"Bloðorn" is released!
 
Bloðorn, which translates as "Bloodeagle" is a ritualized method of execution, detailed in late skaldic poetry. 

According to the two instances mentioned in the Sagas, the victim (always a member of a royal family) was placed prone, the ribs severed from the vertebral column with a sharp implement and the lungs pulled through the opening to create a pair of “wings”. 

There is a continuing debate about whether the ritual was a literary invention, a mistranslation of the original texts or an actual historical practice.

This track narrates a mix of a surprising raid on a christian monastery and the subsequent punishment of the there based bishop: the bloodeagle.
