Kyrre Riksen explains “I filmed the music video by foot from Jotunheimen to Sognefjorden to bring listeners closer to the actual locations inspiring our songwriting and mindset for the first single from our next album. Therefore, the single is a tribute to the wanderer, and the focused mind achieved by wandering alone in the offline world.

When we were active as a metal band from 1991 to 1995 in Groruddalen we were also inspired by the dark expressions we found in the forest for creating our musical moods and lyrics so nothing is new from that perspective.

What´s new now with the single “For Vredens Saar” is we feature one of Norway´s oldest instruments, the bukkehorn, to make the listening experience just as raw and natural as the goat horns we crafted into instruments for recording purposes. Some may also recognise the sound of the instrument from the popular Vikings series on Netflix contributed by the Norwegian band, Wardruna and Einar Selvik.

We also deliberately stripped down the production to the basics with all its flaws to give the most primitive representation of the wanderer´s journey all the way from the mighty mountains of Jotunheimen via Sognefjellet before descending down to Sognefjorden with all the extreme weather shifts, scenic changes and varied moods."
