By: Colin Location: De Pul, Uden, The Netherlands Date: 29-11-2013 I was really looking forward to this evening! One of my favorite bands, just around the corner! Starkill First this evening we got Starkill, I only knew them by their name on the flyer and didn’t really expect too much of it, but these Americans give me my weekly portion of being wrong! Some melodic deathmetal most similar to Kalmah.
By: Nick Photography: Krzysztof Ras It’s quite a lot, driving for ten hours there, and ten hours back for just a concert. However, this was what I did on my Fridaymorning, for the concert of Empyrium. Due to many traffic jams and accidents on the way to Berlin, we unfortunately weren’t on time for the listening session of the new album, but that couldn’t spoil the excitement for the concert. After ten hours of continuously driving (or well.. Driving? More like standing still in the traffic jams…) we eventually arrived at the Passionkirche in Berlin. A beautiful church where the … lees verder
By: Nick Date: 16-11-2013 Location: Helvete, Oberhausen, Germany Vogelfrey, the band that up until now always played a great show. That was the foremost reason to drive all the way from the misty Brabant to Oberhausen, just to see this band.
By: Nick An evening folk-punk, who doesn’t want that? Fiddler’s Green played for the first time in Amsterdam, something we couldn’t miss of course! The Melkweg was the place to be this drizzling Friday-evening. After standing in line to wait for the most ridiculous thing at a concertvenue EVER – paying a membership of €4,-, just to get inside – it was time for the first band of the evening. Pyrates! Pyrates! A band originating from Eindhoven,
5, 6 October Oberhausen and Tilburg Every folk- and paganfan knows it by now; Heidenfest. This year it was hard to escape this great feast. With a various mix between large bands like Ensiferum, Equilibrium and Turisas, and small bands like Winterstorm and Frosttide, it promised to be a great day. Folk-metal.nl joined the Heidenfest in Oberhausen and Tilburg. What follows below is a total review, because both shows weren’t much different.
By: Nick 3-10-2013 Willemeen, Arnhem, The Netherlands Photography: Metalshots.com 3 octobre. Arnhem. An evening where three bands played. Three bands which might not seem as a logical combination. The Vision Bleak, Saturnus and of course DordeDuh, the band for which folk-metal.nl traveled all the way to Arnhem. How could a band like DordeDuh start better than with the song ‘Dojana’? They can’t. Immediately the atmosphere was set, and what became immediately clear was the flawless sound. All traditional instruments could be heard perfectly, even when the electrical guitar joined the music.
By: Nick Thursday night, not a typical night where you’d expect some brutal deathmetal on the planning. However, this night 5 bands of the more brutal metal music played in the Mezz, Breda. With bands like Nile, Svart Crown, Saratan and Pestifer it promised to be a good night, but the real reason to come here for those interested in folk-metal were of course the Romans of Ex Deo.
By: Colin and Nick Photography: Metalshots.com The 24th edition of the biggest metalfestival in the world and ofcourse we are joining in this year as well. Tuesday we travel towards the Mekka of Metal to stay one week in the holy lands of Wacken Open Air. And once more, it’s going to be a good year with big names and a lot of folk-metal. Fejd While the official start of Wacken was on Thursday, each year the party already starts on Wednesday with 3 or more folk-metalbands which will take care of the pre-party.
By: Michel The world is full of beautiful things. If you want to escape every-day city life or the huge massive events, you have to pay a visit to FantasiaFest in Meppel, The Netherlands. On a quiet place in the middle of nature and old farmland there’s an old mansion ‘De Lindenhorst’ and it’s around this house there this lovely event Fantasiafest. The first festivalday started very hot and the weatherforecast predicted heavy thunder. We could reach the area very easy, it’s about 3 km form the highway A28. When we stepped out of modern times into the fantasy world … lees verder
By: Nick After two extreme hot days, it finally cooled down a bit on the wednesdaynight that Skiltron was about to set foot on stage of the Little Devil for their first European tour ever. With Rhovanion as their support it promised to be a great evening. Rhovanion Exactly at half past 8, Rhovanion started playing with their catchy folk-metal. While it was a little tight on stage, with 7 people, the band played with a lot of conviction. The sound was excellent, which could be called a small miracle with the numerous different instruments this band uses.
