The album Endir is a concept album that takes place in the world of Norse Mythology. It depicts two characters who die at the start of Ragnarök and their souls get separated. The man must now search for his loved one while witnessing the end of the world happening all around him. He walks through scorched grounds and frozen tundras to reach Niflheim, the realm of Hel, to beg her to release his spouse. When she refuses he asks her to freeze his heart instead so he can stop feeling the pain of having lost his love.
The album is not bad, it contains good melodies. Its limit is in the sound production: the instruments do not sound well balanced and the drums have a too synthetic sound (it could be a drum machine). In conclusion: good but unimpressive album.
Endir was first digitally self-released on December 25 2015, then re-released as CD through The Oath in October 2016.
Sigurboði Grétarsson: vocals, all instruments.
