Swedish Viking metallers GRIMNER have released Frost Mot Eld, their sophomore full length effort.
Frost Mot Eld, which features the singles, “Eldhjarta,” “Midgard Brinner” and “Res Er Mina Soner” can be ordered on iTunes and listened to on Spotify.
Grimner is an aggressive, melodic act known for their experimental incorporation of such non traditional metal instruments as flute, mandola and Swedish bagpipes (courtesy of Johan “Rambo” Rydberg).
Hailing from Motala, in the south of Sweden, the sextet began their career singing in English switched to all Swedish language lyrics on 2010’s ‘Fard’ Ep, a trend which continues on Frost Mot Eld.
When we started out it seemed to make sense for us to write lyrics in English since that is the ‘norm,'” the band says. “Shortly after we recorded our first demo, ‘A Call to Battle,’ we realized that we would honour our Viking ancestry better by switching to Swedish since our songs deal largely with Swedish hoistory and folklore.
The band, who supported Korpiklaani in Sweden in September of last year, will soon be road in support of the new album.
