By: Michel Score: 7/10 Release: 26-4-2013 Label: Independent Lou Quinse, the Francoprovencal singing folk-metalband form the north of Italy decided a while a go to rework their first demo. They remastered the songs and added a new one “Lo Pal” the occitan extreme version of the antifascist Catalan anthem by Luis Llach “L’estaca”. This ‘re-issue’ starts with flutes in the a nice folk-classic song. The typical French folk is obvious, but it’s all done with a fierce metal taste. The medieval folk-songs remind of Saltatio Mortis a bit, but then with a different coating. Where SaMo gives it all a … lees verder
By: Michel Score: 8,5/10 Release: 20-4-2013 Label: Independent An Theos may be a relatively young band, but this can’t be heard when you listen to their single. Chemarea străbunilor is the name of this début of this Romanian band. Making music with 8 people can become a great mess if you don’t know what you’re doing, but it’s obvious these folk know what they’re doing. The intro of Chemarea străbunilor is breathtaking and has this typical Romanian style but not of the typical folk-dance kind we usually hear.
By: Michel Score: 8,5/10 Release: 24-5-2013 Label: Trollzorn Records It’s been a while since we heard something from Ignis Fatuu, this isn’t strange if you know they parted with their singer last year. Changes of vocalist are always a bit risky, but they have to be made sometimes. A new singer can give a bit a whole new sound. Fortunately Ignis Fatuu doesn’t let us wait for their full length to listen to their new singer. No they’ve released a single, giving us the opportunity to listen to their new singer.
By: Michel Score: 8,5/10 Release: 10-4-2013 Label: Independent Coming back from a little vacation you stumble over a nice Celtic Punk album by The Fatty Farmers on your doormat. What a nice way to come back home! This is the third one of these Spanish folk and it’s called Refarmatory.
By: Colin Score: 7,5/10 Release: 2013 Label: Independent Tavern folk from Russia. At first the description made me think of Versengold alike music, funny medieval folk, not metal at all, but I was proved wrong. Troin makes metal straight from a tavern, new and unique.
By: Michel Score: 6/10 Release: 30-4-2013 Label: Independent Well, in our review on the previous album Folk-metal.nl mentioned it became less interesting when the folk got out of the album. Now Izmoroz has an EP out, we wonder in which direction the band would develop.
By: Nick Score: 4/10 Release: 12-2012 Label: Independent There are bands that eventually swith carreer. There are even bands which completely switch styles, searching for the right and perfect sound. For everything can be found a reason, but not for what Diadema Tristis does. You can always go too far.
By: Nick Score: 7/10 Release: 29-11-2012 Label: Independent Live-albums, it’s not really my cup of tea in general. In my opinion, These records only have value when you actually visited the concert. The Ukrainian Kroda, however, released a live-album which could captivate me slightly more. Maybe this is because I didn’t know the band at all, giving me a fresh view on the band’s music.
By: Michel Score: 7/10 Release: 15-12-2012 Label: Independent When you hear the bandname Schwarzwald you don’t think of a band from Tenerife at once, but they are actually. And despite the fact it’s a nice name and it refers to Germany where they’ve have the biggest folk-metal scene, I always think it’s a bit of a shame when you don’t refer to you something in your own culture of country. Said this we get to the demo itself. And it is a demo, you should expect the same thing as in a normal album.
By: Michel Score: 7/10 Release: 13-11-2010 Label: Independent Not a very productive band the Romanian Folk-metal band Bucovina. With an Full length after six years of existence in 2006 and an EP in 2010. Ans now there’s a single in 2013. Onfortunatelly this single has only one song ‘Day follows Day, Night follows Night’ You can listen to it on their bandcamp. This not vere much for a review. You can expect pretty much the same as on their EP ‘Duh’, it could have been one of the tracks of that album.
