    Einar Selvik comments:

    "Ten years since the first release but almost twenty years since the first recording was made. It has been quite a journey so far, yet it feels like we just got started. The Runaljod albums are originally released on two different record labels and I am so happy to collaborate with Indie Recordings and my own label By Norse Music for a license and the opportunity to finally release the complete trilogy, they way it should, as one single product."

    “Runaljod” is a trilogy featuring musical renditions based on the runes. Each of the three albums is focused around eight of the twenty-four Proto-Norse runes, more commonly known as the Elder Futhark. The runes are interpreted on their own premises, although here their various qualities are placed in the wider context of various ancient Nordic traditions relating to nature and human and spiritual relations. For this reason, some of the recordings have also been made in various locations or under circumstances that have particular significance for the rune in question. Wardruna use a broad selection of both traditional and historical Nordic instruments. Non-traditional instruments and other sources of sound such as trees, stones, bones, water and fire are also used to enhance the nature of the rune being ‘portrayed’ in each case. Thorough research and serious study form an important foundation for our music but the ultimate intention is not to copy or recreate music from any specific time period. We take thoughts, tools and methods from the past and use them to create new music, which builds on the contemporary as well as the ancient.
