Krauka is a four piece band from Denmark/Iceland that does a modern rock interpretation on “viking” music using viking instruments — mostly acoustic — best described as “Viking Rock. Nordic folk.”
I say HECK YES.

Recap of Warped Tour 2010, Shakopee, MN
Warped Tour 2010, baby…
It was my fifth Van’s Warped Tour – hosted again on the lovely manure-covered lawn of Canterbury Park.

Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band at Warped Tour 2010, Shakopee, MN
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band was the best damn surprise of Warped this year.
With Reverend Peyton on resonator guitar and lead vocals, his wife Breezy on washboard and (kissing?) cousin Aaron “Cuz” Persinger on drums, the Southern Indiana trio brought a taste of the south to the tour
They were intense, raw and gritty. Just how I like my southern fried potatoes. And speaking of, the best song of the set was “Mama’s Fried Potatoes.” Delicious.
Their latest album is called Wages, and you can stream most of it here.
