Today we have the pleasure to premiere “Upon Raging Waves“, a Mithotyn cover version taken from King of Asgard’s upcoming new album : t a u d r :, which will be released via Trollmusic this coming Friday [pre-order]. The band are not streaming the album in full before its release, so this is how they are “celebrating” the impending release.
Check the song and what the band has to say about it below.
“With a tradition of recording cover songs the King now, on : t a u d r :, offer you a tune of our own heritage and past. We’ve basically been asked about doing this since the birth of King of Asgard but have instead tributed our personal masters. Anyway, a concert promoter asked us for a Mithotyn song performed live. We agreed and also decide to record it for the album. Thus, here we are presenting you one of the genre’s strongest tunes and trailblazing trademarks; ‘Upon Raging Waves’.
“Representing an important piece of King of Asgard’s past and personal history as well as KoA and Mithotyn share the similar concepts in music as in lyrical approach.
“… and with this we’re finally at the stage of releasing : t a u d r : upon a slumbering and unaware world. Unleash …the fury of the Norse!”
