Heavy metal rockers Skálmöld ripped through their album, Baldur, in its’ entirety at Borgarleikhusið. The album’s storyline draws from an epic saga about the Icelandic viking Baldur taking revenge on a demon-like creature for destroying his land and killing his family. This epic story was amplified by monster riffs and featured a killer stage production with huge lighting. It was definitely the most fun I’ve had shooting in a long time.
