Windir - Arntor


Nationalromantic Dark Metal with black vocal/screams. That’s what this album is about.

Valfar created Windir as a "one-man-band", and on “Arntor” he did most of the work himself, altough he hired in session musicians.

Unlikely the previous album “Soknardalr” this album is fully based upon historical and cultural-subjects. This was more a “concept-album” which spun around the farmer Arntor, who raised anger against the Norwegian King - Sverre in 1184.

Musically it can be described as “dark” and “raw” folk metal.

Points: 5.8/6
