“Tón Leiðsla I – Hordanes Land” is the first opus in an exclusive By Norse Music series that celebrates the label’s most iconic releases. The series title “Tón Leiðsla” is a construct that means “a graphic representation of a musical vision” and depicts the creative collaboration between the artists and By Norse Music at the core of these editions.
Each opus in the “Tón Leiðsla“ series features an illustration by Bergen-based artist Jannicke Wiese-Hansen and a unique poem created or commissioned by the artists. The “Hordanes Land” poem was written by Ivar Bjørnson and evokes the cross-over between History, Tolkien-influence and Norse mythology that was behind this iconic mini-album. The layout of the series was created by renowned artist Marcelo Vasco (Kreator, Slayer, etc.).
