IVAR BJØRNSON & EINAR SELVIK’S SKUGGSJÁ SKUGGSJÁ Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
When renowned musicians such as ENSLAVED guitarist / composer Ivar Bjørnson and WARDRUNA mastermind Einar Selvik join forces, the outcome is far too easily dismissed in advance as a "super project". Yet with SKUGGSJÁ the two Norwegians have clearly not only successfully combined their musical handwriting, but the sum of the duo's craft is more than its already outstanding parts. Both are adding sonic expressions to the other's sound that are enhancing their excellent songwriting into something new. Harsh metal guitars seem to effortlessly connect with ancient instruments and the emerging intricate patterns are reminiscent of the intertwined, whirling and deeply fascinating Viking age animal styles translated into songs. The result is a richly evocative sonic tapestry for the mind to wander on and create images of a long gone past without any misplaced nostalgia.
