Wardruna present video for Old Norse poem “Voluspá”

Leading up to the release of Wardruna’s acoustic album “Skald”, Einar Selvik has teamed up with Finnish company Koski Syvari led by Tuukka Koski, plus a pack of wolves, creating a beautiful film to his skaldic rendition of the Old Norse poem “Voluspá” (Prophecy of the Seeress).

Filming took place in Finland where Einar spent intense days of training with the wolves and their caretakers, preparing for the shoot.

Watch the incredible video for “Voluspá” below.

Amigo The Devil reveals powerful music video for “Cocaine and Abel”

A key figure in the U.S. “murder folk” scene which also includes contemporaries such as The Devil Makes Three and The Dead South, the music of singer-songwriter Amigo The Devil is a unique blend of folk that also incorporates elements of Southern Gothic, Country and Bluegrass.

Initially influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, the artist born as Danny Kiranos has a recognized sound that carries traces of artists such as Americana string band Old Crow Medicine Show and singer-songwriters William Elliott Whitmore and David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower, allied with direct, often morbid lyrics shot through with a dark sense of humor.
 

Amigo The Devil reveals new track “Everyone Gets Left Behind”

If you've ever heard a room full of people yelling “I hope your husband dies” in a some harmoniously sloppy, drunken unison, you've probably stumbled into an Amigo The Devil show.

Danny Kiranos, better known to the masses as his musical counterpart Amigo The Devil, has been challenging the expectations of traditional folk, country music purists, and rock/extreme metal fans alike with his morbid, dark, yet oddly romantic take on folk that has amassed a dedicated and cult like fan-base.

Congrats on “Prometheus”. Seriously it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in recent years, easily surpassing the latest Rotting Christ albums imho.
