2019’s astonishing musical hit SKÁLD are returning with a new album, Vikings Memories. The band, who are inspired by Scandinavian culture and Norse mythology, have enjoyed huge success worldwide with their debut recording Vikings Chant, which surpassed 100 million streams, 45 million YouTube views and 80,000 album sales. Through their music, SKÁLD take inspiration from the poetry of the ancient skalds who sang and told stories of the Vikings and their gods. Their music is characterized by singing in Old Norse and the use of ancient instruments including shamanic drums, talharpa, jouhikko and more. For their new album, SKÁLD are moving away from Earth and Fire to focus on the element of Water, responding to the call of the seas with original compositions which offer a rich and evocative soundscape. The music once again tells a story: a saga of the people of the North and their relationship with nature and the ocean. The songs recall forgotten tales of lost lands that now lie beneath frozen waters (like the Doggerland, which once bound Great Britain to Scandinavia) and offer stories of voyages in the company of adventurers and seafarers who have navigated the most perilous seas. Those ancient songs – reimagined and recomposed for a modern audience – remind us of nature’s power and fragility, and encourage us to listen to what the past has to tell us, so that we might build a future with harmony.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
