King Of Asgard Streaming New Single "Gap Of Ginnungs"

Swedish Viking metal act King of Asgard is now ready to unleash second album "…to North," which was recorded at the infamous Sonic Train Studios with engineer Andy LaRocque at the helm.

In collaboration with Metal Hammer Germany, King of Asgard is now launching the second single taken off the new album. Click here to check out "Gap Of Ginnungs."

Comments King of Asgard on the song: "We picked this song out as the second single taken off the '…to North' album as it represents the more epic side of King of Asgard. The opposite of 'The Nine Worlds Burn' really which is a typical straight forward King of Asgard song. Gap of Ginnungs carries different elements of the band such as choirs and broad melancholic songwriting. Here we also present the second guest musician, Jimmy Hedlund. He is playing the lead guitar solo where we felt that the song needed something extra and this was his void to create upon. He did, and according to us, with a marvelous result and the circle was closed. This one is for you - followers of the King!"

The album is set for release in Europe on July 27th/30th through Metal Blade Records and the track listing is as follows:

1. Intro
2. The Nine Worlds Burn
3. The Dispossessed
4. Gap of Ginnungs
5. Bound to Reunite
6. Nordvegr
7. Up on the Mountain
8. Plague-ridden Rebirth
9. Harvest (The End)
10. …to North

Hells Yeah!!!!!! I have been waiting for my Viking Kings to give me something new. If you haven't heard King of Asgard, you are totally missing out. Check out their first album and get "...To North" when it comes out. It is going to be EPIC! You can't call yourself a fan of Viking/Folk metal and not have King of Asgard in your collection and in your Heathen heart.
