Nordland II

album by Bathory

Nordland II is the twelfth studio album by the Swedish extreme metal band Bathory. It was released on 31 March 2003 through Black Mark Productions. The album is mainly viking metal, so the songs have lyrics about Norse mythology. The album was the second in a two-album set, and no plans for Nordland III ever existed.[3]
