HELRUNAR have just recently finished recording their fourth album, Sól, which due to its length is going to be released in two parts entitled Sól I – Der Dorn im Nebel and Sól II – Zweige der Erinnerung respectively.
Skald Draugir is very excited about the long-awaited follow-up to Baldr Ok Íss: “Sól is going to be our darkest and most nihilistic, but also our most spiritual work to date! On two albums with altogether around 100 minutes playing time, we will take new paths music-wise and lyrics-wise, while our roots are still very much black metal. Musically, we are putting an emphasis on atmosphere and an emotional arc of suspense on Sól, lending a certain epic broadness to the tracks.”
At the end of August, Skald Draugir and Alsvartr are going to return once more to the Klangschmiede Studio E to put the finishing touches to the double album. The release of Sól is still scheduled for 2010.
