Heavy Metal Monday: Vikings

Legartha, from History Channel's Vikings.

Vikings are a recurring theme in Heavy Metal Music. Viking themes are traditionally found in Speed Metal and Power Metal, as both types tend to emphasize battles to the death and heroics. At least one band, Stormwarrior, makes Vikings their main lyrical theme. Other bands explore this as well, such as Sabaton, Judas Priest, Manowar and Iron Maiden.


  1. Legartha [or at least the actress who plays her] is on my '5 Freebie' list. I'm heading to Iceland in a little over a week...and although I know she won't be Viking women will not be far from my mind.

    1. Yes Kathryn Winnewick is hot.

      And awesome. I would love to go to Iceland myself. Have a good trip :)
