In for a Fest with Baldrs?
One of my most anticipated album for 2017 was the acoustic album by Friesland’s favorite sons, Baldrs Draumar. After being in my top album list in 2015 with their last electric album “Aldgillissoan”, the boys decided to go unplugged for their next release and it doesn’t disappoint at all. “Fan Fryslâns Ferline” is all new material written specifically for this release (with one exception in “Hadagrims Fertriet” from the last album making it’s way on). I sent some questions over regarding the new album, the process of writing and recording as well as the big release party for it….check it out……
Congrats on your epic new album “Fan Fryslâns Ferline”….what has been the reaction to it so far?
“Reactions are beyond our imaginations. Everyone seems to like it very much.
Reviews are also very positive!”

The Fryslâns Viking Horde that is Baldrs Draumar is making their triumphant return with their brand new album “Aldgillissoan” being released on April 18th. With a heavier sound than previous releases, Baldrs Draumar is poised to conquer with this new album. I was able to speak to the band regarding the new album, change in lineup as well as sound and the upcoming release show……
Huge congratulations are in order for your return with “Aldgillissoan”, have you heard any early reviews of it so far prior to its release?
“Thank you very much. We do have some reviews already, all of which are very praiseful!”
For those of us that do not speak your native language, is there a simple definition to the album’s title “Aldgillissoan”?
“Of course there is, the title can be split up in two different words (Aldgillis and soan). The album is about Rêdbâd, who is the son of Aldgillis. Since we didn’t want to give the album the same name as the main character we referred to him as “son of Aldgillis – Aldgillissoan.”

My advice would be to stay awake a little longer and forego sleep, especially to check out the latest from Viking horde … Continue reading →
