Neofolk with progressive black metal influences of Norwegian history. After the success of their previous collaboration «Skuggsjá»; Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) and Einar Selvik (Wardruna) are now following up with an imposing new piece entitled «Hugsjá». The word ‘Hugsjá’ means to see with, or within, the mind – and it reflects the idea that one’s mind has the potential to see further than the eyes can reach. By weaving together indigenous and contemporary thoughts, sounds and instruments, they are inviting you on a vivid journey – exploring the distant history and traditions along coastal Norway.
Recommended for fans of Wardruna, Enslaved, Primordial, Wongraven, Moonsorrow.
