Description
I wrote (kind of) and recorded this as a theme song for a cartoon in development about vikings. We wanted to do an Immigrant Song meets Ride of the Valkyries meets Swedish Death Metal type thin but apparently it's a little too intense, so we're scrapping it and starting over. Don't want to scare the little kiddies! It sure was fun though... and hey - it found a home here right?

YES! I agree. This could have gone down in the history books as a 'fresh innovative take on classic kids cartoon themes'... or something. No matter - I'll just have to make the next one even better. Thanks for listening man!

dude that was sweet. where is your face paint and your funny swedish death metal name. on Sebadohs really early stuff, they would sandwich little ditties like this in between their lo-fi sad acoustic songs. that was excellent.

I dig the homage to THE IMMIGRANT SONG in the "ah" section! That was my favorite song for a week when I was in 8th grade. I hope you make a cartoon video out of it.
