Symphonic/Folk/Viking Metal

Produced By the band themselves and featuring many well-known names from the Finnish folk metal scene, this latest offering is essentially one epic number divided into nine shorter sections: an unashamedly OTT journey to the cold & merciless north, drawing on a wide variety of musical genres – from brutal black metal right through to folk music, orchestrated, classical interludes, angelic vocal melodies & spoken passages, the whole thing steeped in the sort of atmosphere & grandeur more typically found on big-budget movie soundtracks. According to Crimfall themselves, "Our second album is more epic, more grandiose, more extreme & more dramatic than our debut…"

The extent of how heavy metal, in its various genres, has become an international phenomen continues to amaze me. When I thought I've heard every variation, along comes Portugal's Gwydion playing mixture of black, folk, and viking metal on their latest Horn Triskelion, something more often reserved for bands from Scandinavia….

Folk Viking Metal | Label: Napalm Records

Hailing from Randers, Denmark, Svartsot offers a delectable weave of auditory contrasts with a mix of folk and black metal. Through the blending of traditional instruments, like the prominent tin whistle, with the brutality of Claus Gnudtzmann’s death-style vocals, “Ravnenes Saga” is a collection of high energy tracks with infectious melodies that stick in your head long after you’ve had a listen.
Each song sounds different from intro to end, a feat unto itself sometimes when it comes to folk metal. It's a tricky genre to pull off anything overly unique, yet the sextet managed to keep me listening until the end. You won’t find any rip-roaring guitar solos here or a double kick that’s so fast you can’t decipher one beat from the next. What you will hear is good solid musicianship, well thought out tunes and an energy that will inspire you to plunder and frolic at the same time. Or at least think about it.

The Portugese Epic/Folk Metallers GWYDION release the new album "VETERAN" at November 22, 2013.Vocalist Rúben Almeida about "VETERAN": "Fans will experience a slightly different musical-style, as the music is much more epic and "metal" than folk compared to the previous release. Since the beginning of the band, we had a very influential epic component in the songs, so naturally when we created this new album, we decided to have a strong mixture of heavy metal riffs and epic/folk songs. The new album is a story of a warrior since his birth through his training, conquests and defeats with relevance to the History of Portugal."
