Welcome to King Of Asgard's debut album Fi'mbulvintr! The first thing you will recognize while listening to this album is the influence of the now almost legendary band Amon Amarth. Both bands share the same style, namely some kind of viking melodic death metal compared with folk and black. One will hear the similiarities pretty soon, the catchy, tremolo ridden guitar riffs, the crushing drums, the obsessive bass and the harsh and dark vocals telling the Sagas of the Norsemen.

It's indeed a nice melodic album. One of the few albums I bought in 2010.

They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody

So behold the flight of the sapphire dragon

An amazing debut album. The black metal blasts compliment the viking melody superbly. Riffs are catchy as hell. Hail King of Asgard:beer:

Too similar to Amon Amarth. Einhärjar is a killer single, though, and all the songs are enjoyable, but they don't break new ground
