Midway across the North Atlantic, where North America and Europe meet, is the volcanic viking island of Iceland, possibly the most metallic nation on Earth at this moment. Host Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”/Bazillion Points) surveys a recent eruption of intense Icelandic death, black, atmospheric, and folk metal bands including Solstafir, Wormlust, Kontinuum, Malignant Mist, Bjork/Carcass, Ham, Svartidaudi, and others. Know your Roots!

For a look at the roots of Scandinavian darkness, tracing the origins of underground metal in Norway, Sweden, and Finland, check out
METALION: The Slayer Mag Diaries, by Jon Kristiansen, “the greatest heavy metal story ever told.”
