Odin’s Raven Magic has been shrouded in mystery since 2002 when it was performed only a handful of times in that year. Morphing into a Sigur Rós myth, the official release has declared that the legend is sincere.

A stimulus of the orchestral and choral album is a chapter from the poem of the same title, in which two ravens fly over earth and deliver messages to the Norse god. The lengthy piece starts powerfully and classically stormy, making its way to jaunty, folk-tale percussion, found in single Dvergmál, and a heavy intense heart wraps the art composition up. They have told their rustic tale with great majestic beauty. It will not fail to take your breath away.
