Urðarbrunnr album released!

With great joy we announce that our Norse-themed album Urðarbrunnr has been released!

From now on you can buy it in both digital and physical formats:

 urdarbrunnr urdarbrunnr

The Urðarbrunnr album will take you to the world of Old Norse myths and legends. Ancient instruments like tagelharpa (Old Nordic bowed harp) were used and the lyrics contain extracts from Eddas, the Old Norse sagas.

The album concerns the fate of the gods: their deeds and the aftermath.

Yggdrasil Trembles Lyrics

Yggdrasil Trembles Lyrics

Skelfr Yggdrasils askr standandi,
ymr it aldna tré, en jötunn losnar;
hræðask allir á helvegum
áðr Surtar þann sefi of gleypir.

Surtr ferr sunnan með sviga lævi,
skínn af sverði sól valtíva;
grjótbjörg gnata, en gífr rata,
troða halir helveg, en himinn klofnar.

Þá kemr Hlínar harmr annarr fram,
er Óðinn ferr við ulf vega.

Yggdrasil shakes, and shiver on high
The ancient limbs, and the giant is loose;
To the head of Mim does Othin give heed,
But the kinsman of Surt shall slay him soon.

Surt fares from the south with the scourge of branches,
The sun of the battle-gods shone from his sword;
The crags are sundered, the giant-women sink,
The dead throng Hel-way, and heaven is cloven.

Þá kemr Hlínar harmr annarr fram,
er Óðinn ferr við ulf vega.

Nemuer is a four-member act now!

Nemuer is a four-member act now!

Nemuer’s evolution has by no means come to an end. With great joy we announce that our friend Martin Kopl has joined our atmospheric family!

As the new album is far more ambitious than anything we have ever created, it will require virtual instruments (drones and samples) and programming for live performances.
Martin has long experience with electronic music as a DnB DJ, and we are certain he will help us make the live music even more immersive and haunting.

Nemuer enhanced by a drummer!

Nemuer enhanced by a drummer!

Nemuer is evolving and expanding. We are excited to finally announce that our dark pagan music family has been after 5 years of its existence enhanced by a new member!

Friends, please welcome heartily Alex Pantea, our new percussionist with long music history and experience (especially in metal music!). Alex has been rehearsing with us for some time and for the coming shows will be mainly playing Davul (on the picture), a versatile drum having both a deep bass and thin tremble sound.

The upcoming album requires a new approach and as you will soon see, the drums play an instrumental role in it. The whole album and more importantly the live shows require more energy, heaviness, and certain pagan wilderness which we believe Alex will help us introduce.

Descent to the Realm of the Dead Lyrics (Ancient Babylonian)

Atû mê petâ bābka O gatekeeper! Open your gate for me!
šumma lā tapattâ bābu lā erruba anāku If you do not open the gate, that I may enter
amahhaṣ daltum sikkūru ašabbir I will break down the door, I will smash the bolt,
Amahhaṣ sippū-ma ušbalakkat dalāti. I will break down the frame, I will topple the doors.
petâ bābka, petâ bābka-ma lūruba anāku. Open your gate, open your gate, that I may enter!
ana bīti eṭê šubat irkalla To the gloomy house, the seat of the netherworld
ana harrāni ša alaktaša lā tayyārat to the road whose journey has no return,
ana kurnugi qaqqari lā târi To the netherworld, land of no return.
Atû mê petâ bābka O gatekeeper! Open your gate for me!
šumma lā tapattâ bābu lā erruba anāku If you do not open the gate, that I may enter
amahhaṣ daltum sikkūru ašabbir I will break down the door, I will smash the bolt,
Amahhaṣ sippū-ma ušbalakkat dalāti. I will break down the frame, I will topple the doors.
petâ bābka, petâ bābka-ma lūruba anāku. Open your gate, open your gate, that I may enter!
ušellâ mītūti ikkalū balṭūti I will raise up the dead so that they devour the living,
eli balṭūti ima’’idū mītūti and the dead will outnumber the living.
ša ina amšat ibluṭu | imūt uddiš He who was alive yesterday | is dead today.
surriš uštādir | zamar uḫtabbar For a minute someone is downcast, | then suddenly full of cheer.
ina ṣibit appi | izammur elīla One moment | he sings in exaltation,
ina pīt purīdi | uṣarrap lallāriš Another | he groans like a professional mourner.
