Dukhi Predkov is a newcomer in the folk metal scene, coming from the endless source for this genre, Russia. The band was formed in 2005, but they never released anything until now. Their name (Духи Πредков in Russian) means Spirits of the Ancestors and they call their music pagancore. Recently they signed a deal with the Russian label Metalism Records that has just released their debut album “Terra Ursorum”.
The music of this sextet has many different influences. Read more…
Rarog is another band from the great and ever-growing Slavic pagan folk metal scene. It is true that nowadays there are countless bands from Russia playing female fronted pagan metal metal, but I really believe Rarog deserve your attention, since they are very good at what they do. The band was formed in 2004 and next year they released their debut “Аз Бога Ведаю!”, a very promising album. Now, six years later they return with a much improved Read more…
The second album from the Russian folk metallers is already out. Wolfmare return 2 years after their great debut “Whitemare Rhymes” in 2008, with another top quality work. The band sounds even more tight this time, something expected, since they are together for 10 years now, after several line-up changes though (before 2007 they were named Wolfsangel and they had released another album in 2004).
Wolfmare have kept all the great elements of their debut and the only Read more…
Cruachan is one of the first bands mixing Celtic music with extreme metal. They were formed in 1992 in Dublin of Ireland and at their first steps they were playing folk black metal. After the release of their debut album “Tuatha Na Gael” in 1995, the band became more “soft” and melodic, gradually removing extreme metal elements and brutal vocals. It took them 5 years to release their second album “The Middle Kingdom” and then they Read more…
Drygva is a new band from Belarus that was formed in 2007. There are actually only two members behind the band, Вiталь and Аляксей, with the help of some session drummers. After their 3 song self released EP “Кола Часу” they managed to find not only one, but 2 labels to release their debut album “Сын Магутнага Рода (Son of Mighty Rod)”.
There are cases when you predict what you Read more…
Folk metal is a very overcrowded genre with many sub-genres. Folk black metal is one of them, counting many bands, some great, some good and many crap… And if by the term folk black metal you get a taste about what you are going to listen to, Aiumeen Basoa is a totally different case! This Basque band was formed in 1994, but they only released a split album “Triarchy of Vasconia” in 2001 with Adhur and Ilbeltz. When Read more…
Pagan folk metallers Adorned Brood are back with a brand new album, their seventh full-length. Formed in 1993 they were one of the first bands from Germany playing this genre. After their first cult releases of folk black metal “Hiltia”, “Wigand” and “Asgard” they moved to a more heavy-rock mood for the next two albums. It was only in their previous release “Noor” that they seemed to return to their more extreme Read more…
Odroerir is a folk metal band formed back in 1998 from Fix, who is also on the band Menhir. Initially they were known as a Menhir side project and they sounded like a “lighter” version of them. In 2002, with a new full line-up, their debut album “Laßt Euch Sagen Aus Alten Tagen…” was released by Ars Metalli and it was instantly sold out! Three years later they return with a very refreshed sound in order to release Read more…
