Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.

Description


Composers Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough joined forces to provide the original soundtrack to director Rob Eggers' newest film, the 2022 Viking-era inspired The Northman. To aid in the film's score, the two consulted musician and ethnographer Poul Høxbro for an accurate understanding of Viking music. While the two have backgrounds in electronic music, providing music for the film offered both a challenge and liberation. While traditional instruments like the tagelharpa, langspil, kravik lyre and säckpip were used to sculpt the movie's landscape, Carolan and Gainsborough took their own creative liberty to add depth such as the usage of drums, which were not used in Viking musical culture.

The VMP exclusive edition of The Northman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is pressed on 2LP standard weight Gold with Black Splatter vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing with a unique center label design based on Viking shields.. It will arrive in a gatefold direct-to-board jacket that is foil stamped and numbered along with a poster of a Nordic inspired statue from the film's set.
