Epic Icelandic Vikings battle song :D

Edit: I found out that this song is actually 'two sostra' by the band called 'in extremo'. It's also in Swedish not Icelandic and has nothing to do with the Vikings :/ .

I don't know what the lyrics are.
I don't know what the lyrics mean.
I don't know if this is authentic or not.

Hmm.... even the description of the youtube video lacks information :P *shrugs* So now I don't even know what this song is called.

Well, this is mysterious.

Also, here's a link to another epic icelandic song. Its called krummi by valravn.

If anyone knows anything about either of these songs, please tell me!!

The writing style evoked a lot of emotion. Joseph Boyden was just really good at putting himself in someone else's shoes. That's the only way I can think to describe it. The book is based on the true story of Chanie Wenjack, who died try...


it was amazing

My favourite Shakespeare play so far (I'm going to read all 37 of them eventually). I felt like it wasn't violent enough for a "revenge tragedy" though.

The Boy Who Played Tiger

really liked it

An amazing children's book set in a small village in Myanmar. Very entertaining to read. I highly recommend this to parents who want reading suggestions for their children as I think it's a good idea to start reading about other cultures...
