Though the Vikings have long abandoned Vinlandic shores, their blood runs true and strong still in these harsh lands. Such an example of this is the einherjer named Nordavinden and the longship he commands: Bloodaxe. No woodnymphs frolicking in the forest here, just full out bloodlusted heathen attacks upon Christian settlements with pillage and plunder are the order of battle upon this cd. A grim but fully listenable clarity is granted here, leaving the spirit of the listener frozen within its icy grip, feeling the crisp sea breeze on the face, the spray of salt water upon the decks, the taste of blood and mead mixed upon the lips, and of victorious battles past in the swirling mists that surround.
