about

Norse EP has four tracks, bringing together a new edgier Sieben sound and vocal style: The Old Magic, reveling in the words that the English language gained from Old Norse; Ready For Rebellion, Sieben's most Punk track to date; Loki and Loki Rides Again at their most intimate and expressive.

Norse EP is the second of three digital EPs by Sieben, which will culminate in a physical, CD release in 2016. Each EP has two new ten-minute tracks. These will form the new Sieben album, The Old Magic.

“I'm loving working in this EP format, and reveling in the luxurious extra space that ten minutes gives you to explore themes and layers within the music; the 'ritual' elements of repetition it brings, and really enjoying exploring these new sonic territories.”
Matt Howden, October 2015

Track Name: The Old Magic
The Old Magic

Traust me, scamt land,
we are the same:
Heathen and fylde,
bleikr and fok.
We are the same.

Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic!
Reisa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.

Trade knot, skamt land,
we are the same:
Heathen, dregg, myrr,
drit and rogg.
We are the same.

Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic!
Reisa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.

Trust me, scant land,
we are the same:
Heathen and field,
bleak and fog.
We are the same.

Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic!
Reisa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.
Track Name: Loki 2015
Loki

I'm stone. My lips are sown.
I'm stone. My lips are sown.

'Til wild Loki tear loose from his bonds,
wasters on the warpath come.

I'm chained. Venom for my rain.
I'm chained. Venom for my rain.

'Til wild Loki tear loose from his bonds,
wasters on the warpath come.

Wasters on the warpath come.
Wasters on the warpath come.
Track Name: Ready For Rebellion
Ready For Rebellion

Burn in the blood,
Burn in the vein.
Burn in our copper heart,
grip the harness rein.

Ready for rebellion.
Get ready for rebellion!

Sear in the mind,
Sear in the brain.
Sear in our iron spleen,
steel our solid frame.

Ready for rebellion.
Get ready for rebellion!
Track Name: Loki Rides Again
Loki Rides Again

Before the end of days,
Loki will ride.
At the Ragnarok,
Naglfar will sail again.

'Til the end of time, Loki rides again.
'Til the end of time, Loki rides again.

Father of the wolf, mother of the whirled.
Embla from the embers, his blood spewed Ask.

Before the end of days,
Loki will ride.
At the Ragnarok,
Naglfar will sail again.

'Til the end of time, Loki rides again.
'Til the end of time, Loki rides again.
