Lönndom's corpse was laid to rest long ago, but its spirit lives on. Graavehlder, formerly known by his more familiar handle Graav, which he carried from the Volkermord (read as: Armagedda) days onward, continues his pagan tales with the newly birthed Ehlder. With a familiar, odd soul and near-rock sensibilities, the blackened folk metal found within Ehlder's debut Nordabetraktelse are as ancient as its storyteller's body of work is vast. There is a unique quality to this work which belies its lineage -- the jangling character and lilting, almost playful rhythms which emerge from the brackish maw tell a story older than Ehlder, but what fuels it is older still. Listen to an exclusive premiere of "Tagen" below.

Graavehlder's own magic is unmistakable. Taken from a page written in his own blood, "Tagen"'s momentum grew long before Ehlder was birthed. Still, this monastic, solemn music is set apart from its lineage. It carries its sinister, folkish nature with a comportment all its own -- Graavehlder setting his new pet project apart from what led up to it. "Tagen"'s own woodland fury is spirited, but also channels a much more ancient deity through its own interpretation of ancient folk songs and tales. Ehlder is a magnificent continuation of the spirit which once channeled Lönndom and Armagedda, but separates itself through its own pure essence.
