Since its start in 2008 KING OF ASGARD offers its own blend of grim blackened & slightly folk-inspired metal. Digging its roots deep into the Northern soil, the band takes up the legacy of iconic pioneers such as Bathory, Isengard or Mithotyn, and adds its own twist, spicing the well-known Nordic myths with dark folk tales from its home land.
After three highly acclaimed albums (on Metal Blade) and a short hiatus, the band returns with a new line-up and thus new-found power in 2016. :taudr: marks a new chapter in the history of KING OF ASGARD, refining its style with great passion and virtuosity, as well as paying tribute to the band's roots in the legendary act Mithotyn.
