ya man, i just got in from climbing the backyard mountain, and could just not get that peaceful jolly sh!t outta my head :)

funny thing is though, this kind of music is actually a hell of a lot more similar to the tunes the old norse actually played than any burly viking metal ever will be

good find brother, you always provide me with some quality laughs with this column! \m/
