Listen to "From the Fjords".

I find this to be impressively good.  To use a rather cliché word, it is "innovative".

Please, tell me what you think.

This is good, it`s very enjoyable and lively.
However, "innovative" almost made me laugh. (Impressions from "Destroyer" follow) I don't remember another band which is more Sabbath worship than Legend. I think only coincidence kept Sabbath from writing these songs.

I was considering the drumming (or, rather, the use of it) more than anything else to be "innovative".  I certainly haven't heard both Speed and Thrash metal drum lines in a song before the '80s.  Then again, I haven't listened to much '70s metal outside of Sabbath and (ahem) Led Zeppelin.

Sure it might sound cheesy and cliche now, but in 1979 this would have been the shit, despite the Sabbath worship.. Nice find, very enjoyable. I am going to have to look for a download of this album now.
Is this the first ever "viking metal" release??

Yes, it has been dubbed such.
