VARANG NORD Bring Down The Hammer With ‘Pārķiuņa Uomurs’

Pārķiuņa Uomurs (Thunder’s Hammer) is the fourth studio album from Latvian group Varang Nord. As with previous albums, it still combines harsh death metal riffs with epic accordion chants, creating a unique blend of northern pagan/folk metal, but for the first time in band’s history, all the lyrics are written in the Latgalian language (an eastern dialect of Latvian). The album is proudly dedicated to Varang Nord’s homeland, the power and beauty of it’s nature and the depth of it’s cultural roots.

The album was produced by the band and recorded at their personal studio. Mixing and mastering was by Gints Lundbergs at the well-known Latvian Sound Division Studio. Traditional instruments like medieval bagpipes and talharpa were recorded by the talented Alyona Fomina (MJØD). All the orchestral arrangements were done by a young upcoming composer named Yuri Borin and the powerful basslines were created by the legendary Serge Karshev (Neglected Fields, Preternatural).

Varang Nord are a folk/pagan metal band from the cold woodlands of Latvia. Their songs praise mighty battles, bloody sacrifices to the Old Gods and joyful northern feasts with endless mugs of ale. Time to join the festivities!
