The album cover is taken from a WW2-era propaganda poster illustrated by Harald Damsleth and spread by the Nasjonal Samling Norwegian Fascist Party founded by Vidkun Quisling. The original poster reads Mot Lysere Tider Towards Brighter Futures in Norwegian. Distributed by Voices of Wonder Records. The cover art is originally a propaganda poster from Nazi Germany's puppet regime in occupied Norway during WWII, painted by Nazi propaganda artist Harald Damsleth, although the band is not considered National Socialist Black Metal. Arntor, A Warrior Windir. Sognariket Si Herskarinne - Продолжительность: 4:17 . Although their very fine debut, 1997's Sóknardalr, had already shown a remarkable creative vision and no lack of songwriting maturity, Windir's second album, 1998's Arntor, took advantage of lessons learned and much improved production standards to take the group's folk-laden black metal to a whole new level.

Hailing from Sogndal, Norway, Windirs second album Arntor is considered by many to be their greatest. Arntor, Ein Windir. Based on a famous hero of Valfars home region, and the lyrics tell his story and it's easy to imagine this song is a real fuc k ing awesome song. While Valfar screams about overthrowing the governer scum we are entertained by various melodies that are almost boderline catchy but still traditional black metal. Arntor, 1999.
