The Swedish death metal band released a new lyrics video for the song As Loke Falls. The song is actually one of the tracks from the band’s 9th studio album, Deceiver of the Gods, released in June this year.
Even though they kind of sing a lot of stuff about the Vikings, the band doesn’t actually classify as a Viking metal band, the band’s vocalist, Johan Hegg declaring that:
We play death metal. We write about Vikings so, therefore, some refer us to Viking metal, but I have no idea what that is. I can’t imagine the Vikings were into metal at all except on the swords and stuff. And musically, I guess they only played these strange lip instruments and some bongos or whatever.
It doesn’t matter if they sing Viking metal or not, these guys really rock, I mean, only the band’s latest album was ranked No. 9 on the Top 100 album chart in Switzerland, No. 7 on the Austrian Top 100, No. 9 in Sweden, No. 27 in Denmark, No. 51 in France, No. 34 in Czech Republic and No. 51 in Hungary.
