Retrön Release First Album

Icelandic heavy metal trio Retrön released their debut Swordplay & Guitarslay under the label of Kimi Records on Friday. The trio is comprised of Kolbeinn Hugi, Kári and Arnar Ingi and they have been working together since 2004.


The band members have worked on writing their album for a long time and its release was delayed by one month, among other reasons because the album cover is such a complicated design, a Kimi Records press release states.

The cover is in fact a castle and the design was inspired by the role playing game Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D).

Retrön will celebrate the release of their debut with a concert at the end of this month and in the meantime perform during the Culture Night on August 22 in the Reykjavík Art Museum.
