Vévaki release stunning music video for “Heimdalagaldr”

Nordic folk band Vévaki  are now releasing a stunning music video for their new song “Heimdalagaldr”. The video was created by Dániel Puskás (Valhallartworks) and is streaming at the official Season of Mist Youtube Channel.

Vévaki comment on the release:

“Heimdalagaldr is our nod to the lost Eddic poem of the same name, of which we only have two surviving lines.. “Níu em ek mæðra mavgr, níu em ek systra sonur. I am born of nine mothers, I am the son of nine sisters.””

The song is taken from the new album ‘Fórnspeki’, which will be out via Season of Mist on October 28th.

Originally a solo project by singer and multi-instrumentalist Will Hunter, Vévaki is a folk band which draws from Nordic heathenism and animistic traditions. Myth, ritual and a connection with the natural world inform Vévaki’s music, which is both contemporary in sound and wide-ranging in instrumentation.

The cover art was created by Živa Ivadóttir and can be found below together with the track list.
