OK folks, this is too cool not to pass on.
The group is called Tyr. They hail from the Faeroe islands and the language is Faroese which, along with Icelandic, some consider about as close as you can get to Old Norse. Apparently this group is highly popular in Scandinavia (no surprise there), and eastern Europe.
The High Quality version is 11M the low Q - 1.8M.
Regin Smiður is an old Faroese ballad telling the tale of Regin the blacksmith and his part in the destiny of Sigfried Dragonslayer. Regin plots to decieve Sigfried but Odin makes sure that Sigfried is well informed and eventually Sigfried slays Regin as well as the Dragon.
