Swedish Viking Metallers KING OF ASGARD made an astonishing impact on the scene with their debut albumFi’mbulvintr, released in 2010. After playing a bunch of festivals and club shows in 2010 and 2011, KING OF ASGARD are now ready to unleash their second album …to North. Recorded at the infamous Sonic Train Studios with engineer Andy LaRocque (KING DIAMOND) at the helm …to North shows a band that has perfected it’s songwriting skills.
In collaboration with Rock Hard Germany KING OF ASGARD are now premiering the The Nine Worlds Burn video clip! Click HERE to check out a video packed with fire and smoke!
KING OF ASGARD comments on the video shoot: “Why look further, when one is surrounded by great artists? Again, King of Asgard teamed up with the “Einhärjar” video creator, Rickard Monéus and the 1897 crew including Andreas Edelönn.
The production set up took place in the depths of a forest close to King of Asgard’s rehearsal lair. A late night in May – dusk and burdened raindrops. Perfect conditions for creating works of ruin. Searching to reflect the mythological end-of-this-world theme of “The Nine Worlds Burn”, Rickard and Andreas produced a video full of ritualistic and apocalyptic visuals that perfectly enhance the song’s sense of dread and destruction.
A result we are all proud to present. That depict and burn the crust of the earth!”
