Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Fimbultyr was formed in 2005 and the intent was to create the music that you hear today! The Viking theme was something that just came naturally after a while

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
A form of Viking black metal combining majestic parts with aggressive and hard black metal. The bands that have influenced me (Christofer) are Windir, Naglfar and Finntroll.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because they are in the mood for some Swedish Viking black metal! What could be better than drinking mead and enjoying a song about wrongdoers suffering in Narstrand?

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We’ve released one demo called "Ändlösa Frågor” and one album "Gryende Tidevarv” which where both well-received by the public and the press!

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We play live as often as possible which has been difficult since we are working on our upcoming album "Niddikter”. We will however play at Rockstad Falun 2013 together with Månegarm, Ensiferum, Korpiklaani and many others. Info at

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
They should know that we are one of Swedens finest Viking black metal bands who deliver music that has something for fans of all metal genres.

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Release our new album "Niddikter” and then head out and play!

Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
Our music is available on Spotify, Youtube, Facebook (demo available for download) and you can purchase our album at Amazon, Ebay and internet stores all over the world.
