The 'Grå Hest' single is the harbinger of the next Osi and the Jupiter album 'Nordlige Rúnaskog', which is set for a release in autumn 2019.
Resounding here is the self-titled album track on side A, that combines the ritualistic echo of ancient lore within a profound pagan-folk ambiance.
The song narrates a part of the Völsunga saga, where Siegfried meets up with Odin disguised as a grey-bearded old man, and how Grani, the most beautiful steed and offspring of Sleipnir, became Siegfried’s horse.
Side B reveals the exclusive track 'Autumn', a tranquil, piano synth piece leading the way out of this first preview into the world of the upcoming Osi and the Jupiter record.

I crawled through easily 100 dark ambient and ritual pagan bands. One of the best findings on this path is Forndom. "Den grymma hästen" is one of my favorite tracks as it combines constant drone with gentle percussions and an epic vocal-scspe. I am doing dark ambient for several years now and love the intensity and mknimalism. Boa Thorium
