Brooklyn bruisers Hull were kind of enough to give us permission to stream the entire Viking Funeral EP. Actually, Viking Funeral isn’t so much an EP as it’s is an epically long (16 minutes and 51 seconds) song. EPs are classified as, according to Wikipedia not the RIAA or Billboard, “a musical recording which contains more music than a single, but is too short to qualify as a full album or LP”. OK, we’re jerks. Hull, you can call Viking Funeral an EP. Go nuts!

But here’s what the band had to say about it: “Viking Funeral is a two-movement EP that focuses on the life of war and struggle of an antiquated culture. As with all of our releases, Viking Funeral deals with the hardships and victories that every civilization experiences. This EP will eventually be part of a full-length album that touches on life, death and afterlife in the Viking mythology. Brett Romnes, who is co-producing and tracking our forthcoming full-length for The End Records, played drums on this recording.”

So, without further audio adieu, here’s Hull’s “Viking Funeral”. Note: It takes a few seconds for Hull to kick in.
