When we posted our review of the latest Metsatöll album this week, we joked on Facebook that it was an apt time to do so, what with the pagan festival of Easter taking place this week. But it got us thinking – rather than wheel out some lame, been-done-to-death LOL-zombie-Jesus Christianity-is-bad Sunday Slaylist, why not go full pagan? And what could be more pagan than Paganfest 2014?

Sunday Slaylist: Let’s listen to some Viking Metal now that we’ve survived Ragnarok

February 23rd, 2014

Amon Amarth by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

Didn’t you hear? We all just survived Ragnarok. The latest instalment in the long line of ancient-cultures-predicting-the-end-of-the-world trend passed everyone by on Saturday night, and at no point did Fenrir eat the world, or Odin get into an almighty ruck with the Midgard Serpent. Ho hum.
