Skuggsja – Skuggsja
Skuggsja (or “reflection” started of as an exclusive concert written by Einar Selvik and Ivar Bjørnson and performed by their respective bands Enslaved and Wardruna commissioned in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Norway’s constitution. Propelled by the announcement as one of the headliners at Roadburn Festival 2015, the project ultimately culminated in the release of ‘A Piece for Mind and Mirror’. Although most songs are predominantly in vein of either Wardruna or Enslaved, the folk inspired ambient of Wardruna and the progressive black metal of Enslaved are forged into a brand new alloy. The void left after Gaahl’s departure from the live line-up of Wardruna was successfully filled by Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson (Enslaved) on vocals.
