Guest review by

Skálmöld released their second album, Börn Loka, last year as the follow up to Baldur, their first release, but it's not a sequel. On this album they find themselves experimenting with the more darker and heavier sides of metal. I can't say that I didn't expect them to try this (knowing the Icelandic scene).

Rating: 8 Skálmöld just revealed the name of song nr. 3 on their studio blog on their Facebook. Gleipnir is the name.

Rating: 8 Oh I'm so buying this album on my visit back "home" to Iceland this 29th, hopefully it'll be available on vinyl.

I don't see the connection between Skálmöld and Wintersun. Also, this album is pretty average, some good moments in it but overall it sounds rather uninspired.
Ellrohir - 15.11.2012 at 23:49  
  Well many ppl falsely believe Wintersun is a fine example of viking metal...

and if you say this album is uninspired, fair enough, but then Time I lies in the very depths of darkest abyss in that matter...

  I only got this album because of the song Gleipnir. That sound is so damn uplifting and then he starts grunting which I just find really funny. I didn't like the rest though, but I can't understand the Islandic language so I guess I'm seriously missing something.

Rating: 8 Not quite as good as their debut but still good stuff!
