Tuesday Althing: Lumsk — Fagran fljotan folen

Here’s track 11 from the album Asmund Frægdegjaevar by the Norwegian band Lumsk. It’s a long but good song. Here’s what it’s about, from the liner notes:

The magical horse
[Asmund] wonders how much gold the horse would want for helping him across the fjord. The horse replies that he must sacrifice his right hand (lay down his sword). Asmund confers with his God and agrees upon this term if both Ermelin and himself are taken safely across. He tells Ermelin to gather gold in a box, while he swings his sword one last time.


Thanks for stopping by! See ya Tuesday.
