Release Date: May 28th, 2021

Label: Season of Mist
Genre: Black Metal

1. Resurrection of the Wild
2. Martyrium
3. Despot
4. Blodssvik
5. Fagning
6. On the Mountain of Goats
7. Dauden
8. Ætti mørkna

While most of the Norwegian black metal scene was busy with themes of satanism and rebelling against the christian mainstream, Windir took a very different route. Formed by solo artist Valfar, this band wrote four albums before his untimely passing in 2004. This final album that was ever produced by the band is one of the two albums that feature a full lineup and it truly shows. This is the band at their finest, not only instrumentally, but with the best mix of their short but historic career. Guitars set the stage while bass and drums gather around. Featuring duets from the clean and screamed vocals more frequently than before, Likferd takes a small step back from the folk atmosphere to make room for more instrumentation and black metal mastery.

For fans of: Enslaved, Falkenbach, Borknagar

While most of the Norwegian black metal scene was busy with themes of satanism and rebelling against the christian mainstream, Windir took a very different route. Formed by solo artist Valfar, this band wrote four albums before his untimely passing in 2004. The final effort of the band finally showcases them at their best, not only instrumentally but with a mix that perfectly suits them backing them as well. With perfect clarity, you can hear every single sound that they play. Guitars set the stage for the bass and drums to frame them perfectly while the two vocals duet each other in perfect harmony. Taking a step back from the folk atmosphere for a more black metal approach, this album is the perfect curtain call to the career of the band.
