KING OF ASGARD reveal guest musicians and set release date for new album
Swedish Viking Metallers KING OF ASGARD made an astonishing impact on the scene with their debut album Fi'mbulvintr, released in 2010. After playing a bunch of festivals and club shows in 2010 and 2011, KING OF ASGARD have now finished recording their second album ...to North at the infamous Sonic Train Studios with engineer Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) at the helm.
…to North will be released July 27th/30th via Metal Blade Records as a Digi-CD and on vinyl!
The album will feature two guest musicians. Comments the band: "First out is female vocalist Heléne Blad whom did a guest appearance on "Fi'mbulvintr" as well. This time around she's present on the album opener, "The Nine Worlds Burn", doing an epic folk inspired vocal part. She's been a longtime friend of the band and is a professionally schooled folk singer et cetera. She was also once, for a short while, the keyboardist of the KING OF ASGARD predecessor Mithotyn. The second appearance on "…to North" presents the extremely talented guitarist Jimmy Hedlund. Yet another friend known from bands such as Falconer and Supreme Majesty. He shreds two guitar solos on the song "Gap of Ginnungs". Least say, amazing stuff and truly breathtaking!"
