Tickets to Skálmöld and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra in August sold out in just a few minutes. Now efforts are being made to put on the third concert, but an immense number of people take part in it including three choirs. Iceland Symphony Orchestra’s concert in November 2013 was a huge success with all of the three concerts sold out, and received enthusiastic praise from critics. One reviewer even called the concert “The Metal-mass of the Century” and the recording of the concert reached platinum status. Since 2013, Skálmöld has released two albums and the new songs need to be arranged for the orchestra.
