CALADMOR Unleashes New Epic Video For Alvíssmál

Swiss` Folk Metal band Caladmor has posted a new video clip for the song Alvíssmál taken from the self released upcoming album "Of Stones And Stars"

Alvíssmál is part of the Poetic Edda (13th Century) and tells the story of the dwarf Alvíss, coming to Thor's home where a great feast is taking place. Alvíss lets Thor know that he got engaged with Thor's daughter while Thor was away. Thor's not amused about that as he has never given his agreement to the affiance, but Alvíss insists on taking Thor's daughter with him. So they both agree to solve the problem with fighting a rethorical contest - Alvíss has to prove his knowledge about all different names of things, their synonyms and how they are called within the different mythological entities among the Nordic Mythology. Avíss succeeds in answering all sorts of Thor's questions correctly and Thor is really paying respect to the dwarf's knowledge, but what Alvíss does not know yet: Thor is deliberately taking his time as he knows, as soon as the first sunbeam hits the dwarf, Alvíss will be turned to stone...

Alvíssmál is included on Caladmor's second full length-album 'Of Stones and Stars' (out August 30th 2013) -- order here.
