Although their very fine debut, 's Sóknardalr, had already shown a remarkable creative vision and no lack of songwriting maturity, Windir's second album, 's Arntor, took advantage of lessons learned and much improved production standards to take the group's folk-laden black metal to a whole new tinoweberbeschtistberaquahareapprest.xyzinfog standards that would hereafter be emulated by numerous extreme metal bands Brand: Indie Recordings.
If you like black metal and you don't have any Windir in your collection, I would recommend this, it has all you could ask for from an album in the genre. Best tracks are: Arntor ein Warrior, Svartesmeden og Lundamyrstrollet, Kampen.
Windir - Arntor - tinoweberbeschtistberaquahareapprest.xyzinfo Music Anyways this is an okay cd with some good parts but overall I don't care for it and I doubt that I will buy any of Windir's other cd's instead I'll just stick with Moonsorrow. Das Besondere daran ist das sowohl dieses Werk als auch das 1te Album,,Sóknardalr" als Ein-Mann-Projekt von ihm selbst /5(23).
Hailing from Sogndal, Norway, Windirs second album Arntor is considered by many to be their greatest. It is easy to see why after listening to it as it contains many great elements ranging from Lead Guitar melodies to screams to folk melodies to clean singing to swing (yes swing).
Words can't explain the magnitude of greatness this album projects, being an artist myself windir, snd especially this album has had a great influence on my work. but all in all if you have an ear for great music pick this up.. every time i pop this album in i tend to tear a little valfar was a phenomenal artist in every way and his legacy has definitely been engraved in metal music/5(23).
"Arntor" was released in spring/summer in Norway, and autumn in the rest of the world. "Svatasmeden og Lundamyrstrollet" is the story of an old tale from Sogndal, Valfar's hometown, about a blacksmith and the Lundamyrs, a Troll's home. The song "Arntor, Ein Windir" is based upon an old folk song. Translation of the song titles.
Arntor is the second studio album by Norwegian black metal band Windir. It was released on 11 October through the record label Head Not Found. It is the last record released with Valfar playing the majority of the instruments.
