Band: ValyriaAlbum: Into the Dying of TimeRelease Date: 18th May 2018Record Label: Self-Release I can’t remember exactly how I came across Valyria and their latest album,
With keys adding cheese, soaring vocals, guitar solos, singalong choruses, and a power ballad, it has all the ingredients you need for one hell of a power metal banger.
Sorgir will not only appeal to the die hard Skálmöld fans, but also to those who may not have heard much of their music before and are into the more traditional metal sound.
Get yourself a ticket for Power Metal Quest Fest, get yourself a t-shirt, and support all the amazing bands on the lineup who rely on our support to keep going!
This album is consistent in quality, it is what you would expect from Saltatio Mortis and what you would expect from a folk metal album.
When I heard that this was blackened Viking metal, I wasn’t expecting the amount of folky influences akin to Moonsorrow, and I really do enjoy that. The Italian folk metal scene, and the southern European folk metal scene in general are getting bigger, and there are some fantastic bands coming out of this.
It’s what I like in folk metal all in one nice neat package of an album. The album is consistent without being too similar and every track being the same, each track has its own unique identity. I am very much looking forward to hearing even more Triddana in the future!
My review of my experience of Thursday and Friday of Bloodstock Festival 2018.
A beautiful and atmospheric take on some of the lesser-known lore of Tolkein’s world.
The folk and power metal scene in the UK is getting bigger every year, and I am fortunate enough to know and in some cases be friends with the members of several of these bands.
