MIDGARDSBLOT
BLÓTA

Blóta is not only an album; it is a Blot (ritual). It is a ritual to face your darker sides, accept them, and reshape them into a resourcerather than a burden. I kept the instrumentation and production to a minimum to keep the authenticity of itspurpose. Blóta is a raw, tribal, and honest album.This is my blót. My ritual. Now, I will bring it on stage, to perform it with you, hoping it can help you the same way it helped me.
