Ásmegin is a Norwegian folk/viking metal band formed in 1998. The name comes from Old Norse and means "By the Might of the Æsir" or "By the Might of the Gods". Ásmegin's lyrics are written in Norwegian as well as some in Old Norse and older Norwegian. Some of the tracks on Hin vordende Sod og Sø are modeled after the Norwegian play Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen. Their new studio album, Arv, was released in November 2008.
