Guest review by
The first Viking metal band from Iceland, hell yeah finally!!!

Those were my thoughts when I first heard of this band. Then I took a look at the line-up. No one is a member of a metal band, no one has played in a metal band, and the closest to come to that is the soloist. Well I went to buy the album anyway as soon as it was in stores in Iceland, it was already sold out. I didn't get a CD since I gave up trying to get one and just bought it digitally, yeah I know lazy and so not kvlt.

Beast beast beast
a true epic masterpiece
fell in love with it after a few tries because it wasn't easy to enter such real of epic coldness.
Truly a must have for all viking-metallers
Iceland, thank you for giving us Skalmold

Indeed... A hell of a band and album. The clean vocals noted in the first two tracks are better than most in metal. The vocals usually have a punky rhythm witch is offsetting but other than that it's nothing more than a masterpiece of folk-raping metal.

Surprisingly good stuff! I voted for this album in the folk category of 2010 MS awards

Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one, and they all stink.

I first heard the song Kvaðning on a playlist and wow what a song. This album does not disappoint either
