Starburst Magazine

absolutely fantastic songs … total show-stoppers

Blodlina: The Viking Musical is a rare treat, a rock musical with sword fighting, drama and some great costumes. We would love to see it tour.

the stand out surprising hit for me across the whole of the fringe.

Harley Peers

As someone who has a guilty pleasure for Norse culture, mythology and history, this was an absolute treat to watch!

With gripping characters, emotional stories and amazing stage combat. GO SEE IT!!

Matt Tapp

Great fun all round

perfect for any fans of vikings, rock/folk musicals, or both.

I found myself attached to its plot and characters, carried by excellent actors and beautiful compositions.

I hope this takes off in the future.
