EP album (CD/Digital), 4 Tracks
Label: Venus Aeon
Cat. no.: veon1016
The latest album from brothers Daniel and Mikael Tjernberg is an exciting venture into the world of Norse mythology. Blending the tone language and instruments of classical-romantic music with [more] contemporary and modern ones of popular music genres, the result is a soulful and powerful sonic experience.
“Flight of the Raven”, the first in a series of two EP’s centered around Norse mythology, showcases four of the brothers’ works in settings ranging from small ensembles to big romantic orchestras — from the intimate delicacy of Flight of the Raven, where the bird of the Monocular God is sent out to surveil over the living and the dead, to the bombastic and epic of Thundergod, where Thor’s rage is set loose.

3. Flight of the Raven (Parts 1 & 2)
