Laurie Ann Hous is the lead vocalist of Autumn Tears, who have released 5 excellent albums of neoclassical experimental music with amazing aethereal female vocals. In 2003 she formed Todesbonden and together with Jason Aaron Wood (Ol Sonuf, Rain Fell Within, Ephemeral Sun) on guitars and Patrick Geddes on violin they released in 2004 the “Stormbringer” EP.
Now with a more complete line-up and a deal with Prophecy Productions they return offering us this masterpiece! It’s not easy to define Read more…
The power folk metal band from Italy is back with its fifth album. Being already 11 years in the scene they released the very promising debut “Heathenreel” in 2001, combining epic power metal with folk music. In their following albums the folk elements were slowly removed, resulting in the almost progressive power metal album “The Scythe” in 2007, where all folk elements are almost gone. Since this was their weakest album so far (according to many reviews and my opinion) Read more…
After 5 years of silence the Norwegian band is back. Even though the band was created in 1998 it was 2003 when they released their “Hin Vordende Sod & Sø” debut, which made quite an impression to the folk metal scene. Their new album “Arv” will be available by the end of November again by Napalm Records and let’s see what they have to present this time.
They are still at the folk black/death genre, but the album is different Read more…
Mirrorthrone is one of Vladimir Cochet’s many projects. He comes from Switzerland and he is the founder and only member of three active bands: Mirrorthrone, Unholy Matrimony and Weeping Birth and he released a new album in 2008 with each of them. Even though the three projects have some similarities, Mirrorthrone has a more experimental atmospheric approach, Unholy Matrimony a more black, and Weeping Birth a more death metal approach.
“Gangrene” is Mirrorthrone’s third album, after “of Wind and Weeping” Read more…
Epic pagan black metallers Andras are back 3 years after their previous effort “…of Old Wisdom”, the album that changed their sound. Their new work continues in the great style of this new Andras era…
The Germans offer us 45 minutes of very melodic well played majestic black metal, with great variety in their sound. The voice of Ecthelion, even though he still reminds a lot of Vintersorg, is a trademark of the band’s new sound and he sings more Read more…
Another promising debut from a new band, coming from UK. They were formed in 2004 under the name Nifelhel by their one and only member Ben Corkhill and released their first demo “Call of the Gods” in 2005 and the second “Upon the Blood of Ymir” in 2006. Later on, Ben changed the band’s name into Oakenshield and in 2007 the demo “Gylfaginning” was out with 4 songs from the upcoming same titled album, that Einheit Produktionen just released.

Butterfly Temple is one of my favorite bands. They are from Russia and they are one of the first bands, if not the first, that introduced pagan folk black/doom metal in this huge country with the rich music tradition. They were formed in 1995 and many years later countless bands from Russia followed their steps, with Arkona being the most known of them.
So far all Butterfly Temple releases were by Russian labels (mainly Irond) and they didn’t get very Read more…
Svarrogh is a very complex and unique band formed in 2001 by the talented Bulgarian musician Dimo Dimov, who is also the only member of the band. He now lives in Germany, but his love for Bulgarian nature and traditions is obvious in his creations.
Svarrogh begun as a raw black metal band with some folk influences and released their first full length “Baxas Xebesheth 1883” in 2003. Later in 2004 they released their second work “Lady Vitosha” that had Read more…
