Outstanding German/Icelandic metallers Árstíðir Lífsins return with their highly anticipated 4th album entitled ‘Saga á tveim tungum I: Vápn ok viðr’. Like all previous outputs, the album will be released via German quality label Ván Records on exclusive 2LP, Digipack CD and known digital channels.
Since 2008, the art of Árstíðir lífsins breathes Old Norse history on all levels. Entirely sung in Old Icelandic and twinned with its sister album ‘Saga á tveim tungum II: Eigi fjǫll né firðir’ to be released in late 2019, ‘Vápn ok viðr’ takes you on a journey to the brutal power attempts of (in)famous Norwegian king Óláfr helgi Haraldsson in the early eleventh century as it is portrayed in the vernacular medieval Scandinavian sources.
