KING OF ASGARD
FI'MBULVINTR
METAL BLADE

Featuring members of Viking metal troupe Mithotyn, the seasoned trio King of Asgard picks up right where many of their former outfits left off on the 13-track FI'MBULVINTR. Produced by King Diamond’s Andy LaRocque, this disc brims over with a flurry of warmongering riffs (“Lingering a Sacred Ground”) and battle-ready rhythms (“Brethren of the North”), evoking images of Viking warships invading shorelines. Pummeling listeners with a straight ahead amalgamation of epic and black metal with a discernible darkness at the center of their onslaught, King of Asgard scale its brand of Pagan metal back down to the most primal denominator, resulting in an album that fans of Dissection, Amon Amarth, and Thryfing will undoubtedly get stirred up over.
