Swedish Vikings Grimner's mixture of folk and Metal incorporates catchy melodies, folk instruments and heavy riffs into their own aggressive Metal. With their dynamic and captivating music, with lyrics sung in Swedish, and looking like they have recently arrived from a fantasy world, they have taken enthusiasts of both Metal and folk music by storm.

Grimner's lyrics revolve around norse mythology, folklore, historical adventures of Vikings and life in the same era. With some songs dark and brooding; others fast, jovial and folkish, Grimner's music is as awesome as it is entertaining.


This year the band celebrate their tenth anniversary and have released a new full-length album, 'Vanadrottning', on Despotz Records. This album gives a new touch to their discography: a more heavy, powerful and rhythmic sound, together with a fantastic voice brought by their new member, Martin. It's a dynamic, fresh and thrilling album where the band are pushing the boundaries and taking the music to a new level.

With 'Vanadrottning' and their tenth anniversary celebrations, the Grimner Vikings continue their journey towards new adventures.
