Sounds | Månegarm, En snara av guld



En daar is de tweede clip van Månegarm's aankomende album Ynglingaättens Öde!!!


Met het nummer En snara av guld breng Månegarm een minder harde maar zeer fijne stijl van folk metal dan het vorige nummer Ulvhjärtat. En snara av guld, translated 'a snare of gold' is eigenlijk de stijl en het melodieuze geluid zoals we dat gewend zijn van de band.


En de bijbehorende clip ook. Een mix van mooi landschap, viking verhalen, oude tradities en het broodnodige geweld maakt dit een clip dat een verhaal verteld die je af wil kijken.

Er is nog weinig bekend over een Europese tour maar Månegarm staat geboekt op meerdere grote festivals, en organiseren zoals gewoonlijk hun eigen feestje in Zweden komende zomer.

Lees MÅNEGARM keep the heathen fire alive with vibrant folk and Viking spirit!

Swedish folk metal pillars MÅNEGARM have made a name for themselves in the international scene by releasing nine full-length records since their debut, Nordstjärnans tidsålder, back in 1998. Now, the Scandinavian crew takes another stroll through ancient sagas and myths of long forgotten times on the successor of 2019’s chart-topping Fornaldarsagor with their upcoming 10th studio album, Ynglingaättens Öde (EN: the fate of the Ynglinga kin), out April 15, 2022 via Napalm Records.

In their multifaceted world of sound, MÅNEGARM incorporate Pagan inspired lyricism based on the old Norse poem Ynglingatal, which describes the fate of an old Norse dynasty - the house of Ynglinga. Ynglingaättens Öde offers balanced variety and atmosphere, breathing new life into ancient myths.


To sink deep into this unique occasion and to keep the Viking flame burning bright, the three-piece have just released their staggering brand new track, entitled “Ulvhjärtat” (EN: the Wolfheart), alongside a gripping official music video. An acoustic introduction acts as a prelude for a stomping yet catchy hymn with harsh riffs, engaging drums and anthemic melodies, as MÅNEGARM underline their standing as spearheads in the world of Viking metal once more.


MÅNEGARM on “En snara av guld”:

“'En snara av guld' is our newest single from the upcoming album and is one of the songs that we are most satisfied with. It's a grand, epic song that revolves around one simple but powerful melody; a melody that tells this gruesome story in a captivating way: the story about the Finnish daughter Skjalv who gets abducted and is forced to marry King Agne – the same man that killed her father. She finally gets her revenge on Agne and when the new day dawns, the King gets his final rest high up in the trees.”
