"Einhärjar", the new video from Swedish Viking folk death metallers KING OF ASGARD, can be viewed below.
Commented the band: "The 'Einhärjar' music video was recorded in July 2010, directed by Richard Moneus, the driving force behind the production company 1897. It was shot in an old dirty barn at a location just outside where we live.
"Spending what felt like ages in the long time kept dust was well worth the sweat and blood.
"After the barn battleground, Richard took care of the hard work to cut, edit and piece it all together in a functioning symbiosis. Now, viewing the final result we are extremely proud of how good this video turned out."

Comments KING OF ASGARD: "We worked really hard, nights and days, using both A and B studios for the ultimate outcome of our stay. Thirteen songs were nailed on track, including intro and outro. The arrangements are well thought through and the vocal tracks being laid down with a lot of thought behind. The production has a somewhat organic sound to it, simple and raw, yet allowing everything shine through and bring the production to its full justice. Recording, mixing and mastering took place at Sonic Train Studios [in Varberg, Sweden], so we've had eyes and ears to it all the way, along with the great support and professionalism from Andy La Rocque [producer and KING DIAMOND guitarist]."
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
