Dark Troll Festival 2015

dark troll 2015

By: Nick Bornstedt, Germany 14-5 / 16-5 2015 The most common discussion when the festival season starts is always about which festivals to visit, especially since there’s so much choice nowadays! There’s just one festival that’s been on the calendar as soon as the previous edition ended, and that’s the Dark Troll festival. With a line-up mostly focusing around pagan- and black-metal there’s enough to see already, but there’s always enough to do for those folk-hearted. Think about Munarheim, Saor, and Thyrfing for example, what could a folk-metalhead want more? Since we’re called folk-metal.nl for a reason, this report will … Read More

finsterforst mach dich frei

By: Nick Rating: 9/10 Release: 23-1-2015 Label: Napalm Records Finsterforst is back! Three years after the fantastic ‘Rastlos’, the band is back with the album ‘Mach Dich Frei’.

Ragnarök Festival 2014

However, never let the size of things misguide you, because on this festival the best of pagan- folk- and black-metal come together. With bands like Arkona, Finntroll, Skálmöld en Manegarm, there were enough bands for the folk-metal fan to enjoy. And, as it should be at every festivals, with bands as Craving and Firtan there was enough to discover.

Dark Troll Festival 2013

Nick Darktroll 2013

By: Nick Photography: Ute Ruhmann Fotografie Location: Bornstedt, Germany Germany, the perfect country for cheap festivals. Every subgenre has their own festival, so also one for the fans of pagan/folk/blackmetal. Since yours truly is such a fan, we traveled halfway may to Bornstedt for this small festival. Too bad that there can be found 3 Bornstedts in Germany, what resulted in us ending up at the wrong one. The location, a castleruin in the middle of a forest on top of a hill, was at least perfectly chosen, and also the line-up looked really great. Below you can find a … Read More
