THRUDVANGAR might have a strange name yet I have a gut feeling that I have an album by them or that I at least have heard a track or two by them previously. With a name that has an Icelandic ring to it I expect nothing but the greatest Viking metal from this band. I honestly don’t know what Viking metal is but this is as far away from Bathory as you can get. Instead there is more of a death metal touch to this. Perhaps a thrash edge to. But I’m glad that this isn’t in the vein of Bathory because that could have ended in some major disappointment. This is instead some cool metal in a totally different direction. Think more Amon Amarth than Bathory. I like this and will track down the previous albums too. Anders Ekdahl
