SIG:AR:TYR - New Album In The Works, Tracklist Announced

The best of news for fans of blackened folk are here. Like a stealthy Viking raider, SIG:AR:TYR has been preparing a new expedition. After becoming a live ensemble and following a four-year gap after Godsaga, the band is preparing the new album Northen and the tracklist has already been unveiled. And there will be real drums on the next SIG:AR:TYR album.

Daemonskald has this to offer: "I have completed writing the final song for the new album Northen! What a journey it has been! I'm very happy with the songs so far, it has taken a long time to get them together (over a year and a half since the first concept came to me) but I'm satisfied that they will be 9 very strong songs that hit hard with memorable riffs, solos, and words that will tell the tale of the Norse in Canada 1000 years ago, and the mystery of what it is to be one of the 'Northen'.

"The songs all revolve around the three North American areas explored by the Vikings in their sagas, Helluland (Baffin Island?), Markland (Labrador?), and Vinland (Newfoundland and beyond). As you know it's very important to me to have my albums flow like a book, and it usually takes me longer than I expect to fit it all together the way I want it.

"An interesting thing to note compared to previous releases is that there are no instrumentals on this album. I did not plan it that way. Whatever inspires me to tell the story and set the mood I want is what comes out of me! Now on to the next steps of getting into the studio to get the drums recorded!"

Here is what should be the final tracklist:

01. Helluland
02. Crownless
03. Runarmal
04. Markland (The Hammer Fades)
05. Skraeling
06. Krossanes
07. Vinland
08. Northen
09. When the Last Ship Sails
