Ever since my Mum told me about the Runes she named me after and the stories of Odin and Thor, Yggdrasil and Ragnarok; and ever since my father showed me at the age of three how to put on his Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin records, I've got the best from two worlds and Midgardsblot is a dream come true where the two melt together to an entity of Metal and Norse history. A modern Viking Blot with laughter, love and music; a place for history, reflections, friendship and insanity and a celebration of the Norse heritage.


SCANDINAVIAN METAL IS THE NEW WORLD MUSIC

The Norwegian summer is coming to an end and with it the festival season - but August still has a few festival experiences left to offer. The immense Øya festival ends today and is followed by the young, Norwegian international metal festival Midgardsblot. For the third time the festival will celebrate the Norse history and cultural heritage at the Borre grave mounds in Vestfold. Borre is the site of the greatest collection of chieftain graves from the period before 900 AD and is an ideal spot for a metal festival, because Norwegian metal is often focused on the Viking Age. Viking metal has become popular outside of its Scandinavian home territory. On the international stage the genre can be seen as a variety of world music.
