Since 2008, the art of rstir lfsins breathes Old Norse history on all levels.
"Saga tveim tungum" is a two-sided story constructed around the later period of the Norwegian king and saint, lfr Haraldsson (995-1030). It roughly spans the period of his later power attempts in the years 995-1030. The albums depict the lives of two siblings and their individual experiences during the turbulent times in early eleventh-century Norway. Generally, "Saga tveim tungum" is without a doubt the most ambitious and complex story told by rstir lfsins to date. Much more based on Skaldic, and, partly, on Eddic poetry than any of the previous albums. Numerous hints towards historical battles and other happenings vividly described in select Kings? sagas and other Old Norse sources are presented, and put in relation to the otherwise fictive main characters of the story.

Entirely sung in Old Icelandic and twinned with its brother album "Saga tveim tungum I: Vpn ok vir" previously released in 2019, rstir lfsins proves on "Eigi fjoll n firir" once again its ability to produce audial quality: From ambient archaic folklore soundscapes, supported by dark chants and classical instruments, to both modern and classic Black Metal elements, the musical abilities project genuine craftmanship.

Similar to "Vpn ok vir", "Saga tveim tungum II: Eigi fj
oll n firir" was composed and recorded in Germany and Sweden in early 2018 and mixed and mastered in February of 2019 by the experienced hands of renowned producer Markus Stock at Klangschmiede Studio E, Mellrichstadt, Germany. As always, the intriguing layout was executed by the highly talented Christopher Duis of
