1[[quoteright:346:]]께->''Sing that song that once made life!''께Wardruna is a Norwegian musical project that was started by Einar "[[MeaningfulName Kvitrafn]]" Selvik in 2003, along with Gaahl and Lindy Fay Hella. It's based on Myth/NorseMythology but is less about UsefulNotes/TheVikingAge and more about connecting to the spirituallity of the Norse and "strengthening old roots and sowing new seeds". The music is based on the poetic meters used in the ''Literature/PoeticEdda'' and the ''Rune Poems''. The goal was to release a trilogy based on the Elder Futhark and the Proto-Norse runes. The first album was called "''Gap Var Ginnunga''" and the second "''Yggdrasil''". The third album is called "''[[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ragnarök]]''". There's a [[TrilogyCreep fourth]] coming in 2021, titled "''Kvitravn''". 께The music is sung in Norwegian, Old Norse and Proto-Norse and is performed using ambient sounds and synths but mainly with instruments that was actually used by the norse. It's as close to real viking-music as one can come. 께See also Music/{{Heilung}}, another band inspired by Nordic cultural history. 께The band's music didn't go unnoticed among some creators of modern Viking age-related fiction, as they got to compose and perform music for the History Channel's ''Series/{{Vikings}}'', and Selvik also contributed to the soundtrack of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedValhalla''.----!! "Much I know of ancient tropes...":* DarkChick: Lindy Fay Hella* DeathSong: ''Helvegen'' is essentially a funeral song. * EpicInstrumentalOpener: "''Ár Var Alda''"* FolkMusic: One of the leading bands of the Nordic folk subgenre.* HornyVikings: Averted. More like Horny Seidrmen. * MagicalIncantation: Basically all of the songs. * MoneySong: ''Fehu''* {{Instrumentals}}: A few on ''Gap Var Ginnunga''* {{Reincarnation}}: ''Bjarkan'' is about this. * {{Psychopomp}}: The second part of ''Helvegen'' could be sung by one, or a relative to the protagonist. * TearJerker: ''Helvegen'' certainly is one. It's about death and letting go. There is something special about the way they sing "''I know it all, Odin"".* TitleOnlyChorus: ''Thurs'' (''Giants'')* VocalTagTeam: Three singers at once.----
