Wardruna - Runaljod: Gap Var Ginnunga

Indie Recordings, 2009

A perhaps somewhat out-of-character discovery from a recent spanning out of tastes, a powerful Norse percussive/chant/folk ritual music group exploring the essence of the runes. Nowhere near as stilted or boring as the usual "neofolk"-ish fare, this is really quite excellent and professional music. Features Gaahl from Gorgoroth.

Make sure to read the artists' own description of the album/series' theme.
