metal veterans Thyrfing are pleased to unveil the latest single, “Jordafärd” (which translates to “Burial”). The track comes off the band’s forthcoming Vanagandr full-length, set for release on the 27th of August via Despotz Records.

Vanagandr, which serves as the band’s first proper studio output in eight years, was co-recorded and co-produced by Jakob Herrmann (In Flames, Machine Head, Evergrey) at Top Floor Studios, in Gothenburg, Sweden with renowned producer/engineer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, U.D.O., Katatonia) looking after the mix and mastering. The art concept for Vanagandr was executed by former Dark Tranquillity guitarist Niklas Sundin of Cabin Fever Media who reconnects with the band once again (he did the Vansinnesvisor album back in 2002).
A brooding epic, “Jordafärd” demonstrates a more morose side of the band, in many ways different when compared to first single “Döp dem i eld”, released in March of this year. The distinct cello parts for the track were recorded by Fox Skinner (Grand Magus) along with Dutch artist Lon Snow, and we also hear Swedish soprano Natalie Hernborg in the finale. The track will be released along with cover artwork and beautiful visuals again by Niklas Sundin.
Issues the band of “Jordafärd”: “This is the slowest and probably the moodiest song on the album. A burial hymn and a longing for the end - the perfect album closer.” Link
