neofolk folk pagan medieval ambient Lyrics
: Hagalaz' Runedance lyrics
Hagalaz' Runedance is one of several music incarnations of neopagan musician Andrea Haugen from Germany, which remained active roughly from 1997 to 2002.
After her dark Aghast project, Andrea decided to explore the myths and magical tradition of her own culture. Thus she created the musical entity Hagalaz' Runedance. She explores the magic and spirituality of Northern Europe, bringing to life the forgotten wisdom, focusing particularly on the feminine mysteries and the goddess worship traditions.
The music of Hagalaz' Runedance has been described as Ambient Folk, Pagan Folk or Tribal, yet Andrea definitely has created her individual style. Involving a variety of musicians from alternative, medieval and folk music scenes, she has been experimenting with ancient instruments and her voice. Some songs are magical experiences, describing visions and Seidr trances (Northern Shamanism).
Hagalaz’ Runedance became very popular, even reached commercial popularity and hit the album charts in Germany. She surely lit a strong flame of pagan/goddess awareness.
