King Of Asgard - Reveal Lyric Video For New Song

"Kvikr" is the second single of King Of Asgard's fourth full length album Svartrviðr, which will be released as double LP, Digipak CD and download version on May 28th 2021. This is as traditional as it gets in the King's court.

The band comments: "We are now revealing "Kvikr", which is the second song taken from Svartrviðr, our forthcoming new album. The Old Norse term "Kvikr" is obviously cognate to the English word 'quick' and also means 'alive' or 'lively' as well as fast moving. Those familiar with King Of Asgard will recognize the classic 90s casing into which we have put this song. It is a harsh and straightforward track, but also epic and with a cinematic atmosphere. Lyrically, we are scratching the surface of all myths that appear in runic inscriptions. We are actually living not far from the site of a world famous runic monument. The Rök runestone is completely covered in long and enigmatic texts. The meaning of these inscription remains heavily debated and the general consensus about their interpretation keeps changing. Every time that we pass it along our ways, the stone still guards its secrets, while it stabs into the earth and reaches up to the skies. For the visuals, we have once again recruited Jimmy Johansson and Lino Puro Productions. Enter the cycle of death and rebirth... enjoy!"
