Vithr (or "Vi_r", meaning "tree" in ancient Norwegian) is a Norwegian Black metal band hailing from Bergen, with strong roots in pagan tradition and beliefs, carrying a message of a lost age when forces of nature were feared and held in awe. Musically, Vi_r have their feet firmly planted in traditional Norwegian Black Metal, yet with their very own take on the style, including folk elements, clean vocals and a distinctly norse atmosphere. Reinforcing Vi_rs excellent songwriting with a sharp yet raw production, Hedensk Skikk Og Tro sounds traditional and fresh at the same time, portraying Norwegian Black Metal anno 2012 at its finest. Jewelcase cd w/12-page booklet. Cover art and design by Robert H?yem (At The Ends). Mastered by Magnus Devo Andersson at Endarker Studio (Marduk, Ofermod, Grifteg?rd).
