Thyrfing  


Named for a royal sword of Norse folklore, Thyrfing are proud purveyors of Viking metal, a subgenre of metal that is relatively small. To the uninitiated, Viking metal takes mid-paced black metal, increases the keyboard role, and lyrically tells tales of Odin and, well, Vikings, thus creating an atmosphere that is less evil-sounding than pure black metal, but no less heavy or interesting. Mithotyn was once in this field, and Einherjer is well-known here as well, but Thyrfing is as good if not better than these two, and thus a fine representation of the genre.
