The Viking Sagas: Cool movie! Not the best from a historical point of view, but great fight scenes. Lot of blood, decapitations...
The Runestone: This is a horror movie. I didn't
think it was that bad. These people dig up this Runestone that sets Fenrir free. He then starts killing
people, and the heroes must stop him.
The Long Ships: Richard Widmark contends with Moorish prince Sidney Poitier
for a fabled golden bell. Didn't enjoy this one at all. Ships were about the only thing historically accurate. Many of the scenes were done in a silly fashion.
The Norseman: Lee Majors plays the role of a Viking prince who sails to America in an attempt to rescue his father who is held captive by the native Indians. Not a bad movie. Almost all the Vikings are wearing horned helms, and the weapons aren't at all accurate. But a good story.
Viking Massacre: Horrible movie! Couldn't find anything that was "Viking" in the whole movie.
Revenge Of The Barbarians: Not a very good movie from a historical Viking point of view. Everybody fights with throwing daggers for some reason. There are some things that are Viking though and the story isn't that bad.
Beowulf: Fun movie. Sticks to the original fairly well.
That's all the movies that I know of. If anyone knows of any more, please email me or put them on
the message board.
Richard Wagner: Mr. Wagner wrote several good classical pieces with a Viking theme. Entry of the Gods into Valhalla, Ride of the Valkyries, Wotan's Farewell and Magic Fire...
Asgard-To A Golden Age: Viking themed heavy metal. Crusade of the Berserker, Odhinn Ride, The Way of the Nordic Light, Sons of the Aesirs... Really heavy with cool lyrics. Fast, violent, Sepultura-like music.
Thryfing-Valor Galga: Viking themed heavy metal. Storms of Asgard, A Moment In Valhalla, Mimer's Well... Cool lyrics and very heavy.
Unleashed-Victory: Viking themed heavy metal. The Defender, Berserk, Scream Forth Aggression... Lots of Viking references in the lyrics. The Defender is just an awesome song. Cover even has a Thor's hammer on it.
Unleashed-Warrior: Another great cd from Unleashed. Ragnarok, Hero Of The Land, The End... Very heavy cd, but not as many Viking references as Victory.
Unleashed-Across The Open Sea: To Asgaard We Fly, Across The Open Sea, In The Northern Lands... Another cool cd from Unleashed. Really cool cover art on this one.
Einherjer-Norwegian Native Art: Viking themed heavy metal. Wyrd Of The Dead, Burning Yggdrasil, Howl Ravens Come... Cool cd with lots of Viking references.
Enslaved-Eld: Viking themed heavy metal. 793(The Battle Of Lindisfarne), A Long Time Ago, Fire, Sacrifice To The Elves... Very cool cd. Starts with a cool instrumental. Lots of Norse references in lyrics.
Black Sabbath-Tyr: Classic Black Sabbath style metal with Tony Martin doing vocals. The Battle Of Tyr, Odins Court, Valhalla... Good metal cd.
Therion- Secret Of The Runes: Great cd. Kind of a classical/metal mix. Very talented band.
Hin Onde- Songs Of Battle: One of my very favorite cds. Viking themed heavy metal at it's best.
