04:49 - Redn1ght Closest thing to death I've felt was when I had to do some badass-level ab workouts in TKD class. xD (I wasn't as fit back then.)
04:44 - Dima We did it for an 1hr straight. Team ran a square route in a 2 line formation. The 2 people at the front would sprind around the square to reach the back of the line. It was closest thing to death i've felt but worth it big time
04:42 - Dima That's what we did for football training. We got fit abnormally quickly. Though, you likelywon't last as long as you could because you don't have a coach getting ready to let his lungs off at you if you quit.
04:36 - Redn1ght Something like what I was implying, short laps equivalent of that length. It's only good for endurance once you got basics down. :P
04:35 - Dima jogging on its own is pretty gheeyyy imo. Based on my expereience, sprint jog interval training is much more beneficial.
04:28 - Redn1ght What I've found is that doing it in short sets gets better result than long ones, like not 1 hour runs but rather shorter runs that equal to the same distance.

A follow up album to Hammerheart, very epic indeed, and with wonderful musicianship involved, as always. A worthy album for it's predecessor.
The album indeed starts out with an eerie wind atmosphere, it slowly adds up to loud guitars and depthy drums, very powerful indeed. The first song I think, is very great, the weakest part is probably Quorthons vocals, which maybe could've been a tad louder, and maybe better sang? Not sure, the rest of the song is just amazing work, in my opinion. Very atmospheric and somewhat doomish. It's 14 plus minute length seems to fly by as you sit and enjoy the music, it fades out with great acoustics and atmospherics (the wind.) You can practically see the mist.
It doesn't quite reach the standards set by 'hammerheart' in my opinion, but it comes damn close. The title track is a legendary epic, and most of the songs here really grab your attention with their victorious melodies and viking imagery. Brilliant album, even if it is the last truly brilliant bathory album.
This album and all his later albums all are not listenable due to his damaged vocals.
I like his vocals on this and especially the 2 Nordlands. I'm not hearing damaged vocals.
His vocals started gaining more textured on Blood Fire Death and Hammerheart, especially Blood Fire Death which packed with wonderful black "harsh shrieking" that really damaged his vocals few years later. His vocals became thin which can't drag to the extreme (most of the time stop half way), what a shame.
