Swedish Viking Death Metallers KING OF ASGARD premiere 'The Nine Worlds Burn' video clip via website of Rock Hard Germany! '…to North' out July 31st!
Swedish Viking Metallers KING OF ASGARD made an astonishing impact on the scene with their debut album Fi'mbulvintr, released in 2010.

In collaboration with MetalInjection.net KING OF ASGARD are now premiering the The Nine Worlds Burn video clip! Click HERE to check out a video packed with fire and smoke!

KING OF ASGARD comments on the video shoot: "Why look further, when one is surrounded by great artists? Again, King of Asgard teamed up with the "Einhärjar" video creator, Rickard Monéus and the 1897 crew including Andreas Edelönn. The production set up took place in the depths of a forest close to King of Asgard's rehearsal lair. A late night in May - dusk and burdened raindrops. Perfect conditions for creating works of ruin. Searching to reflect the mythological end-of-this-world theme of "The Nine Worlds Burn", Rickard and Andreas produced a video full of ritualistic and apocalyptic visuals that perfectly enhance the song's sense of dread and destruction. A result we are all proud to present. That depict and burn the crust of the earth!"

Swedish Viking Metallers KING OF ASGARD premiere second single 'Gap Of Ginnungs' from '…to North' exclusively via website of Metal Hammer Germany!
Swedish Viking metal act KING OF ASGARD made an astonishing impact on the scene with their debut album Fi'mbulvintr, released in 2010. After playing a bunch of festivals and club shows in 2010 and 2011, KING OF ASGARD are now ready to unleash their second album …to North. Recorded at the infamous Sonic Train Studios with engineer Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) at the helm …to North shows a band that has perfected their songwriting skills.

In collaboration with Metal Hammer Germany KING OF ASGARD are now launching the second single taken off the new album …to North. Click HERE to check out Gap Of Ginnungs!

Comments KING OF ASGARD on Gap Of Ginnungs: "We picked this song out as the second single taken off the "…to North" album as it represents the more epic side of King of Asgard. The opposite of "The Nine Worlds Burn" really which is a typical straight forward King of Asgard song. Gap of Ginnungs carries different elements of the band such as choirs and broad melancholic songwriting. Here we also present the second guest musician, Jimmy Hedlund. He is playing the lead guitar solo where we felt that the song needed something extra and this was his void to create upon. He did, and according to us, with a marvelous result and the circle was closed. This one is for you - followers of the King!"

Check out the first video trailer for …to North at THIS location!

Comments bassist Jonas Albrektsson on the recording process and what to expect from …to North: "The "…To North" master just arrived and it sounds astonishing! Andy LaRocque made a great job on the production and the mastering along with Olof Berggren. It's upright and powerful. We feel very proud of what we achieved on this recording and merely the sound of it makes it a worthy follow-up to the firstborn "Fi'mbulvintr". Songs and sounds came out much as of what we planned, with power and a great variety. "…To North" takes off pretty much where "Fi'mbulvintr" left off so to say, with a natural development, more varied songs and structures. It's a development of our sound which will be recognized by old fans as well as bring some new ones to the horde. This time around I've been more involved in the writing process along with Karl, which kind of shines through, giving the songs a wider perspective. Expect some very strong songs on "…To North", where epic meets with brutality! The lyrical theme this time is basically in the same vein but has different twists. Not as obvious as before. "…To North" will make The Nine Worlds Burn… and Varberg was just left behind."

Swedish Viking Metallers KING OF ASGARD reveal guest musicians and set release date for new album '…to North'! First video trailer posted!
Swedish Viking Metallers KING OF ASGARD made an astonishing impact on the scene with their debut album Fi'mbulvintr, released in 2010. After playing a bunch of festivals and club shows in 2010 and 2011, KING OF ASGARD have now finished recording their second album …to North at the infamous Sonic Train Studios with engineer Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) at the helm.

…to North will be released July 27th/30th via Metal Blade Records as a Digi-CD and on vinyl!

The album will feature two guest musicians. Comments the band: "First out is female vocalist Heléne Blad whom did a guest appearance on "Fi'mbulvintr" as well. This time around she's present on the album opener, "The Nine Worlds Burn", doing an epic folk inspired vocal part. She's been a longtime friend of the band and is a professionally schooled folk singer et cetera. She was also once, for a short while, the keyboardist of the KING OF ASGARD predecessor Mithotyn. The second appearance on "…to North" presents the extremely talented guitarist Jimmy Hedlund. Yet another friend known from bands such as Falconer and Supreme Majesty. He shreds two guitar solos on the song "Gap of Ginnungs". Least say, amazing stuff and truly breathtaking!"
