It was back to 2002 when Modsognir had vision of the band which was going to play music where was influences from viking and folk metal. First songs were played at the January 2002 but through the many difficulties and some people leaving from the band, the thing was really getting started in the summer 2003.
The first demo ”YÖ JAHTI” was released in the year 2005. All the copies were sold at the world wide. First demo was really primitive and we were still learning the whole thing.
The second demo ”AURINGONKEHRÄ” was released in the year 2006. The whole thing was getting a little more serious and we concentrated on this one. We managed to get Tonmi Lillman to mix our demo and he is really pro at that. So it sounded really great. The demo was success and it sold all the copies.
At the beginning of the year 2006 was going to change the whole band. It was really hard time to all of us because the singer and founder of the band Teemu "Modsognir" Ollikainen slept away… R.I.P.
It was hard to make decision whether finish or continue. But the band was going to continue ´cause it would have been Teemu´s wish. So it was time to Tipi to step up and the whole thing was getting a new turn.
Now Heorot and Stygian Crypt Productions have crossed paths to release first full-length album called Ragnarök. This record is dedicated in loving memory of Teemu “Modsognir” Ollikainen.
