Warkings Interview

Warkings released their sophomore effort 'Revenge' on July 31st via Napalm Records. We recently caught up with Viking to discuss the bands ride from Walhalla, their message from the god, take a deep dive into their latest album 'Revenge' and much more...

"The worst thing for us is that we cannot gang up and kill it with swords, axes and spears. Quit the contrary: we had to cancel almost every battle this year. Perhaps we can fight one or two, but that’s not for sure."


Firstly, I have to ask this at the moment, how have you guys been coping in the lock-down, what kind of things have you been up to since the lock-down came into effect.

We were not in earth when all this shit started. We’ve been in God’s studio and recorded the album, worked hard on our tunes for the upcoming battles. There was no connection to the human world but Hermes showed up and told us that our warriors are in serious trouble. Not knowing about all this we entered earth and saw that a new enemy spreads all over the world. The worst thing for us is that we cannot gang up and kill it with swords, axes and spears. Quit the contrary: we had to cancel almost every battle this year. Perhaps we can fight one or two, but that’s not for sure.

On the other hand: That provides us time to speak with human beings and drink much more than we could if we fight every week. And if you're age is 100 years or even more this will be over in an blink of an eye.

How did you get into writing and creating music? Was there a decisive moment or event that you remember that made you stop and think, wow, holy shit! THIS is what I want to do with my life?
