There is a lot of potential in Atorc, I just feel that they need to iron out those few creases before they can truly launch into the more international folk metal community.
I hope for Norvhar to release many more albums, especially if they are of this caliber. A tale of the wayfarer’s journey beyond this album would be most welcomed by me, but whatever they put out there in the future, if it is of this quality, I will be among the first to give it a listen.
I think that Ariadne’s Thread are definitely a folk band to look out for in the future, and I hope that one day I will have the chance to see them perform live.
This album is maybe something I wouldn’t have immediately picked up from the cover and album title, but I did really enjoy the tracks. It’s a little bit out of my normal taste, but I had a lot of fun listening to it, and it brought back memories of some of the music I used to listen to in the late 90’s and early 00’s, when you had bands that used to sing of lost love and have some real emotion and feel behind the music.
Despite the fact the album doesn’t really flow well for me personally, the actual composition of the individual tracks is really good. If a future full-length release is in the works, I would like to see some more consistent themes in the instrumentals.
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
There was such a hype on social media before this debut was released the for me it didn’t quite hit impossibly high standard. However, it is a damn good album!
One of the best possible ways to end my live music experiences of 2018. What a show!
This debut from Aexylium sounds absolutely fantastic. It is a really, really good first album for the band, and I hope to hear more from them in the future. The album is happy, jiggy and definitely worthy of the title of folk metal. I expect big things from this Italian band in the future, and you should definitely go and show them your support!
If you love the folk melodies in metal, this is a pure, stripped down version and it is every bit as beautiful you would expect.
