SKÁLMÖLD Releases Third Single and
Live Video, “Árás” | Watch HERE!

New Release Date Announced for Live Album – October 16, 2020

10 Year Anniversary – Live In Reykjavík | Pre-Order NOW!

Viking Metal giants SKÁLMÖLD will release their second live album and their first as a solo band, 10 Year Anniversary – Live In Reykjavík, on its new release date of October 16, 2020 via Napalm Records.

Today, the six-piece reveals the third video taken off the new live album:
“Árás” leads all the way back to SKÁLMÖLD’s origins in January 2010, when they recorded their first demo on music cassette, which included only two songs. Ten years later, the Icelanders are on stage at the three days in a row completely sold out Gamla Bíó in their hometown of Reykjavík, celebrating their jubilee with their most dedicated fans.

Menacing vocals, fast riffs and protruding drums underline the impressive evolvement the band took since their first demo – clearly audible and viewable on their new live album, 10 Year Anniversary – Live In Reykjavík.

SKÁLMÖLD on “Árás”:
“The third track we present to you from our upcoming live album is ‘ÁRÁS’. This song has always been special to us. It is from our debut album and was one of the very first songs we ever wrote. It has been an integral part of our setlist throughout the years. And in a live environment is where it is at its best, with its slow build-up and big choir parts. It is safe to say that this one is very dear to us. We love it and hope you do as well.
Skál!”

10 Years of Pure Viking Spirit – Live On Stage in Reykjavik

Three consecutive sold-out shows at the Gamla Bíó in their hometown of Reykjavík were the adequate setting to celebrate the 10th anniversary together with their devotees. 10 Year Anniversary – Live In Reykjavík transports a mythical atmosphere directly into their fan’s homes.

SKÁLMÖLD on 10 Year Anniversary – Live In Reykjavík:
“In late 2009 we started SKÁLMÖLD. Nothing serious. Was just supposed for the pure fun of meeting up once in a while to play some metal music. Fast forward 10 years and we are celebrating the release of 10 YEARS OF SKÁLMÖLD – Live in Reykjavík. Recorded in the heart of Iceland’s capital at one of our 3 amazing sold out shows. Here is SKÁLMÖLD in its purest form – on stage, feeding on the energy of our beloved fans. We feel really proud and happy to present this to you. Enjoy!”

Starting off with their chant-worthy song “Heima”, SKÁLMÖLD had concert-goers screaming along from the first second. Quickly transforming into “Árás”, fans almost immediately got to see the wild side of the band which manifests in menacing vocals, fast riffs and protruding drums. SKÁLMÖLD classics, like the story of Loki’s son, “Narfi”, and just how dangerous and manipulative Loki’s children truly are, were essential for the setlist. “Niðavellir”, the obscure home of the dwarves, tells the story of tombs and caves, underlined with propelling drums and heavy rhythms. This is pure Viking Spirit!
