Naglfar is straight from Jotunheim’s second EP, Towards Vigrior’s Destiny.
Jotunheim are one of New York’s finest melodic black metal bands, offering a great collection of singles, EPs and albums…and we hope they can add to it again soon.
Jotunheim was formed October 2011, in New York, when Zolotoi (Guitars, Bass, Vocals) messaged Cyric (Drums) inquiring about his interests to form a Black Metal band. Both knew one another from High School. The name “Jotunheim” was inspired by Zolotoi’s love of Immortal and his interests in Norse Mythology.
Jotunheim experienced several lineup changes throughout the years with Zolotoi and Cyric being the only consistent members. In 2013, Jotunheim released their first EP ‘The Frozen Abyss” which was followed by their 2015 EP “Towards Vigrior’s Destiny”.
During late 2018, Zolotoi decided to hit the “reset button” with Jotunheim. He decided to continue Jotunheim without Cyric. During the next few months Zolotoi finished up writing all the parts and putting all the pieces together for a full length album. Months before, Zolotoi was introduced to drummer “The Beheader” who sits on the throne of another band in the “local scene”. The Beheader quickly agreed to join Jotunheim when Zolotoi messaged him of his interests. After months of rehearsals, Zolotoi and The Beheader were ready to record the full length album “Asgaard’s Nemeses Rise” which was released on December 18, 2020.
