Wow, what a year 2018 was! I started Ostara Metal properly in January and this year has been a rollercoaster of a year, both with
One of the best possible ways to end my live music experiences of 2018. What a show!
This is an amazing debut from YYLVA. The tracks are really well written, the mix is brilliant and Clare’s vocals are absolutely incredible. I expect many more great things from YYLVA, and I am excited to hear more in the future.
This album is a great mix of power, folk and symphonic metal, with heavy Ensiferum influences. If you enjoy these genres, Adavant is a band you definitely want to be keeping track of in the future!
Overall it’s a great folk metal album, and if you like your folk metal on the heavier side it’s definitely an album you need to check out, and North Hammer is definitely a band you need to keep your eye on!
This album really makes you feel the struggle and hardships of the Finnish people. When you don’t speak the language the lyrics are written in, the power of the music and expression in the voice becomes even more important, and this album really captures the concept of the entire album.
This album keeps you on edge, you don’t know what to expect, but it all fits together.
If you like your power metal cheesy, fast and great, this album is something you need to expose your ear drums to.
A beautiful black metal concept album with elements of melodic, symphonic and folk metal. Thank you to the guys in Jörmungand for letting me have a listen to this pre-release!
