Nidhoggr Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Hvedrungr: Primitive.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Hvedrungr: Norse mytholgy, war, end of the world

4.I know that the name 'Nidhoggr' comes from Norse Mythology and Paganism, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in this topics?
Hvedrungr: Not much else to tell except that this is what I am interested in. Especially the parts about Ragnarök which kind of (using metaphors) portrays whats happening to the world right now. Then world will end and we will all die. When? Who knows. How? No one knows. We will probably destroy ourselves though... But since we don't know (yes... no one knows, you kan only believe) there is no point worrying. Just embrace the fact and live your lives until the day comes. You may not even notice it. It might just be like someone... just shuts of the light.

Hvedrungr: We have never played live... Yet.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

7.The demo is going to be released on cassette by 'Lake Of Fire productions', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Hvedrungr: This is my own label. Some past releases has been made. Not much else to tell. Supporting Lake of Fire is to support Nidhöggr.
