: Music for Iron Edda. [Discussion from episode 115]

Tom and Ross where talking about the Iron Edda RPG and how it needed an good Viking metal soundtrack.

Being from that part of the world I thought I'd provide one.

Here is Sklmld (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sk%C3%A1lm%C3%B6ld),

They are an Iceland Viking themed metal band.  Solid metal with all the lyrics in Icelandic Viking style rhyme.

Here is the whole concert for those interested

So what other metal can RPPR listeners suggest for the Viking versus Steampunk game

For the jury I would submit the internet classic Vulgaris Magistralis by Heidevolk.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reOLeLX0Q9U (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reOLeLX0Q9U)

With such classic lines as:

"Ik bun Vulgaris Magistralis
En ik ri-j op een mammoet in 't rond
Ik bun Vulgaris Magistralis
En op zondag op een mastodont"

Roughly translated : http://lyricstranslate.com/en/vulgaris-magistralis-vulgaris-magistralis.html (http://lyricstranslate.com/en/vulgaris-magistralis-vulgaris-magistralis.html)

I am Vulgaris Magistralis
And I ride around on a mammoth
I am Vulgaris Magistralis
And sundays on a mastodont

Aroo Aroo Aroo

Another good candidate is Tr (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C3%BDr_%28band%29) from the Faroese island.

Here is Ormurinn Langi.

And translation of the lyrics.
