New Gydja album, Ár var alda, available on Winter-Light

We are thrilled to announce that the latest Gydja album, Ár var alda, is now available from the wonderful Winter-Light label. Mastered by Robin Storey of Rapoon, Ár var alda is presented in both digital download and CD format, packaged in a six panel digipak with artwork by Midnight Sun Studio.

Ár var alda is a simultaneously chthonic and celestial exploration of the opening moments of creation in Norse cosmology, as described in Völuspá and Vafþrúðnismál, envisioned as a suite of nine Rökkr ambient tracks spread across four movements. Winter-Light describes it as an album of deep, primordial dark ambient consisting of thick, expansive drones, woven through with intricate percussive elements, unearthly vocals and atmospheric field recordings.
