Genre: Epic Metal Folk Death Metal Viking Metal
Label: Stygian Crypt Productions
Year: 2014

10 years after their creation, epic Viking metallers Folkearth are back with their 12th full-length album!!

Metfolvik was also the founder of Folkodia, another international project, musically similar to Folkearth, but with different concept. Soon after Metfolvik passed away, the remaining members of Folkearth and Folkodia took the decision to continue both projects and to carry his music heritage for years to come. The new album of Folkearth is entitled “Balder’s Lament” and was released in 2014 via the band’s permanent label Stygian Crypt Productions.         Read more
