The Icelandic melodic metal group, SKÀLMÖLD, have released the lyric video for their track, Vanaheimur, taken from their new album, Vögguvísur Yggdrasils. The album, released via Napalm Records, has received astounding feedback, especially in their home country.
The video is initially vibrant and colourful, with shades of orange and bright yellow present until the video takes a darker turn. Undead-like characters, wolves and dragons are some of the many figures seen throughout the video, which makes for an interesting watch as the lyrics roll by. Scenes of battle are depicted during the main instrumental section of the song.

The video comes as a gift of thanks from the band, alongside news that SKÀLMÖLD have topped the Icelandic music charts at #1 with Vögguvísur Yggdrasils. This result marks the second time they’ve risen to the top of the charts. Formed in just 2009, the uprising melodic metal sextet are making a real name for themselves and becoming a well-established act in metal.
The band have made a thank you message for all their fans for giving them the #1 position, which can be seen here:
