I need a cover for a "viking rock" album. The project is called "Valhalla - a Nordic Rock Opera". Here's a brief summary of the story, which will give you a feel for the theme: The story, set around 800 AD, is about a young, Norse viking named Sven who gets separated from his raiding party in Britain. In desperation, he kidnaps a young nun, named Mary, for a hostage, and together they sail for Norway. They're hunted down by Saxon knights, and Sven is slain. He then ascends to Valhalla (the heaven for vikings, where they eat and fight for eternity). He's glad to see his deceased father, though his misses Mary. Feeling restless, he takes on the gods and escapes from Valhalla. He's then is given a second chance at life. Sven rescues Mary from the abusive knights and protects the Saxons from another viking raid by making peace with his old clan. Together, he and Mary start a new life. The theme is heavily-rooted in Norse mythology, referencing the gods, such as Odin (father of the gods), Thor (god of thunder), Tyr (god of war), Freya (goddess of war), etc. There's also many allusions to the valkyries (Odin's maiden warriors who descend from Valhalla on flying horses in order to rescue the valiant souls slain in battle). Other important themes are the ocean, viking ships, rock music, war, and the rough, bearded vikings themselves. The project is family friendly, though of a dark tone.
