SIG:AR:TYR tells the Godsaga

The band explained the following regarding the upcoming "Godsaga" album :

"The inspiration for the new album "Godsaga" is loosely based on the saga of Egil Skallagrimsson, and Odin’s sacrifice on the world tree Yggdrasil. The two key words that seem to come up in these themes are "loss" and "sacrifice". 
In the saga of Egil Skallagrimsson, he loses both his sons, yet, in the poem he composes to deal with his grief, Sonatorrek ("the irreparable loss of sons"), he curses Odin the oath breaker for his great loss and misery, while reluctantly praising him for his gift of poetry and hatred towards his enemies.
Odin, pierced on his own spear and hanging for nine nights, sacrificed himself on the world tree to discover the knowledge of the runes. Odin also sacrificed an eye to the Well of Mimir to gain the wisdom of all things, and lost his son Baldur.
