Asatru is a one man Viking Metal project. It was started in 2249RE (1999CE), originally with Steve Kelly (Hostile) on Bass & Mark Brawn on Drums. But after a lack of a live Keyboard player, the band is now a Recording only project. Hopefully if all goes to plan, with more interest in the band, a Keyboard player will come along, and Asatru will once again be a Live Unit.
Band/artist history
Formed in 2249RE (1999CE), 1st demo released End of 2249RE. After 2 gigs the LIVE stuff was stopped, due to Lack of a Live Keyboard player (Keyboards are an important part of the Asatru sound). Asatru was kinda Dormant for a while then in 2003 I joined UK Metal band "Cancer", also from Telford. After a Fun time with the guys in "Cancer" Doing Headline gigs throughout Europe and England, I am back working on a brand new Asatru demo, which i hope to have ready early 2005. I am also possibly going to change the band name.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I have played live only twice with Asatru, in Telford. But have done gigs also with UK metal band "Cancer" throughout Europe and England. And yes, I love doing gigs :)
Your musical influences
Mainly influenced by Quorthon / Bathory. Other influences were Early 80s Thrash metal bands like Celtic Frost, Voivod, Kreator, Coroner. But the Viking stuff by Bathory was always the main interest, as I was already interested in Vikings anyway. More recently there have been some Awesome Viking bands, like Moonsorrow, Enslaved & Einherjer to name a few.
What equipment do you use?
Gibson Flying "V"s, love em.
