Located at the terminus of Scandinavian electronica and avant-rock, this is the kind of tectonic music that Thor would make if he were banished to earth for insubordination and started a killer jazz band. By turns assaulting the senses like the final battle at Ragnarok and lulling unsuspecting technocrats into the sub-zero realm of Niflheim, this ten-piece clan unleashes a unique brand of controlled chaos that filters Soft Machine and Mr. Bungle through a distinctly Asgardian lens. This is instrumental pop that will please the World of Warcraft fiend and the jazz junkie alike.
