As soon as I heard their first song, Run, I immediately fell in love. With their typical instruments of Scandinavian music, their beautiful outfits and their singings mixing power and melody, Skald transports us with them in Scandinavian culture and Nordic mythology, which compose the texts of their songs. Songs like Run, Yggdrasil, Odinn, O Valhalla, Fluga, or Niu, have become my favorites.
On February 20th, in Paris, I had the good fortune to be able to see them in concert for their great premiere, being very well placed in the first rank. For that, I went to Paris in the early afternoon and waited all afternoon in front of the room. Well, the wait has been well worth it. From the first moments of the concert, we are transported into the medieval world and the Vikings, and I enjoyed every second. I was so engrossed in the concert that I did not see the time pass and I wish it would last longer. The group did us the honor to play their entire album. The audience was numerous and seduced, and it was a real triumph for Skald at this concert. And frankly, they deserve it. Skald is a must-see group and deserves their growing success.
After the concert, I could not resist going to the merch, and there too, it was a success of the sales of albums, t-shirts and other goodies. Obviously, I bought a t-shirt, the album, which I then get autographed by the members of the group, and also a photo with them. They were so nice and open-minded, and seeing them smiling and happy of the success of the concert was really great. Once again, a group to see, and I thank them again for this concert that I will never forget.
Proud they are French!
