The breathless opener "Ljosid" promises a wild ride, and epic choirs, Bjorgvin Sigursson's raw vocals and tough riffing immediately provide for the right Viking Metal spirit. Sorgir, the sixth album by the Icelanders, speaks volumes about the maturity of a band that effortlessly balances between respect for the traditions of Viking Metal and an absolutely unique take on the genre. Soaring melodies, folk elements and harsh outbursts remind of the chilly beauty of Skalmold's home country - Iceland, the eternal and awe-inspiring source of inspiration for neckbreakers such as "Gangari" and the gripping epic "Mara." That's the Viking Spirit!
