Windir - Whole Discography To Be Released On Vinyl For The First Time


When Windir mastermind Valfar had died in 2004, the remaining band members launched Vreid. Now, they've announced that Windir discography, featuring all four records - Sóknardalr, Arntor, 1184 and Likferd - will be released in vinyl edition for the first time ever. They will be available in a special, limited edition wooden box, dubbed The Sognametal Legacy, strictly limited to 1184 copies worldwide. You can pre-order it here. In other news, Vreid also confirmed that they will perform the Windir's classic album 1184 in its entirety at Karmøygeddon Metal Festival next year.

Bassist Jarle Hváll Kvåle says: "I am so happy that we are finally able to do this. There has been such a huge demand to release these albums on vinyl and I really have been looking forward to this day. These records are important cornerstones in our lives and represent a time that was very special to us. It is great to have a strong partner on board, and I am very proud that we can do this together with Season of Mist.

"Next year marks the 20th anniversary of 1184, and we think this is a great occasion to celebrate this unique album, the most important one in the Windir history. With this record, Windir became a full band for the first time and it was the first time that me and Terje wrote an album together. It was a time filled with youthful will, aggression, pride, curiosity and of course beautiful naivety. So, to celebrate this record and the period it represents, we'll have the entire Windir legacy available on vinyl. I can't wait to get my hands on the physical copies and see no better way to celebrate the legacy and brotherhood of our fallen comrade Terje."

''1184 is a very important album for us as a band and not least for me personally", states songwriter and bassist Jarle Kvåle. "The album was the first album Terje and I wrote together. It was the first time Windir became a complete band even though we had played concerts together since 1995, and worked together with music since the start in 1993. It seems inconceivable that it is now 20 years since we worked on making these songs, but all the more enjoyable to see how much this album still means to people. We are really looking forward to gather the full band and perform the entire 1184 album at the Karmøygeddon Festival.''

I preordered this the moment the news dropped. As a longtime fan of Windir, I've been hoping for this day.
After Blood Music coming out and saying they couldn't secure the rights from Head Not Found and the bands disinterest pursuing it, I lost hope.
This makes me happier than anyone could possibly know.

Tried as I might I couldn't get into the Windir hype. If anyone wants to convince me on their post melo black, proto Ensiferum sound please. Any enlightening would be appreciated.

I want this so bad. I wish I had an extra $400 lying around for this and the Thy Catafalque bookset.

Prior to shipping it would cost you just a hair over $200 if that makes the expense more manageable.

It was out of stock literally less than an hour after the news was posted. I know they wanted to do the 1184 thing for thematic purposes but they could have printed 5000 of these things and sold them all no problem.

I have zero doubt that they will eventually do a repress, maybe as single units if they now have SoM having the rights to vinyl pressing.
Now if Sigh will have treatments of Hangman's Hymn and Scenario IV that aren't in a $700CAD boxset...

I need Sigh to reprint Ghastly Funeral Theatre and Hail Horror Hail on CD. They're the only two I don't have because they're crazy expensive.

I meant $400 for both! But seeing as this Windir set went out of stock immediately, I guess there's no point in pining!

I have all the Sigh CDs, even their live album from the early 90s. Their Crypt releases, and everything else on vinyl. Just need those two bad boys and I'm golden. I'm completely enamoured by that band.
