I've been on a history kick recently and I've become really interested in the Nordic colonisation of Greenland and North America. My problem is I haven't found a huge amount of metal material built specifically around this part of history, the best examples I'm aware of right now being Bathory's song Vinland, as well as Immortal's Beyond the Northern Waves - which isn't actually all that related but certainly fits the theme. Does anyone know of any other examples? With all the harrowing stories of starvation, suffering and slow extinction it's pretty rife territory for stuff like funeral doom or atmospheric black metal.

Thanks in advance!

Doomsword's second album starts with the gloomy epic "Shores of Vinland"

SIG:AR:TYR's last album Northen was fully themed around the voyages to north america and greenland, i remember it to be good!

Checking out Doomsword now and Shores of Vinland is a fucking banger. That chorus is just killer. I'm always looking for excellent epic heavy metal too so this is right up my street.

I'm equally as excited to hear Northen now too! I'll update this in an edit.

Only one I can immediately think of is the Leaves' Eyes album Vinland Saga. Female-fronted symphonic metal, so not sure if that's your cup of tea. EDIT: Whoops, only noticed the thread's been dead for about a month now, sorry.

You got the song 'Advancing Vinland Hordes - The Echoes upon Our Coming Storm' by Panzerfaust and the album 'Voyage from Vinland' by Vesperia.

No worries! I check in on this thread every week or so for new Vinland-related stuff. I'll be sure to check out the bands you and SafassThin listed.
