Windir: 1184 LP

Availability: In stock

Windir was founded by Terje "Valfar" Bakken in 1994 and released four albums in the period of 1997-2003. The Norwegian band gained a massive following with their unique blend of black and heavy metal with elements of old Norwegian folk music. The identity of the group was strongly connected to their home region Sogn, which was demonstrated in the lyrics and in the concepts of the records. Eventually, they invented and adopted the term ‘Sognametal' for their style.

The band ended abruptly when Bakken died in 2004. The remaining musicians decided to disband Windir and formed Vreid to march forward, bearing the torch of the Sognametal legacy. For decades, fans have been asking for vinyl releases of the iconic and beloved Windir albums. And now that dream becomes a reality. The black metal classics Soknardalr (1997), Arntor (1999), 1184 (2001) and Likferd (2003) are being offered on double vinyl LP in 2021 courtesy of Season of Mist.

Jarle Hváll Kvåle, bass guitarist and songwriter of Windir and Vreid, comments on the release: "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. 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."
