Notably outstanding on the Russian scene and largely compared with the legendary Wardruna, Nytt Land are unique in their devotion to ritual northern music and tradition. Their approach, using genuine native hand-crafted instruments, and true Old Norse, help them to grasp the true spirit of ancient northern music like no one in Eastern Europe has done before. Their music is mostly based on the sources from Poetic Edda, performed in original Old Islandic. Fimbulvinter is enriched with instruments like bagpipes and trembita (Alpine horn), and throat singing, skillfully used to illustrate the occurrence of the forces of chaos; chthonic monsters in the world of men and gods. Fear and powerlessness alongside belief in the coming revival, renewal. All Scandinavian mythology is permeated with fatalism, humbleness to fate. The same mood saturates Fimbulvinter. The first part is dedicated to the creation of the world and people, embodying the warm seasons. The second half to winter, the death of all living things. Nytt Land supported Wardruna on their Russian tour in February of 2017. Features: Uliana Shulepina and Eisenslav (Kroda). CD version comes in a six-panel digipak, featuring all lyrics.
