A fan of Amon Amarth, are you?
Want a slightly different sound for your Viking metal?
Andy La Roque (King Diamond/Death, etc.) has turned the knobs for these Swedish
fellows who, like Amon Amarth, wallow in our Norse heritage. And it's wellworth
There are many similarities between King of Asgaard and their popular
compatriots, however, there is no reason to hold that against them - they are
not an Amon Amarth clone as I see it. The songs are epic in nature, but in many
instances slightly rougher and more up-tempo than Amon Amarth's extremely
melodic death metal.
Not thereby indicated that 'Fi'mbulvintr' is less accessible. Not so. It's
basically a mixture of well-played heavy metal and death metal and therefore goes right in with
its very melodic solos and groovy sections.
