Surtur Rising (Metal Blade)

Double-decade Swedish vikings surf their ninth LP on Metal Blade into trademark waters with tales of Odin and the "Destroyer of the Universe," Surtur ("I am pure and endless pain"). Full of old-school gallop and intelligible vox, the Digipak configuration bonuses a DVD plundering three unflagging hours of live footage from Germany, a run of nights covering peak LPs The Avenger (1999), The Crusher (2001), and Versus the World (2002).
