Video premiere: Vanir “Fall of Arkona”

Danish melodic death metal band Vanir premieres a new lyric video ahead of the release of the new album.

With the track “Fall of Arkona”, the Vanir once again digs deep into Scandinavian history. The siege of Arkona was a short eight-day siege between the Danish and Pomeranian forces under Valdemar I and the Wendish forces of the temple fortress of Arkona. It resulted in a decisive victory for the Danish forces, after which the rest of Rügen surrendered. After the battle, the Danes destroyed the large statue of the Wendish god Svantevit.

Vanir is one of Denmark’s most prominent melodic death metal bands. Since the band’s inception, it has released six full-length albums. Now, they’re ready to unleash their seventh beast, “Epitome”. The theme of this new opus is the Danish Middle Ages. The core of the album’s theme is the throne and the battles fought to keep it or to cement its power.

“Epitome” will be released via Mighty Music on 16th February.
