King Of Asgard Posts "The Runes Of Hel" Music Video

Swedish Viking black metal-tinged act King Of Asgard is set to release third album "Karg" on July 22nd, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available at this location.

Today King Of Asgard debuts a new video from the record for the song "The Runes of Hel." Tune in below, thanks to Decibel Magazine. The video was directed by Rickard Moneus, and the band comments:

"'The Runes of Hel' was shot at the location of Vadstena Castle, inside one out of four circular cannon turrets. Vadstena Castle is a former Royal Castle and fortress built by King Gustav I of Sweden (Gustav Vasa) in 1545. Vadstena being the city where both Karl and Jonas were born and forged. Somewhat the perfect place for a video to be shot. Thus, one night in May, the key to the city of Vadstena was lent to King of Asgard. A long and late evening, in authentic setting with history's rugged wing beats embracing. Breathing the past and standing on undisturbed soil among ghouls and phantoms. A location harsh, barren and cold as carved for the finalization of 'The Runes of Hel!'

"As in customary and traditional arrangement Rickard Monéus (1897.se), our true companion in arms, handled the photography and the completion of this piece. Assisted by our fellow thrall Petter Fredriksson. Lean back and soak yourselves, as we present to thee; 'The Runes of Hel!'"
