It is a concept album dealing with how American culture might have been different had the Vikings managed to colonise the continent. The album is a tour through various styles of American music ("The Lay Of The Surfers" is a Beach Boys parody), filled with references to modern American culture and ancient Norse myths and legends.
The album has been re-released in the late 1990s by BGO Records and is currently available on Eclectic Records (ECLCD1057) with bonus tracks.
