German pagan metal band Asenblut have released Legenden a new EP available that includes the title track, four re-recordings of early material, plus a bonus cover.

“The music of the title track gave us inspiration for the lyrics and the album title”, recalled Tetzel, Asenblut’s clan boss, founder and vocalist. “The high pace, the heroic power and the energy of the song immediately lead to strong pictures that were followed by the right words mirroring the force and the madness of the berserker.”

Asenblut’s line-up being completed by Claus Cleinkrieg (Guitars), Yuri (Guitars), Sash (Bass), Balrogh (Drums).
