  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

There is something that has been bugging for so long. I have been living in Sweden for 3 years now and still could not come across this.
There is this awesome fiddle music that has to do with Scandinavia(mostly Norway perhaps) but I can not find a general name for the genre or a band that spesifically does this music.
The ones with this "dark" feeling to it rather than fast tunes.
The intro music for runemaster has this like from around 8 second in the intro video. And what the hell is that instrument? Any bands you can direct me to?!?!

Feel like this is a bit of a random topic but I mean it does relate to Scandinavian folk and hence the game in a way :)


edit 1: right after making the thread I came across this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Owlhnsh75o4
Hardingfele is it called?

edit 2 :aaaand I came across this instrument, Nyckelharpa. Things are settling.

A few bands, most of whom are folk metal though:
Corvus Corax - Ragnarök
German folk inspired by medieval scandinavia/norse pagan themes.

Lumsk - Trolltind
Norwegian folk band, mostly relating to norwegian folk tales than norse paganism.

Wardruna - Fehu
Norwegian "dark" folk largely revolving around norse spiritualism.

Tyr - Hail to the Hammer
Faroese folk metal band, singing in a variety of languages (faroese, norwegian, old norse, english) some of whom are faroese folk songs (like Lokka Tattur, or Loke's Tale).

Annbjørg Lien - Loki
Norwegian folk musician playing the hardingfele (hardanger fiddle).

Used to be a metalhead myself for a long time. Folk metal does not really give the same feeling on this thing though. Maybe what I am looking for is not a style on its own but just a part of the Scandinavian(mainly Norge) folk music.

That Wardruna is cloer to what I am looking for I think*

edit: Seems like a man named Hans W. Brimi is the way to go

It actually isn't a nyckelharpa, according to the composer. It is a very similar instrument though, but I can't remember what he said it was. :C

You had it right the first time. It's a Hardanger fiddle (Hardangerfela in Swedish).


Yep, its Norweigan hardanger fiddle... or Hardingerfele. I used a norweigan hardingfele player called Britt Pernille Frøholm.

Its the same instrument that was used for the Rohan theme in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. One of my favourite instruments and often very beautifully crafted instruments.

Oh and the music in the Runemaster trailer is cut, that song is closer to 5 mins long.

There's also band Gjallarhorn. The members come from Swedish speaking part of Finland but the music is mainly Swedish. Sometimes they use quite eccentric instruments like didgeridoo.

[video=youtube;9mj83glvgdk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mj83glvgdk[/video]

For songs with "dark" feeling I don't know more than metal bands and Wardruna. Here's Glittertind for example:

[video=youtube;oJ0TcH7Ix-s]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJ0TcH7Ix-s[/video]

Harald Foss has nice arrangements of old (medieval) Viking balads and also check Vikingskog's channel on Youtube, he's got a large collection of Scandinavian (mainly Norwegian) songs.

Speaking of culture, and I realize this is tangental, but it's top of mind for me since I just went today. I was at the Swedish Institute of America in Minnesota, and they have a fantastic Scandinavian bistro (Fika) led by a cool chef, Dustin Thompson. They were playing some cool Scandinavian folk music, which totally put me in the mood for Runemaster. Dustin looks like a Paradox player to boot (maybe an outreach opportunity).
