Thyrfing reveal details for upcoming full-length

Swedish Black Metal vikings Sweden Thyrfing will be releasing their next full-length album on the 27th of August through Despotz Records. The new album, which is titled "Vanagandr", will be the band's first release of any kind since 2013, and they recently revealed the details for the tracklist, cover art and available formats via their Facebook page.

The complete tracklist for the new album is as follows:

  1. Döp Dem i Eld
  2. Undergångens Länkar
  3. Rötter
  4. Fredlös
  5. Järnhand
  6. Håg och Minne
  7. Träldomsord
  8. Jordafärd

The band already made music videos for the tracks "Döp Dem i Eld" and "Jordafärd", which were uploaded to the label's YouTube channel in March and May respectively:

Thyrfing was formed in 1995 in Stockholm, and their lyrical themes and aesthetics are strongly rooted in Nordic mythology. The band's name itself refers to a legendary sword, central to the Tyrfing Cycle of poems, and is visible in the band's logo. "Vanagandr" is an alternative name for the apocalyptic wolf Fenrir, and is depicted in the album's cover art, which was designed by prolific Swedish artist Niklas Sundin of Dark Tranquility fame:
