Frost Giant Premiere New Song “Curse of Doubt” From Upcoming New Album “The Harlot Star”

Ugly, frost-bitten, troll-ravaged folk-metallers Frost Giant premiere “Curse of Doubt,” a song from forthcoming Transcending Records release The Harlot Star. Stream it below.

The song is taken from forthcoming album The Harlot Star, an 11-track salute to the glory of battle from one of folk metal’s most unique and entertaining bands. Frost Giant’s third full-length is a catchy mix of 90’s So-Cal punk, European folk metal and American hardcore rooted in Norse mythology, historical references and general silliness.
