King Of Asgard Inks Deal With Metal Blade Records

Swedish folk metallers King of Asgard have officially signed to Metal Blade Records. King of Asgard was formed in 2008 by Karl Beckman after dissolving his latest musical projects. The band recorded their 7-track demo "Prince Of Märing" at Lotang Studio that finally led to the deal with Metal Blade Records. In late 2009 Jonas Albrektsson joined the ranks on bass to strengthen the line-up.

King of Asgard are busy recording their as-yet-untitled debut album at Sonic Train Studio with Andy La Rocque (KING DIAMOND) at the helm. The band commented on the record deal with Metal Blade: ”King of Asgard are very proud being signed under the banners of Metal Blade Records. Releasing records under such influential label will be an honour and we feel our future collaboration will be nothing but grandiose. We are very keen on seeing what this can bring us. So teaming up with Brian, Andreas and the rest of the Blade-staff is something we’re easily throwing ourselves into and we’re eagerly devoted on getting our debut out and heads rolling. Lets see if we can create a winter of three!"

Two King of Asgard demo tracks can be heard via the band's MySpace page.
