Official release in February 2013 through Eyes Like Snow
released 15 February 2013
"Saga" is the band's 4th album and by now I think we can dispense with comparisons. The Flight Of Sleipnir have become their own reference - a fact to which a large and continuously growing fan base attests.
On "Saga" David & Clay have further refined what has become their very own style, a totally unique combination of Viking and Doom Metal with progessive elements, which they developed and improved with every release.
In this respect, the new album is a consequent continuation of "Essence Of Nine", with its focus on acoustic parts, melodic guitar leads and clean vocals on the one hand, and raw Viking/Black Metal outbursts on the other, everything merged into a seamless whole. In short, an exciting and never boring or repetitive journey through a rough northern landscape, interspersed with relaxed nights around the campfire.
The album will first be released in A5-Digi (ltd. 1000) and CD jewel case, and in late Spring 2013 on double LP incl. 8-page booklet & A2 poster. Attentive fans may be able to grab one of the very limited Die Hard Editions we've planned for the A5-Digi and LP.
