Ragnar Lodbrok

Einar Selvik's Snake Pit Poetry

Einar Selvik, multi-instrumentalist and founder of the Norwegian Band Wardruna just released his “Snake Pit Poetry”, which he exclusively composed for the Canadian-Irish TV series “Vikings”. The EP (released on October 20th) offers an impressive interpretation of the Old Norse death poem of Ragnar Lodbrok known from the Ragnars saga loðbrókar. Together with the beautiful voice of Icelandic singer Hilda Örvarsdóttir the Ormagarðskvæði (engl. snake-pit poetry) unfolds like waves to ever new mystical heights.
