01. Ódn [Live] (00:00)
02. Deyðir varðar (08:13)
As a celebration of our 10 years of existence, we present the very first Hamferð-song, first performed in the Autumn of 2008 and never before published. It is built from three very different sections which still represent our music today: one part foreboding, one part violent and one part elegiac. The parts follow the narrative of a sailor over three chapters; first braving an increasingly stormy ocean, then reflecting on a long life sailing the very seas that now threaten his life, and finally surrendering to the waves. The title translates to “violent storm” or “hurricane”.
A man wanders the misty mountains in search for his lost son: A fitting story to tell during an eclipse over the Faroese mountainscape. Deyðir varðar, originally from our album ‘Evst’, was the ideal song for this event, and this is the raw, unbridled performance, delivered above the village of Kvívík on a cold morning in March, 2015.
