Epic Northern European metal song!

Much prefer this band to say….Amon Amarth who I know are very popular but they don’t sound Nordic to me, just a metal band with Viking lyrics/imagery etc.

But hey that’s just my opinion!

amazing version, as much as I like Harald Foss and the traditional versions this perfectly captures a mystical Norse atmosphere. Not just better than Amon Amarth, this is better than Wardruna as well, would love to hear Enslaved explore this sound more…

Same…are you aware of any other songs they’ve done that are somewhat similar? The song Havenless is a bit similar in some respects.

I had this song playing on repeat going up the mountain I posted about earlier haha. Strong winds and heavy rain, walking up a mountain and listening to this is heaven…..or rather Valhalla!

Part 1 of my pictures of our little trip today to the Breccon Beacons.

Went to see the Afon Llia (stream/river), there’s a certain spot I’ve been going to since I was young and the tradition was apparently started by my Great Grandad…to go to that specific spot of that stream in that valley.

After went to the Maen Llia Druid stone and then walked up to the top of the mountain opposite, the Fan Nedd which had a sort of Cairn at the top.

I think it was better the weather went a bit crap…added to the atmosphere and felt more northern :)
