Thule, ultima Thule(noun)
the geographical region believed by ancient geographers to be the northernmost land in the inhabited world
Ultima Thule is a Swedish rock band. Their style is based on what they call Vikingarock, which combines occasional folk melodies with rock, mixed with Oi!, street punk and Teddy Boy. Some of their lyrics are versions of poems and traditional songs by Evert Taube, such as "Änglamark". They have also released a version of Sweden's national anthem, "Du gamla, Du fria'". They have been described as a white power band, though ethnomusicologist Benjamin Teitelbaum disputes this classification. För Fäderneslandet is Ultima Thule's most popular album, selling more than 100,000 copies. Vikingabalk, their second best selling album, went gold with more than 80,000 copies sold.
