Steignyr is not well known yet everywhere in the folk-metal world. Can you tell us how the band was born?
“The band was born in 2011 thanks to Jon, the singer and solo guitarist. He always wanted to make a band of Celtic Metal and one day he decided to gather musicians, he composed some songs and that’s all, haha, we started to play the songs and since then we haven stopped.”
Where does the band get their musical influences from. We know ‘typical’ Spanish bands like Saurom and Mago de Oz, but we only hear little elements from those bands.
“Our principal musical influences are Eluveitie, Ensiferum, Equilibrium, Amon Amarth, Suidakra, Wintersun… etc, we admire their music and we think the style is similar, more than the style from Mago de Oz or Saurom.”
