Viking warrior rituals in poetry – interview with dr. simon nygaard

In this interview I am talking with Dr. Simon Nygaard who is a scholar of Old Norse religion at the University of Aarhus in Denmark. Simon has completed his dissertation on Old Norse poetry and how it relates to rituals that Viking warriors could have been doing. Aside from that, Simon is also the drummer in the band Wulfaz which plays Runic Black Metal; a genre of heavy metal that he and his band mate have invented based on runic inscriptions.
