2021-05-31 (Through Niflheim to Valhalla Edition Vol. 4)

To Valhalla, motherfuckers and motherfuckerettes! Emo-goddamn-clew to the 4th volume of the Through Niflheim to Valhalla Edition of Monday Morning Aural fuckin’ Sex! Nearly 3 ½ hours of fantastic nordic folk, viking & power metal is ahead of us this week. No doubt gripes could be made about the groups that seem or are too different from the rest, but I dunno. Maybe go fuck yaself? Try that on for size. It all fits the overall theme even if certain groups’ sounds, styles and/or nationalities deviate slightly from the others. Not even like anyone currently makes such gripes; I guess I’m pre-arguing or some shit. 


Anyway, this is all new shit, all fuckin’ awesome. No Heilung this time either. As I said in the previous 3rd volume of this edition, I’ve included pretty much their entire discography in just the first two volumes of this. There are tons of awesome groups similar to Heilung out there and in this podcast, and even though I absolutely adore Heilung, I enjoy expanding horizons more. Maybe I’ll feel nostalgic in the next volume. I’m still hyped as fuck for Hellblade II, as well. One particular track I want y’all to listen to is by Battle Beast, called Resurrection By Erection. Look up the lyrics and have yourselves a little chuckle, ‘cause I certainly did. It’s actually a cover of a Powerwolf song, and apparently also a part of a whole cover album that was included in the deluxe version of Sacrament of Sin. Looking into it, they actually went all the way fuckin’ out for their fans with the special edition versions of that album. I appreciate the fuck out of that, ‘cause I imagine making and distributing stuff like that has gotta be expensive as fuck.


Also, quick correction from last week: I miscredited my friend Shy with having shown me the magnificent Troldhaugen track called CRISPr Me Baby One More Time. It was actually my buddy Al. Speaking of Al, if you enjoyed his recommendations that I included on last week’s podcast, you ought to dig back in my podcast a little ways to summer of 2019 when I did a whole podcast with him. He’s got great taste, and I’m sure we’ll do another podcast together at some point because of that.


Aside from all that, shit, ain’t really much else to say. Yojne, motherfuckers!
