The Daniel Beckman‘s Folk Metal project Urferd publish the official lyric video for “Vaka,” the first track from the debut album “Resan.” Watch the video through the YouTube player below.
The man behind the project, Daniel Beckman comments: “VAKA (vigil) portrays loss, resolution, and perpetuity. The song takes place towards the end of the album, where strife and battles have come and gone. It is a time of mourning, but also reverence – for where one life ends, another will take root. Let VAKA’s initial woeful drones immerse you, and drift along its trail unto an eventual cascade of glowing solace and fortitude.”
A concept waiting years to emerge, Urferd officially saw the light of day in late 2020.

The first album “Resan” will be released on Black Lodge Records in 2022, and 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. 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.
“Resan” is set for release on April 15, 2022.
