This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Varg Saastad, the lead guitarist and master of many instruments in the folk rock band Vǫluspá. We've spoken with Varg's partner Sól Geirsdóttir, perhaps better known by her internet moniker: "The Viking Queen," back in episode 59 (which is also a great listen). Together with the boys Varg will be delving into the personal journey his music has taken him on, as well as his upcoming projects, including a song about Heimdall which features every instrument he knows how to play. That's frankly just a bonkers feat of complexity we can't hope to match!
