Tuesday Althing: Lumsk — Kampen mot bergetrolli

Only two songs left to play from the awesome album Asmund Frægdegjaevar by the Norwegian band Lumsk. Here’s track 12 — a tune called Kampen mot bergetrolli — and here’s what it’s about, from the liner notes:

The battle against the mountain trolls
Asmund slays all of the trolls and sets off from Trollebotten with all the gold and silver he can find. The magical horse takes [him and Ermelin] across the sea as if the water was made of solid earth.

Witness:

Thanks for stopping by! See ya Tuesday for the last song on this album, and of course for the conclusion to this highly truncated telling of the Asmund Frægdegjaevar legend.
