Biografie : Vanir (DK)

With a varied range of musical backgrounds ranging from Black Metal (Martin, Phillip, Mike), Funk (Lars), Classical, Death Metal, and Opera (Andreas) to traditional Norse Irish and Scottish Folk Music (Amanda, Sara) Vanir sets out to create Folk Metal with a great focus on the Folk-based qualities of the music.

Out inspiration is gotten from the many folk tales that they have grown up with, and with an at times pretty alcoholized interpretation of myths and legends, the many tales of Vanir’s songs spring forth and make the frame of the shows with which Vanir raids and pillages the venues that they play.

Vanir creates the soundtrack for any party which should end in crazed drunkenness, and any raid which should end in glorious victory! they do not compromise with the folk aspect of their music and have a great respect for their ancestors, and the myths which they interpret through the music. But they also view them beyond their warrior-like qualities. Aside from being strong, proud, and brutal on the field of battle, they were also capricious had a lust for feasts and at times thoroughly smashed. Their goal at any show of them is to tear the roof from the venue (figuratively speaking), and to show the gods that among their fans, even today, there are still Vikings worthy of sitting at the tables of Valhalla, feast on Særimner’s flesh, drink of Sutting’s mead and call themselves Einherjar of the Gods! With the release of the EP Jörmungandr, and the Album Særimners Kød, Vanir is ready to conquer Europe with their energetic brand of Folk Metal!
