There are only four more weeks to go until the official release date of “Til Fjälls del II”, Vintersorg’s sequel to groundbreaking 1998 album “Till Fjälls,” a milestone in the genre of black/pagan metal.
The album will be released worldwide on June 30th via Napalm Records and available as a 2CD 6 page digipak or as a 2LP gatefold edition. Today a new track comes online from the release – check out “Jökelväktaren” below.
Andreas Vintersorg Hedlund comments: “This song is kind of a sequel to the song called ‘Jökeln’ from the ‘Till Fjälls’ album from 1998. I really wanted to tie it back to that lyrical theme that deals with glaciers. The first episode on that old album is more of an observation of the mightiness of a glacier and how it effects its surroundings, including mankind.
“On the new episode I took a different path lyric wise. It’s much more from an environmental stand point dealing with sustainability. Mankind continues to treat this planet as garbage in some aspects to the point that we actually contribute to melting poles. So, the lyric is about a human being that sees this and tries to address this problem. Still it has a lot of nature scenery-worship-style. The music has both harsh and soft edges with a very powerful chorus.”
