Valhalla Rising Soundtrack
Limited Edition 180 Gram Vinyl
1000 Units Pressed
Before Only God Forgives and Drive visionary Danish director Nicolas
Winding Refn had made a strong impression worldwide with his 2009 English-language film Valhalla Rising. The ålm, starring Mads
Mikkelsen (The Hunt), takes place in 1000 AD and follows a Norse
warrior named One-Eye and a boy as they travel with a band of Christian Crusaders looking for the Holy Land. Instead, they and
themselves in an unknown and unfamiliar land.
The soundtrack to Valhalla Rising was never made available to the public. For the first time fans will be able to discover the full
soundtrack to this cult film featuring a hypnotic and dark score by
Peter Peter and Peter Kyed (who had previously scored Nicolas
Winding Refn's Pusher trilogy).
The album mixes beautiful ambient soundscapes and rock infused
industrial sounds creating a unique musical atmosphere. Nicolas Winding Refn's cinema is visual and contemplative. Music is not only
decorum, but also a full on character embodying the emotions and the
underlying themes. The soundtrack to Valhalla Rising is a perfect
illustration of that pure cinematic language practiced with one of the
most exciting filmmaker of our time.1. Introduction

ThunderpussyWhat if Thor's Hammer of the Gods from "Immigrant Song" landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women? Well, it would sound something like Thunderpussy.
The quartet-Molly Sides [vocals], Whitney Petty [guitar], Leah Julius [bass], and Ruby Dunphy [drums]-do the most rock 'n' roll thing possible and quite literally fuck up every rock 'n' roll stereotype you know to be true, piercing the halls of Valhalla in the process. Think of it like an inverse Frank Frazetta painting where it's the Amazonian siren wielding all of the world's power instead of Conan (he's on the sidelines in awe). More simply, instead of Page and Plant, Perry and Tyler, and Jagger and Richards, you get Molly and Whitney. Known for earth shattering pipes, heart-stopping performance art, and a propensity to literally writhe through a crowd, Molly is the consummate ideal front-person-bold, brilliant, brazen, and beautiful. At her righthand, you've got Whitney as the ultimate 21st century axe-slinger-cool, collected, and crazy on that fretboard. Rounding out the fray, Leah and Ruby cook up the tightest rhythm section this side of Cream (no kidding).
So, what is it that turned the Seattle-based group into a quiet phenomenon with the endorsement of Rolling Stone and Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready as well as a string of already legendary performances under their high-waisted belts (we're looking at you, Sasquatch)? It'd be too easy to say it's the power of the P----
Whitney steps in, "People talk about that magic. There's some voodoo happening between Molly and I, which is like a cosmic connection. She has this power. Somehow, I'm under her spell when we're performing-we all are."
"The truth is, I feel the same way about Whitney, Leah, and Ruby," smiles Molly. "We're all in this together."
That unity drives the band's forthcoming full-length debut Thunderpussy [Stardog Records/Republic Records] produced by Sylvia Massy. The lead single Speed Queen begins with a revving engine and arena-size percussion before snapping into a muscular and majestic riff and vocal proclamation, "Long live the Speed Queen."
"The 'Speed Queen' is this mythic and magical woman who rides a motorcycle and travels around the country," explains Whitney. "Nobody knows too much about where she came from or where she's going, but she changes everyone she meets because she's that powerful. I was thinking of Molly when I wrote it."
Its companion track "Badlands" evokes bluesy Zeppelin-style mysticism with a fury that certainly wouldn't be out of place on Aerosmith's Rocks-but is completely at home on Speed Queen.
"It nods to that classic Terrence Malick movie Badlands with Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek," adds Molly. "It's an on-the-run love song between two outlaws."
Among its arsenal, Thunderpussy also boasts a song produced by McCready "Velvet Noose." Everything comes together into one cohesive and classic vision of rock music recharged, reinvigorated, and resurrected in what can only be described as a diamond in the muff: Thunderpussy.
"Being a lover of rock 'n' roll music for my whole life, you either have it, or you don't," Whitney leaves off. "If you find it, cultivate it, treat it like a wild animal, and tame that raw energy, but not too much. That's what this is."1. Speed Queen

ValkyrjaDouble-LP On Clear Vinyl With Gatefold Jacket
Valkyrja, the 7 full-length album from the Faroe Islands natives TÝR, is a concept album with a story line based loosely around an anonymous Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja-the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Frontman and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain; the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.LP 1

With Oden On Our Side (Awaiting Repress)Pressed On 180 Gram Black Vinyl Imported From Germany
Amon Amarth strikes with a stake through the heart on With Oden on Our Side, a heavier album than refines the band's patented melodic death metal style. - Blabbermouth
As if the Norse deity had cast a blessing on Amon Amarth, the band emerged with an album that will define a before and after in their career for years to come. Recorded at Fascination Street Studios with producer Jens Bogren, the majestic riffs, thunderous drums and roaring vocals have never sounded better and more convincing. A match surely made in Valhalla, Mikkonen comments on the collaboration as follows: We had never worked with a producer before the way it should be done. Jens Bogren took the band to a new level, both production- and sound-wise. Musically, this album is more worked through and, most important of all, we wrote it together as a unit. A most fearsome and deadly unit, that is now gearing up to crush audiences the world over once again!1. Valhall Awaits Me
