“Helgafjell” The Holy Mountain
As are all Ren Marabou and the Berserkers songs, the theme and topics of this album ‘Helgafjell’ are based on Norse Mythology with fine detail put on historical facts and accurate Norse Mythology findings and scriptures. “Helgafjell” is the brand new album by RMATB and is dedicated to Ren’s Father Micka who passed in September 2022. The theme of this album is Life, Death, and in particular the Norse Mythology Afterlife. The track Holy Mountain is about Ren’s Dad who lived and died as a warrior, a mighty man with the heart of a lion who now resides in one of many Norse Afterlifes, ‘The Holy Mountain’ where the good live blissfully for all of eternity.
The album’s evocative artwork was masterfully created by Terence McCann of Blackdog Graphic Design, complemented by the skilled photography of Kathleen Curran. Ren Marabou orchestrated the recording, mixing, and mastering of all tracks at Skåld Studios.”
