Saga Of The Viking Battalion by Viggenblot

Saga Of The Viking Battalion is an October 31, 2019, historical concept album about Battalion 99 from World War II, brought to you by the metal band Viggenblot featuring Daron Olson on guitars and bass, Chris Riggins on vocals, lead guitars, and classical guitar, Richard Baysinger on vocals, lead, harmony and acoustic guitars and drums.  This ten-track album is actually one song in ten parts like a lot of classical pieces.  This great piece of work starts out with the acoustic sound of Gently Comes The Storm and progresses with heavy guitar riffs, unclean vocals and driving drum beats with Homeland In Darkness, Dragon Ships Return, the title track Saga Of The Viking Battalion, Autumn Leaf and so much more.  I enjoyed this album from start to finish and was quite impressed with this performance and its great songwriting.  This album was well recorded as well and is only available as a digital download on their Bandcamp page as of October 31st, plus you can learn more about this band and their work.  You can hear the premiere of this new album on November 2nd when “The Almighty Papa Jack” Mike Sherrill will play the entire album plus interview Daron and Richard during his “WTAU Pea Ridge Nation” on from 7-10 PM EST. Daron and Richard will also be in the Spreaker chatroom to answer questions and chat with folks.
