Viking Amazons of the Metal North

"A witch dwells to the east of Midgard, in the forest called Ironwood: in that wood dwell the troll-women, who are known as Ironwood-Women. The old witch bears many giants for sons, and all in the shape of wolves; and from this source are these wolves sprung. The saying runs thus: from this race shall come one that shall be mightiest of all, he that is named Moon-Hound; he shall be filled with the flesh of all those men that die, and he shall swallow the moon."
-The Gylfaginning, Snorri Sturluson

You probably already found this in your google abyss , but I found this site to be extreamly helpful when I ran a 9th Century Viking game. http://www.hurstwic.org/history/text/history.htm

Many of those would make excellent metal band names. Which is to say, they would make excellent adventuring band names for metal Vikings.
