Tuesday Althing: Lumsk
I’d like to introduce this week’s bit of Scandinavian randomness by saying one thing:
I discovered a Norwegian folk metal concept album. I know, I know — there are a BUNCH of Norse/Viking concept bands out there. What’s cool about the band featured here today is I think I’ll be able to listen to one of their albums front-to-back. (My gentle ears can only handle the blacker stuff in small doses.)
The band is called Lumsk. I don’t know what that means, but my grandpa called me a lumsk once when I broke a dish at his house. Wait — maybe he called me a lummox. Whatever. This band (well, this album at least) passed all the criteria on my Althing tonal qualities list:
1. Unintelligible but melodic vocals: check
2. Scandinavian singing enchantresses: check
3. Fiddles: check
4. Electric guitar, bass, drums: check
Thanks for stopping by. No Thor’s Day post this week. See ya Tuesday!
