Formed in Iceland 2002 as the solo project of Einar Thorberg, also known as Eldur (Potentiam/Curse/Thule), with the main purpose of putting one of the most important Ásatrú literature; Völuspá, into musical form to honor the old ways. This was done in the form of a trilogy. In 2003 the debut was already out through No Colours Records entitled "Völuspá part I: Thors Anger". Due to this being a side project at the current time, the second album "Völuspá part II: The Arrival of Fenris" did not hit the scene until in 2007. This album got the FORTÍÐ name and its fanbase growing. In late 2008, Eldur moved to Norway to finish the last part of the trilogy; Völuspá part III: Fall of the Ages. FORTÍÐ is however far from laying down the sword here. This 7 year old solo project that had only included guest musicians, has now become a band.
