Vikings-esque Icelandic Music

I came across this band several months back while I was in the midst of watching the Vikings tv series. While it has nothing to do with the series, it has a certain evocative style to it  which conjures up Vikings imagery. This is the first track off the album which has a satisfyingly dark tone to it.

  1. Beautiful. It’s almost better that I don’t know what they’re singing about. Like Cirque du Soleil’s music, I can just focus on the mood and the music without getting distracted by lyrics. Lovely!
