Grimner: Frost Mot Eld
Swedish Vikings storm the realms between authenticity and overkill
You rarely find a folk metal band that doesn’t go the whole nine yards.
So when Grimner introduced their second album Frost Mot Eld with a video of them dressed in cloaks and fur, smeared in blood and surrounded by a bleak Nordic landscape, it wasn’t a big surprise. Even better, one of the guys, Johan ‘Rambo’ Rydberg, headbangs while playing the flute. So if you want folk with a touch of overkill, Grimner are worth checking out.
