A drop of black color changes each color, no matter how much of it there is.
So a word can change its meaning, not only in a phrase but also in an idea.
How it sounds
Like the rustling of leaves, in which the cold autumn air of the northern countries plays the notes.
The sound of burning wood accompanies the drums and shapely naked dancers follow an incomprehensible rhythm around a fire.
No you silly, it’s just a mixture of folk / black metal with moments of pure heavy metal in its relaxed moments.
It is the themes of the lyrics that differentiate it.
Why listen to it
Because it has enough musical diamonds and to learn new traditional instruments from the northern countries.
Basically for the same reasons as folk metal.
Because it is nothing more than another subculture of reviving pre-Christian animations based on religions, which simply searches for and finds musical background.
Where we meet it
In northern Europe, where else?
When did it start
In the early ‘90s
Who are the pioneers
The Norwegians In the Woods are considered pioneers.
However, the term was coined from the Irish Primordial and the song “To Enter Pagan” from the 1993 demo of the band’s album “Dark Romanticism”.
Some folk metal bands are considered to belong to the genre.
You have to listen
Days of glory
They have their glory as separate bands, but somewhere in the late ’90s can be characterized as the good season, but also in the 10’s towards the end.
Nazis! It gathers Nazis. Specifically, the Latvian Skyforger have openly stated this.
It needs a lot of attention because, under the guise of pre-Christian cults, they worship swastikas.
What is it confused with
With folk metal. Basically, that’s exactly what it is!
Also with black metal and generally wants a look at the theme of their lyrics to distinguish it.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Like folk metal, but before the advent of Christianity in the Nordic countries…
No, it is not so old, it just remembers the old times or so it thinks.
