"Wanderlust" captures the spirit of adventure among the real peoples of the migration period and the heroes of their songs. In verse as in real life men would travel far to seek new opportunities, be it new lands to farm or settle, or the hall of a warlike king where they could win glory. For some, the constant search for new adventures or new challenges meant these travels would never cease.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, ISEMNOR embarked on an experiment to fully embrace the folk elements in their music. Sundered, the band challenged themselves to craft an acoustic reimagining of a song from their debut album, Shieldbrother. With its jaunty pace and predominantly clean vocals, fan-favorite "Wanderlust" was an obvious choice. One of two songs birthed during the so-called "Isenless" sessions, "Wanderlust (Acoustic Version)" features all-new percussion and a vocal performance that will certainly resonate with any quarantined or locked-down pandemic-dweller.


Far too long I’ve lingered in these
Old and fading wooden walls
Longing for the spring to come again
And bring about the thaw

It seems a lifetime, I’ve been confined
In this all too familiar hall
The winds have been a-calling my name
I must soon be moving on

The same old tree outside the door
The same old people drolling on
This place has nothing left for me
But a longing to be free

Wanderlust calls me on
To travel far and leave my home

As I travel winding roads I
Can’t help but let a smile form
An open sky is now the only
Roof a man like me could love

I’ve crossed seas and wandered mountains
But found no place to call my own
I guess a man stricken by wanderlust
Will never find a home
