Quarantine Interview, Part 1: Ren Marabou

I would be willing to be that Ren Marabou has watched every fictional television show about Vikings, plus a few historical documentaries. Marabou could probably get a part as an extra or as a bard. What are viking musicians called? We would know more if they had a notation system. If there was a time machine, we could send Marabou back to write down Viking music and preserve it in the name of history.

The metal statue is The Gaelic Chieftain. It’s located in an area overlooking the Curlew Mountains in Ireland. If you go to Ireland, you could take a picture with the statue. I don’t know if you’ll look as cool but you can try.

Anyway . . . check out this interview with Ren Marabou.

Where have you been staying?

At home in the North West of Ireland. 

What have you been doing during times of quarantine?

I kept busy writing and recording during my quarantine down time. I have a vault full of tracks awaiting release.  

Have you found or re-found any hobbies?

I actually re-discovered my love for skateboarding and basketball which was great. 

What have you been listening to lately?

I’ve been having a great time the last few months getting back into Amon Amarth, Tyr, Wintersun, Ensiferum, and Eluveitie. When I fancy chilling out I’ve been playing Wardruna records.   

Has your songwriting process changed this year?

My creative process has definitely flourished. Just having more time not being on the road. I get a chance to try out every crazy idea I get now. Experimenting with different instrumentation and vocal styles has become a daily routine. 

Is there any message that you would like to convey to fans or soon-to-be fans?

I guess I would like to promote appreciation of Norse Mythology and Norse Paganism.    

What is something positive that has happened to you during 2021? 

2021 has been great so far. I recently became and Endorsed Artist at Skull Strings and I signed to Misanthropik Records. I also just finished my new album ‘Valhalla Waits’ which is set for release on May 1st.
