Loops used in Völvans Spådom by Jens Engelbrecht and Peo Drangert (“Scandinavian Roots Vol. 1”)
The cover illustrates a Völva (an alleged seer and practicant of sejd) holding a staff that resembles the Viking Age artifact (SHM inventory no. 25840) found in Klinta, Öland, in 1957. The raised stones and surrounding nature capture the essence of the typical cultural landscape seen in Southern Öland. The original painting was made by contemporary artist Martin Enrique Pelozo (email@example.com
) especially for this single.
Layout and complementary artwork by Segersäll and Morten Gråfäll.
In case you wondered, Ofärd do not believe in politics, fundamentalism, religious or racial intolerance, or any other kind of narrow-minded behaviour. They believe in Nature, Music and the strong bonds that unite lovers, family and brethren.
No folk instruments were harmed during the recording of this single!
