The Swedes King Of Asgard return this year with Karg, their third album and successor of ...To North. It will be released the 22nd of July, 2014 via Metal Blade Records and as of now you can stream the first single "The Runes Of Hel," available below. Is the album opener a good start?

Album tracklist:

01. The Runes Of Hel
02. The Trickster
03. Highland Rebellion
04. Remnant Of The Past
05. Omma
06. The Heritage Throne
07. Huldran
08. Rising
09. Total Destruction (Bonus Track)

Karg has again been recorded with Andy LaRocque at the infamous Sonic Train Studios.

Comments Jonas Albrektsson and Karl Beckman: "After well over a year of intensive writing, we finally reached the point where everything is put into finish. When countless hours of hard work and careful consideration has been completed. This completion, being our third album which at an early stage was titled to Karg, in English, 'Barren'. A word which later on came to form the atmosphere of the whole album and a sense that meanders through more or less all the material. It's darker, it is harsher and more stripped down than our previous releases. More mature, precise and well thought out. A challenge both for us as well as for the observer. Lyrically, we have come closer to our own immediate surrounding and ancestral heritage, based on old legends and tales from our home region, a tribute to our fair and historical countryside. Yet again everything was recorded and mixed in Sonic Train Studios with Andy LaRocque at the helm assisted by Olof Berggren. Even in the phase of recording we used the word Karg as a guideline... and thus, it is upon thee!"

Can't wait. Their previous record was a blast.
