to everyone who came and saw us in Ceske Budejovice, Prague and Ostrava, it was the most epic journey of our lives (so far)! Also a big thank you to all the bands who were with us on this trip, especially Grimner , Svaskalver and Warbell! We hope we will see you all again soon! (Picture shamelessly stolen from Grimner)
They are warnings, promises; of ecstatic moments and days-to-twilight-to-dawn, and of that weird state of mind you may find yourself in at four in the morning when you are squeezing the last little juices out of “just a chill evening with some friends”.
Skymning has been heard for ninety days; now it can also be held! For 150 kr (SEK), you can get your very own copy of the album to listen to, pose with, decorate your infant’s mobile with, and generally become the coolest kid on the block with!
So let your lips flutter like sparrow’s flight of what you have read, get on to www.midvinterblot.com/merch and fill that hole of Skymning-not-having today!
Keep Folkin’ and Trollin’!
In the summer of 2015, “Gryning” finally saw the light of day; blinking hesitantly, it quickly made itself at home, finding a spot to grow and frolic; we were happy for it, glad and excited – the little EP had been long overdue, and it brought with it a dawning realisation that we had something to say, that Midvinterblot was bringing something exciting to the scene.
And with that, we knew that Gryning’s larger sibling was on its way. We had a year of self-reflection, re-definition, and development where we honed our skills, pinpointed our goals, and added new threads of inspiration. The result is ready to meet you on this day – on the day of mid-winter solstice, in the twilight moments of the year, “Skymning” is here. With Skymning, Midvinterblot wishes you to experience the same energy and power as you have come to expect, only with more complexity, more awareness, and with a grander artistic pathos. We brought together an album inspired by fairy tales, folklore, and long, happy nights, and now we invite you to share in our creation.
On this day, the Twenty-First of December, the year Two Thousand and Sixteen – a year of twilight – we, Midvinterblot, are proud to release Skymning; please enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!
