Swedish Viking death metallers KING OF ASGARD will enter Sonic Train studios in Varberg, Sweden with engineer Andy La Rocque (KING DIAMOND) in early March to begin recording their sophomore album. The follow-up to 2010’s “Fi’mbulvintr” is due before the end of the year via Metal Blade Records.
Comments the band: “The material for this coming release is a natural step forward for KING OF ASGARD. It differs quite a lot though the foundation of our musical roots still are very present. A natural progression of the sounds on ‘Fi’mbulvintr’! Songtitles include ‘Gap Of Ginnungs’ and ‘Plague-Ridden Rebirth’.”
KING OF ASGARD last year announced the addition of guitarist Lars Tängmark (DAWN) to the group’s ranks.
KING OF ASGARD was formed in 2008 by Karl Beckman (ex-MITHOTYN) after he dissolved his latest musical projects. He teamed up with Karsten Larsson (FALCONER), a one-time accomplice in the defunct viking horde MITHOTYN, and the decision was made to go back to their roots both musically as well as heading for their Norse heritage in lyrical approach. With creativity flowing, numerous songs were written and KING OF ASGARD recorded a seven-track demo, “Prince Of Märing”, at Lotang Studio. In late 2009 Jonas Albrektsson joined the ranks on bass to strengthen the lineup further.
KING OF ASGARD features members of such acts as MITHOTYN, FALCONER, THY PRIMORDIAL, INDUNGEON and DAWN.
KING OF ASGARD is:
Karl Beckman – Guitar, Vocals
Jonas Albrektsson – Bass
Karsten Larsson – Drums
Lars Tängmark – Guitar
