“Into the Mountains is the essence of Sognametal, a hymn to Sogndal and a celebration of our ancestors and legacy. Late winter 2020 preparing for the new album, I went through my old recording hard discs and I found some old ideas for riffs that I had made in 2002. It was from a session between the ‘1184’ and ‘Likferd’ albums from WINDIR. I also found some unused keyboard parts recorded by Valfar from the same period. I could not remember these and became euphoric by rediscovering this. So, I blocked out the outside world, locked myself in the studio, and it instantly sent me 20 years back in time. I felt spellbound while working on this song. For a few days it felt like me and Valfar were working together in the studio again, and what a weird and fantastic session it was. The dynamic of working together with Valfar is something that I will always miss, and these strange days it felt like a journey into a lost time. The result of this session is “Into the Mountains”, a song that feels so pure, fresh and vital for us, yet with a great homage to our olden times. Life is a strange and curvy road.”
Spread the word, Jarle and the Vreid Brigade.
In the video, the band members can be seen paying tribute to their past by wearing WINDIR, ULCUS, AND ULCUS MOLLE…bands that were pioneers in the Sognametal sound.
