Published: Updated:

Wurdiz will be Sowulo‘s first previously unreleased album via By Norse Music. The band has recently released through the label vinyl versions of two of their albums, MANN and SOL.

The title of the new album is the Proto-Germanic word for “destiny”. Indeed, the main theme of Wurdiz will be the swing between fate and free will, as put by the band’s frontman, Faber Horbach.

“The album is about fate as the unfolding turning of events and the journey of becoming aware of one’s own threads within the tapestry of life.”

Featuring 12 songs, Wurdiz will combine a healthy variety of instruments, such as the carnyx, lyre, nyckelharpa, Irish bouzouki, Celtic harp, violin, viola, blowing horns, enriched by “throat singing, spoken incantations and powerful vocals (…) accompanied by bombastic percussion (…)”.

The album will be released on September 9th and will be available as CD Digipack Trifold w/ 16-pages booklet, regular Black, and Limited Grey 2×12’’ vinyl in Gatefold featuring printed inner sleeves and etched D-side, as well as digital format. You can pre-order any of the formats via By Norse Music web stores, where you can also find the vinyl versions of MANN and SOL:
