The Vikings of the Swedish metal band Grimner launches their new single, Fafnersbane with Månegarm's Erik Grawsiö as featuring singer, January 26th. This single is from the upcoming album, Vanadrottning that will be released February 9th!
In 2018 the band celebrate their 10th anniversary and release the new full-length album Vanadrottning (Despotz Records) on February 9th. This album gives a new touch to their discography: a heavier, more powerful and rhythmic sound, together with a fantastic voice brought by their new member Martin. One can expect a dynamic, fresh and thrilling album where the band is pushing the boundaries and takes the music to a new level. With Vanadrottning and their 10th anniversary celebrations, the Grimner vikings continues their journey towards new adventures!
Sweden’s Vikings of Grimner give a unique mixture of folk and metal, incorporating catchy melodies, folk instruments and heavy riffs into their own, yet aggressive metal. With their dynamic and captivating music, with lyrics sung in Swedish, and looking like they have recently arrived from a fantasy world, they have taken enthusiasts of both metal and folk music by storm. Grimner’s lyrics revolve around Norse mythology, folklore, historical adventures of Vikings and life in the same era. With some songs dark and brooding; others fast, jovial and folkish, Grimner’s music is as awesome as entertaining.
I must say that they would fit great festivals like the Trolls et Légendes in Mons or similar ones. The band picture appeals to my 9 year old son who also loves Amon Amarth and Feuerschwanz and thus also attracted me to wrote something short and launched the promo for their first single in 2018 and thus I can’t wait to get their full album! The other thing is that it’s so melodic and fuelled by their energy that you don’t think about the fact that it’s sung in Swedish and once again: fully deserves a spot on our website! Can’t wait to see them on stage too, looks like lots of fun, laughter, entertainment and power driven songs and visuals!
