"I have thought about this album for a very long time" Hulkoff says, "and to finally let it see the dawn is nothing short of triumphant".
The music is, as Hulkoff prefers it, iron-hard and grandiose. Melodic and aggressive, Metal for the Viking-hearted. The lyrics delve into the ancient ancestry of the North, and the way of life and the religion of the Kvens, The Scythians, The Goths, The Celts, the Finns and the later Norse. Blood-soaked, of course. From the bronze age through the migration period and into the iron age, Fenno-Scandia (or Etunaheimar/Jotunheim) has been a kettle of cultural birth. And fierce warriors.
