  Urferd  are  a  solo  project  from  Sweden  that  plays  a  pagan  form  of  folk  music  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  album  "Resan"  which  will  be  released  in  2022.

  Nature  sounds  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  atmospheric  sounding  keyboards  a  few  seconds  later  which  also  add  in  a  variety  of  many  different  sounding  keys.  When  stringed  instruments  are  utilized  they  also  bring  in  elements  of  folk  music  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  At  times  the  music  also  captures  the  atmosphere  of  a  fantasy  movie soundtrack  set  in  the  medieval  era.  Percussion  is  also  added  on  some  of  the  tracks  When  melodic  chants  and  clean  vocals  are  utilized  they  also  give  the  music  more  of  a  pagan  orientated  atmosphere  along  with  some  spoken  word  parts  also  being  utilized  briefly,  all  of  the  tracks  also  sound  very  different  from  each  other  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  acoustic  guitars  can  also  be  heard  and  a  couple  of  songs  also  add  in  a  small  amount  of  female  vocals.

  Urferd  plays  a  style  of  folk  music  that  is  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  Nordic  pagan  traditions.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  while  the  song themes  focus  on  Paganism. 

  In  my  opinion  Urferd  are  a  very  great  sounding  pagan  folk  music  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Gryning"  "Envig"  and  "Dvala".  8  out  of  10. - DarkUndergroundMusicZine

URFERD signifies the beginning of a new and additional musical chapter for its founder and sole member, Daniel Beckman (TWILIGHT FORCE, AGES), and brings a refreshing new perspective to the genre, challenging the boundaries of dark atmospheric folk music. The first album “RESAN” is a musical odyssey in both a literal and figurative sense. The album takes the listener on a journey through dark and olden nordic forests; where strife and hardships follows in our steps, yet where the beauty and vastness of the solemn nordic landscape persists and permeates. From the album opening’s depiction of a serene morning’s dawn, to the closing track’s respite of a hearth at nightfall, RESAN traverses a multitude of captivating musical landscapes and themes throughout its eight songs.
