"Ða bisena", or "The demos", is a double disc compilation featuring all three Ildra demos plus unreleased tracks. 19 tracks of classic pagan black metal, spanning over 100 minutes of playing time.
The material here ranges from raw and primitive black metal, folkish interludes and majestic Anglo-Saxon war hymns.
The two discs are accompanied by a 16-page booklet including most original lyrics as well as their modern English translations. A lot of work went into preparing and producing this mammoth double disc title, the audio mastering using the original mixes, the layout, modern translation of the lyrics, etc, to make this a worthy overview of the early days and first outputs of the band, leading up to the "Eðelland" album, which has become nothing short of a classic release by now.
Layout and graphics by J.S. and Ildra;
Audio mastering and re-mastering by Herjann at Tuianti Studio.

"Krigsdøger" is one of the best black metal releases I had the pleasure to listen to over the last months. It spreads the pioneer spirit from the 90s, it is rough and melodic at the same time and even the sharp sound reminds me at some Grieghallen classics. Quite unique and full of black metal hits! Listen for example to "En pålagt byll" and decide for yourself. H.L.
