Sweden's Last Kingdom offer a pagan and mythology enriched album with "Chronicles of the North". The lyrical theme of the album is based upon Norse legends & myths & takes the listener to the fjords of Sweden & up to the entrance of Valhalla. The band offers up solid power metal with a bit of symphonic and speed metal thrown in for good measure. Vocally the album was decent, not enough screams and wails for my taste, having solid vocals throughout. The guitars offer a blend of speed, technicality and melody that meld well with the well timed & rapid paced bass and drum lines. Definitely worth checking this out if you can get a hold of it.
