The name "NORDAGUST" comes from a myth, and acording to that myth "NORDAGUST" was the spirit of the north wind. The spirit was said to be extremely wise, and was supposed to have insight in all things. The spirit was also called "the grieving souls spirit".
The music of Nordagust can be described as norwegian-inspired symphonic prog – dominated by mellotron, vocals and guitar. The songs are driven by strong melodies, dramatic arrangements and the skillful use of a vast array of different instruments, sounds and vocals. “Nordagust” include a large number of traditional folk instruments in their sound. On “In The Mist Of Morning” you find Kantele, Dulcimer, Mandolin, Sallowflute, Mouthharp, Conch, Kantele, Accordion and Bells toped of by the untraditional use of Saw, Grindstone, Kettles, Barrels, Axe and Hammers.
