Pandrador teases new album with ‘Hvergelmir’ music video
Post-death metal act Pandrador has released “Hvergelmir“, the first single and music video in support of its upcoming album, “Seiðr“. The music video was recorded in Norway and takes the viewer on a journey inspired by Norse mythology, Old English poetry and personal experiences dressed in complex allegories and archetypes.
The music video was recorded by Fat Wolf Pictures (Robert Zembrzycki & Marek Mosiński) with the screenplay written by Robert Zembrzycki and Marek Mosiński in consultation with Bartłomiej Bardon. The costumes used in the video were designed by Paulina Pikiel, while the author of the masks used by the band is Markus Charyton. The video also featured models: Nicole Kruszńska, Aleksandra Antas and Konstancja Wysocka, while the voice-over was taken by Jarosław Juszkiewicz, known from the famous Polish Radio 357, the YouTube channel “Kieruj na Południe” and the Polish voice of Google Maps.

“Seiðr” will be the band’s second full-length album and will be released in May via Pagan Records. The album is both a continuation of the well-received debut “Ov Rituals, Ov Ancestors, Ov Destiny” (self-released) and the opening of a completely new chapter.
Regarding the single and music video, the band commented:
“Hvergelmir probably best represents what you can expect from Seiðr. It’s a moment of dramatic change in the mood of the story told on the album and one of the emotionally heaviest songs we’ve written to date.”
Pandrador is a four-piece death metal band formed back in 2015. The group established their presence in the scene with the demo “Śmierć Baldura” in 2017. With each of their releases, they decided to present a different style but bound with a common extreme metal foundation. The combination of these styles is also present in the band’s lyrical themes, which use Scandinavian cultural heritage as a carrier of the stories told – both from the present and the past.
