arstidir lifsins

The idea to approach Old Norse literature and art in a musically and lyrically sophisticated way gave birth to Árstíðir lífsins (‘the seasons of life’) which was founded in 2008. Black Metal was chosen as the musical form, although traditional Folk as well as Ambient were to be incorporated right from the beginning. The band consists of known and experienced members from bands such as German Helrunar, Kerbenok or Drautran and Swedish/Icelandic band Skendöd.
