SKALMOLD unleashed "MED VAETTUM", 11/14/2014 via NAPALM RECORDS.
Our 4th album is ready! The title translates ‘LULLABIES OF YGGDRASIL’ and holds 9 lullabies, one from each of the Nine Worlds of the heathen cosmology.
The amazing cover art was made by one cool dude named Kristjan Lyngmo. Just you wait until you see the whole thing, his illustrations of the Nine Worlds. It is just incredible.
The full Vögguvísur Yggdrasils track listing reads as follows:
LTD Edition Bonus CD track listing:
10. Drink (Alestorm Cover)

A very special split 7“ single will be available featuring the Alestorm cover version of “Drink”, as well as the Skálmöld cover “Kvaðning” by Alestorm.
Christopher Bowes, captain & frontman of Alestorm on their cover “Drink”, as well as covering an Skálmöld song on their upcoming album:
"Ahoy! When we found out that our friends in Skálmöld had recorded a cover of an Alestorm song, of course we couldn't pass up the opportunity to return the insult! Ever since we first toured with those crazy guys on the Heidenfest Tour back in 2011, Kvaðning has been our favorite song of theirs, so it was the natural choice. Unfortunately, the lyrics to the song are in some made-up language they call "Icelandic", which is an utterly impenetrable dialect for a monolingual ignoramus such as I...but thankfully, with the power of Google Translate and a dash of perseverance, anything is possible! We hope y'all enjoy the track!"
