Thousand Year War to release Níðhöggr

Unleash the dragon with Thousand Year War's latest EP, "Níðhöggr" – a plunge into a visceral abyss of Melodic Black Metal. This self-released, five-track powerhouse ascends from the United States, led by Hiram Lohr on guitars, bass, keys, vocals, and synth, and Bryan Arant beating life into the drums.

"Níðhöggr" is an invitation into the Viking underworld and a bold affront to Christian philosophy. From the eponymous opening track to the closing assault of "Hammer to the Heart of Christ," the EP chronicles the lore of Norse Mythology with raw power and intense melodies. A standout moment includes a potent cover of Bathory's "Destroyer of Worlds."

Originating from Haines, Alaska, in 2009, Thousand Year War has a history steeped in blackened riffage and cult-classic releases. Hiram Lohr continues to lead the charge, now based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, while maintaining a partnership with Seiðr Jonsson of Dark Prod. Studios, Sweden, who mixed and mastered this EP.

So, prepare to journey through the "Kingdom of Nastrond" and tread where "Baldur Died." Let "Níðhöggr" guide you into an era of ruthless, melodic intensity, where the fury of black metal coalesces with the mystique of Viking mythology.
