Album Notes
Eliwagar was created back in december 2006 by Runahild, who remains the only official member of this porject as she is the one to write all music and lyrics. Runahild recorded 2 Neofolk cds "And The Ancestral Pagan Flame Shall Never Fade" and "Fjellfolk Saga Fra Forntiden" playing all instruments herself (mostly flute, drums, concertina and some keyboards). She met her husband Bjørn Dahl in 2010 and he became session guitarist, together they recorded 2 other Neofolk cds "Sagn Fra Nordafolkets Land" and "Fra Hjertet Av Norden", this time with only Norwegian lyrics (while the 2 previous releases were in English and German) and Runahild got a Hardanger Fiddle (traditional norwegian fiddle).

With "Gryningen", Eliwagar comes with her first album of Pagan Folk Rock/Metal after these 4 previous cds of pure Neofolk. On this release, Runahild plays 3 old traditional norwegian instruments: hardanger fiddle, bowed lyre and langeleik, in addition she plays also flute and cello. The old norwegian instruments really give a deep and strong connection to the norwegian nature and landscape and carry energies from the past and memories of ancient ancestral tunes. On this cd, her husband Bjørn Dahl plays electric guitar, Roar Ruus Finsås joined to play bass, Wargnar the drums, Nils Ailo Sara Labba, a Sami friend of the band, plays the lead guitar on some songs and Hildr Valkyrie (Greece) is guest singer on 2 songs. Their collaboration brought to Eliwagar a real good energy and strength. While the Neofolk cds of Eliwagar have a more spiritual sound, "Gryningen" has a wilder feeling fitting more for feasts though without loosing the spiritual energies.

The Eliwagar music represents the beauty and might of nature, the pure essence of paganism, the countryside lifestyle following the seasons and concentrate on the positive energies...Runahild tries to create melodies out of the deep feelings she gets while being in symbiosis with nature...
