Midgardsblot Metal Festival – Borre, Vestfold, Norway 17/8/19

Day 3  Saturday I already knew that the weather forecast was going to be dodgy as a storm had passed over the region during the night (I slept through it I might add) and left its raging remnants for me… Continue Reading →

Einherjer – Norrøne Spor (Indie)

Every student of Viking lore and heavy metal (and they are surely one and the same thing) should be by now be aware of the Einherjer – the myth and the band. The name for the legendary fallen warriors chosen… Continue Reading →

King of Asgard – :TAUDR: (Trollmusic)

Einherjer – Av Oss, For Oss (Indie)

Einherjer is back with another round of epic, adrenaline-fuelled battle chants and out to prove, yet again, that it’s still got what it takes to be among the vanguard of pagan metal bands. As with all good bands, Einherjer has… Continue Reading →
