Artist appreciation series - Pt. 3: Draugurinn
For the third instalment of our exploration of the Nordvis roster, we turn to Swedish ritual ambient artist Draugurinn...
“Bergtagen” is a gloomy and mystical journey into the darkened shrine of dungeon synth. It is deeply inspired by the folklore of ancient Sweden and the dramatic nature that has left and continues to leave its time-worn scars on the landscape of the country and, in the harsher fringes, the faces of its people. The album pays homage to the rusty tones of autumn and succeeds in replicating that magical feeling of a lone walk through the woods as the russet hued leaves crunch underfoot. Take time out to free yourself from the many heavy chains that modern society burdens you with to immerse yourself in the solemn, Swedish beauty of Örnatorpet. To quote a certain famous show, ‘winter is coming.’
Listen to “Bergtagen” in it’s entirety now. It will be available via digital platforms such as Spotify and iTunes on November 30th.
