At the turn of the year 2000-2001 Magnus Wohlfart and Gustaf Hagel decided tocreate a musical project combining the dark and mysterious atmosphere of traditional Scandinavian folk music with the powerful force of metal. And so YGGDRASIL was brought to life.
After having released two demos, YGGDRASIL recorded the debut album“Kvällningsvindar Över Nordrönt Land”(“Evening Winds Over Northern Lands”) in 2005, which was released via German record label Det Germanske Folket in late 2007.
In 2008 the follow-up album,“Vedergällning”(“Vengeance”), was recorded and subsequently released in the summer of 2009, also by Det Germanske Folket. This year saw YGGDRASIL conquering the stage at Germany’s Ragnarök Festival, where thousands of fans gave YGGDRASIL two horns up! The year closed with both YGGDRASIL albums being released in digital format for the first time through Swedish label Grand Master Music.
The third YGGDRASIL album will be recorded in September 2010 for an early 2011 release through Grand Master Music. The release date coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the band and we have something special planned to mark the occasion. Stay tuned for more info…
