Ultima Thule feat: Bedärne Barn - Spegelbild

DIY - EP -

1102_ut_spegel.jpgUltima Thule invite on next single band called Bedärne Barn (Beautiful Child) with Marcus Öhrn on vocals. People from this band are helping in the first song called (Reflection). Singer Marcus and bass player Peter are singing and the other help is done by guitarist Jesper and keyboards player Jimmie. At the beginning you may listen to the main part of the melody supported by keyboards. Janne from UT sings the first part of the strophe and the rest of it and refrain (which is great by the way) is sung by Marcus. Second song is their Storm i Natten (Night Storm) which you may know from 30 Åriga Kriget or from Trägen Vinner. This version was recorded in 2017 with orchestra so you may hear piano, strings, accordion, kettledrums and also choirs in the middle of the song. I can´t evaluate if this is done with the help of computer or live. I like the original version so it takes some time for me to get into this one. EP has no official label (neither Ultima Thule Records nor Dim Records) so it is DIY with graphics typical for Ultima Thule EP´s. Again it is out in 500 copies (100 blue, 100 yellow and 100 black). Nice one but I like Jämtlandssången more.

Ultima Thule - Jämtlandssången

Dim Records - EP -

1101_ut_jamt.jpgNew single from Ultima Thule is called Jämtlandssången and it is out on Dim Records in 500 copies (100 yellow, 100 blue and 300 black) and it contains two songs. First one Jämtlandssången is dedicated to the Jämtland area (on video you may check its landscape https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-jxcyKzOtQ) which is historical province of Sweden in the middle of the country. Second one is called Nordens år – Odens vrål (Northern Year – Odin´s Roar). There is also official video on this song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRwa-D3rIqI where you may find shots from studio. Jämtlandssången is originally written by Wilhelmem Petersonem-Bergerem which was Swedish composer and writer at the end of 19th and beginning of 20th century. Second song is slowest and Bruno can show his vocals quality. When I compare these songs, the first one is faster and more singalong with the beginning just with vocals and guitar, second one starts with typical Viking rock tune. I have to say that both songs were recorded more than half year ago. On the cover is Jämtland coat of arms, on the back side is detail of roaring Viking plus song titles. There is no info paper inside. Both songs are great in their own way. Great!
