"Der Ruf der Götter - Asatru-Lieder" ("The Call of the Gods
- Asatru Songs")
is my debut album released in 2008, featuring 15 German folk-rock
songs for listening to, and for singing along to - from the cheerful and
festive to solemn, melancholy and humorous pieces.
Songs are a beautiful way to relate to our Gods, and to build community. We are
singing for the Gods - Come and sing along!
Included with the CD
- An 8 page bilingual color booklet, and a two-sided
color inlay in a crystal case.
- Bonus: A printable PDF file with a sing-along songbook: All German lyrics
side-to-side with fully singable and rhyming English lyrics.
- Bonus: The color flyer "Enlightened Asatru" by our community, the
Frankfurt & Midgard.
- Bonus: The flyer's PDF file for printing out more copies, for passing on to
people interested in our faith.

The 8 page booklet informs with
German/English side-to-side texts about:
Asatru, the relevance of songs within our faith, the myth of the skaldic mead, the artists,
and the Asatru Ring Frankfurt & Midgard who is happy to
present this album as a contribution to heathenry :-).
ideas went into the project:
a) To provide Asatru songs that are not the
Viking-Metal/Valkyrie-take-me-to-Valhalla type for once, but about living Asatru
in our real lives, and our own times and places
b) To promote not only the listening to, but the active singing of songs within
Asatru. While the offered songs are sophisticated enough to be good entertainment, they
are at the same time designed to be easily learned and sung by groups, children, and by
people who don't often sing. Guitar chords were kept easy and will be published
with my upcoming Heathen Songbook in print.
b) To have songs you can with good conscience play or lend to your neighbor,
your work-mate, your child's teacher or kindergarten assistant, as it informs
about our faith, our gods and our community in a representable way. The lyrics
are, within the scope of our faith, family-friendly.
I hope you enjoy listening to my songs as much as I enjoyed
making them for you!
