Sometimes there are bands that I can tell I will like just from the first tunes I listen from them. This definitely happened with this new underground one-man band from Romania. So, after getting this self-released EP in my hands I was glad to see that the first impression was correct.
Marțolea is the personal project of Alin Drimus, who also contributed pipe parts in Negura Bunget’s masterpiece “OM”. His music is pagan folk black metal, but not the Read more…
This is the first full-length album by Kerbenok, a remarkable new band from Germany that was formed back in 2000. After their decent mini CD “Der Erde Entwachsen (Gewollte Wunden)” in 2007 that was re-released in 2008 by Northern Silence, they return with a quality pagan black metal album, a real hidden gem!
Behind Kerbenok are Stefan and Christopher, accompanied by many session members in “O”. They composed a long album (lasting more than 71 mins) with very ambitious Read more…
Artep is a Canadian black metal band formed in 2005. After their first demo “Fires of Mortal Deception” in 2007, where they played raw black metal with some symphonic elements, they return this November with a new 3-song promo “Black War”. This promo actually works as a “prelude” to their upcoming album “Thy Will be Done on Earth As is Done in Hell”.
This new promo contains one old and two new songs and Read more…
“Perun Do Vas !!!” is the second full-length album by this (unknown to most, I hope not for very long) Slovakian band. Ancestral Volkhves were formed in 2001 by Dod and Gamayun and the same year they released their demo “Going Towards the Gates of Mystery…” where they delivered some kind of raw pagan black metal. The demo was never distributed properly, since it was self-released… After some silence the band returned with its first official Read more…
Myrkvar is another band from the Dutch folk metal scene that seems to flourish these days (Grimm, Heidevolk, Elexorien, Thronar. etc). Formed in 2003 they released two demos before their first album is complete. Now they signed in Shiver Records to release their “Als Een Woeste Horde” debut CD.
Their music is folk black metal and they are very good at it… Black metal guitars and vocals meet folk instruments in a bizarre mix. The production is ok Read more…
At the end of March Napalm Records will release the debut album of this Swedish folk band. Fejd begun in 2001 by Rimmerfors brothers and it took them 8 years to compose a full-length album. In the mid time they made 2 demos and the self-released the EP “Eld” in 2006, which obviously got Napalm’s attention.
Fejd use traditional Nordic instruments and melodies and they offer us an hour of beautiful acoustic folk Swedish music. Even though they don’t use Read more…
Sometimes it’s easy to tell a band can make great things. I’ve happened to watch Kivimetsän Druidi since their demos and I was surprised by their quality and I was wondering what are they waiting for in order to release a full-length. So when I learned that they signed in Century Media, it was no surprise for me.
The band comes from Finland and it was formed in 2002 by the Koskinen brothers. Their very well produced demos contained songs Read more…
Svafnir is a one-man band from Germany. Alexander Suplie does everything in this project that exists from 2004. After two demos and two self released mini albums “Pfad des Nebels” in 2006 and “Aufbruch” in 2007, their first officially distributed full-length “The Heathen Chapters” is released by Galgenstrang Produktionen.
“The Heathen Chapters” contains the complete album “Aufbruch” re-mastered (the 7 first songs) and 5 new songs. Svafnir’s music in “Aufbruch” is mainly acoustic folk, based totally on guitars and whispered Read more…
