KING OF ASGARD - Presents Another Single From Upcoming Album

Swedish black/death metal veteran Vikings King Of Asgard have released the foreboding and sinister track "Ammobiærg" as the third single taken from their forthcoming album Svartrviðr (black wood), which is slated for release on the 28th of May via Trollmusic.

King Of Asgard comment: "We are now closing the circle of our song premieres with the epic giant "Ammobiærg" as the third conjuring", tells bass player Jonas Albrektsson. "Once again, we visit that mythical mountain Omberg and its protector, Queen Omma or 'Ama' in Old Norse. This pagan goddess is still lingering in the plains, heights, and waters and in the legends surrounding that fog-clad mountain since ancient times. Although centuries have passed, she continues to wield spiritual influence upon all people that reside on her abode and its surroundings. This is our sonic reverence to that grey hermit shrouded in shadow and misty glow. Come join us and wander into our dark past."

King Of Asgard are a perfect example of the classic Swedish metal style that oscillates between harsh and evocative Nordic blackness and the captivating epic melodies of their homeland's death metal - being easily at home in both worlds. When the band came into being in 2008 in Mjölby, in the province of Östergötland, a part of it grew out of the ashes of that city's split-up cult act Mithotyn, while another part had moved on to form the heavy metal outfit Falconer. King Of Asgard invite you to explore the dark secrets of the Viking world and those glimpses at ancient rituals that lurk deep within Old Norse writings. Listen now to "Ammobiærg" in the player below. Link
