All music by Ivar Bjørnson. Lyrics by Grutle Kjellson and Ivar Bjørnson.

A video was made for "Thoughts Like Hammers", directed by Jérôme Siegelaer.

Released in Europe on September 28 and in North America on October 9th via Nuclear Blast Records.


According to Ivar Bjørnson, "RIITIIR" (occasionally typeset as "RIITIIЯ") is a "self-made "Norse-ified" version of the words "rites", "rituals". "RIITIIR" = "The Rites of Man", to put it in a formulaic and easy way".

Recording information:

Recorded in Bergen, Norway at Duper Studios, Earshot Studios, Solslottet Studios, and Peersonal Sound.
