Wardruna presents video of the Old Norse poem “Voluspá”
Leading up to the release of WARDRUNAs acoustic album “Skald”, Einar Selvik has teamed up with Finnish company Koski Syvari led by Tuukka Koski, plus a pack of wolves, creating a beautiful film to his skaldic rendition of the Old Norse poem Voluspá (Prophecy of the Seeress). Filming took place in Finland where Einar spent intense days of training with the wolves and their caretakers, preparing for the shoot.

Einar Selvik comments:
“My respect for the craft behind this grand old poem is profound, so the task of making visuals for it was not taken lightly. After Tuukka and his team’s outstanding work on our previous video for “Raido”, it was a natural choice to work with them again. The film itself ended up with a production of over thirty people, and I am deeply humbled by the effort everyone put into it, and mighty proud of the result! On a more personal note I have to say that having the privilege to interact so closely with the wolves featured in the video, is something I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”
Tuukka Koski comments:
“It was a great journey to collaborate on this new video for Wardruna. Knowing that Einar doesn’t settle for little and seeing him this happy makes me proud of myself as well.”
“Skald” is due for release on 23rd November via By Norse Music. It’s the bands fourth album, which was founded by Einar Selvik in 2003.
