Believe it or not, Naglfar haven't had a new album in nearly five years. Originating in 1995, the Swedish band, whose name refers to a ship in Norse mythology made entirely of fingernails and toenails of the dead (I'm not even going to try to search for a Google image of that), are now back and brutalizing 2012 with Téras, a nine-track black metal takeover. The only thing more sickening than these songs is the album artwork by Niklas Sundin, guitarist for Dark Tranquility. He has also done album art in the past for In Flames, Arch Enemy and At the Gates.

For a chance to get your grubby little paws on a copy of Téras, to be released on March 26th, tell us in the comments below about your favorite Naglfar album. When the band in question has been around for so many years, there is a lot to talk about. This contest will end at midnight on Wednesday, March 28th.
