Land of Ice & Vikings

This Monday, me and three friends embark on a two week trip to Iceland. Arguably the coolest place on earth. Geysers spout, waterfalls topple, fjords weave, volcanoes erupt, mountains peek, obsidian's get the idea. This place rules.

I'll be trekking along the same lands as the vikings had during the 8th century, so a plethora of viking/folk/power metal will be accompanying me on my 32 GB iPhone. Not Björk or Sigur Rós, fuck that.

Here, a list of albums I am most stoked to listen to whilst in the land of ice.


Fortid - Voluspa Part III: Fall of the Ages

Folkodia - Forgotten Lore

Butterfly Temple - Earth

Empyrium - Weiland


Winterfylleth - The Mercian Sphere

Heathen Foray - The Passage

Satanakozel - The Sun of the Dead

Neun Welten - Destrunken

Avven - Kastalija

Borknagar - The Archaic Course

Crom - Vengeance

Wuthering Heights - Far From The Madding Crowd

Nàttsòl - Stemning

Wodensthrone - Loss

Wolfchant - A Pagan Storm

Svartby - Riv, Hugg Och Bit

Nydvind - Sworn To The Elders

Voluspaa - Åsa
