Pasarahzu Not even 30 seconds in and every hair on my body is raised several times. This legend never dies. Favorite track: Arntor, A Warrior.

frithrah A true classic. Passion and skill in equal measure with enough rawness for the purity to come through. The core melodies are high and sweeping - I love this charging and uplifting sound. A celebration of mountain and forest. Favorite track: The Blacksmith and the Troll of Lundamyri.

empyreal cascadian murmuration A flawless and classic album from a legend of the early pagan metal scene, and the pioneers of Sognametal. Hard to overstate the influence of this album and band over the last two decades on so many folk/pegan/atmo BM acts from Winterfylleth, Soar, Obsequiae, Harakiri for the Sky and on and on and on. This is foundational, one of the greatest black metal bands and albums of all time. Any fan of BM owes it to themselves and the legend that is Windir and Valfar to take heed. Yeeeehaw! Favorite track: Arntor, A Warrior.

Lycanthrope An amazing, and epic album! from start to finish. I may not understand the lyrics, however I do understand the music. Favorite track: The Blacksmith and the Troll of Lundamyri.

Björnen Really great atmosphere on this album. For me it's connected with nature all the way and my own visions of landscapes and mountains.

That epic solo at the end on The Longing is also just something extra special. One of the best solos I've heard of all time. WHAT A FEELING! Favorite track: The Blacksmith and the Troll of Lundamyri.

Masterminded in 1994 by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Terje "valfar" Bakken, Windir issued a couple of demos before debuting with 1997s Soknardalr, where Steingrim played drums and Steinarson provided vocals in Saognamaol dialect. ... more
