Art. That’s the only word I need to describe Forndom. This is not simply music, this is art. This is expressing emotions and a way of life through sound as well as the artwork and live performances. Let me copy a line taken from the record label Nordvis, one of my favorite labels, “We aim to work with musicians who build their musical creations around old native traditions, folklore & the great outback”. Forndom does exactly that. You might have heard of Wardruna before but you should definitely learn to remember Forndom.
I can’t help but to get taken away by this kind of music. It is so atmospheric and brings harmony to my very soul. I saw Wardruna live a few weeks ago and it was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my live. There is something special with the old ways and instruments that sweeps you away to a world long lost to many. The man behind the Forndom project is L. Swärd. Inspired by Scandinavian folklore he has brought forward a masterpiece that will surely calm your spirit and take you into the wild.
Longing for something in the same musical realm as Wardruna? Then Formdom’s Dauðra Dura will a must have.
