Mixed by none other than the magnificent Dan Swanö at Unisound AB Studio in Sweden, “Winter’s Gate” (Talven Portti, in Finnish) recounts the compelling journey of a group of Vikings who set out to find a fabled island west of Ireland, despite the treacherous winter drawing near. The full story of the vikings is also included along with the album as a book and is translated in English, Finnish and German.

An outstanding album that champions the Scandinavian metal scene and the high pedigree of musicians it breeds“, lauds DAILY SPORT.

Winter’s Gate is available now in stores and the following online retailers:
