Blodiga Skald Interview
Hi, it is nice to meet you. I am here with Blodiga Skald, an Italian Ork-Folk Metal band out of Rome with a Swedish name, lyrics in English and Russian language. A real nice combination. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers.
“Hi Juergen, nice to meet you! The band was founded 4 years ago, the Swedish name sounded cool to us and that’s why we choose it! About the lyrics, our singer (Axuruk) speaks Russian fluently, so it was easy for us to associate the Russian language to the orcish! The orcish concept and musical style, that is closer to death metal with orchestral and folk elements (thanks to the violin of Yindi and the keyboards of Tuyla), came out after the first rehearsals and, after one year, we left our first album “Ruhn”. We have been very satisfied with the result and we toured half of Europe to promote it. We have then spent the next two years between gigs and writing “The Undrunken Curse”, a very different album, but a 100% Blodiga one!”
