Urferd‘s debut album, Resan has arrived. Dark ambient folk music at its very best, join on an eight tracks long journey through dark and olden nordic forests. The album is released together with a brand new music video for the track Hemfärd.
Daniel Beckman comments on the video track, Hemfärd:
We are approaching the end of the album, and it is time to commence the homeward journey. The second to last song of the album, HEMFÄRD, depicts the long and winding way back to hearth and home; the final toiling journey to safety and warmth. There is a sense of relief and hope, but also an enveloping mournfulness over lives lost and hardships endured. The song illustrates an approaching solace and a longing for peace and rest.
A concept waiting years to emerge, URFERD officially saw the light of day in late 2020.
The first album “RESAN” will be released on BLACK LODGE RECORDS in 2022, and is a musical odyssey in both a literal and figurative sense. The album takes the listener on a journey through dark and olden nordic forests; where strife and hardships follows in our steps, yet where the beauty and vastness of the solemn nordic landscape persists and permeates. From the album opening’s depiction of a serene morning’s dawn, to the closing track’s respite of a hearth at nightfall, RESAN traverses a multitude of captivating musical landscapes and themes throughout its eight songs. URFERD signifies the beginning of a new and additional musical chapter for its founder and sole member, Daniel Beckman (TWILIGHT FORCE, AGES), and brings a refreshing new perspective to the genre, challenging the boundaries of dark atmospheric folk music.
“Resan” is now streaming and available on CD and LP.
For fans of: Wardruna, Heilung, Forndom, Myrkur, Garmarna, Loreena McKennitt
