Wardruna

About Wardruna

Wardruna is a Norwegian music group dedicated to creating musical renditions of Norse cultural and esoteric traditions. Founded in 2002 by former Gorgoroth drummer and solo musician Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik, and inspired by his long-held fascination with the Old Norse language and the Norse runic alphabet he created something truly ancient-sounding.

The project utilizes primarily traditional instruments, some of them homemade, such as hide-covered frame drums, goat horns, kraviklyra (Norway’s oldest known stringed instrument), and lur (birch trumpet). With the use of the oldest Nordic instruments and poetic metres, lyrics written in Norwegian, Norse and proto-Norse tongue, Wardruna sets out to give new voice to ancient and ever-relevant ideas and wisdom from the past.
