Yggdrasil

A

t the close of 2000 Magnus Wohlfart (Vocals/Guitars) and Gustaf Hagel (Bass/Back. Vocals) formed a project combining the dark and mysterious atmosphere of traditional Scandinavian folk music with the force of metal.

After releasing two demos, Yggdrasil recorded their debut, Kvällningsvindar Över Nordrönt Land (Translation: Evening Winds Over Northern Lands; 2005), released on the German label Det Germanske Folket in late 2007.

In 2009 the follow-up, Vedergällning (Translation: Vengeance), arrived. Later that year, Yggdrasil was featured on stage at Germany's Ragnarök Festival. Swedish label Grand Master Music licensed the band's first two albums for first release in digital format.

Following a split with the German label, the band focused on the next album, Irrbloss (Translation: Will-o-wisps). The album was completed in April of 2011, along with their previous albums as full deal with Grand Master Music

Footnote: Yggdrasil is the Norse 'Tree of Life', a mythological Ash tree that holds the nine 'realms' of existence by which humans occupy the center one and the Gods are at the top in 'Asgard' (naturally).
