Since we stumbled across Boscars, the first video released for Kanseil‘s Cant del Corlo, our lookout kinda had his radar in full motion to capture the EP once it dropped. And this single already intrigued us with its quiet and quietly professional airs.

Kanseil already got coverage for two studio records Doin Earde and Fulische on RMR. Both – of course – are fully plugged and more in a Folk Metal environment than anything else. And whilst these pieces are technically well done, they often still sound like a somewhat propped-up and electronically charged version of a … [...] Click to raid more!

RMR followed Kanseil for some time already. Known for their somewhat gnarly Folk Metal delivered in part in an ancient dialect and a lot of Italian, they did manage to secure full reviews for Doin Earde and Fulische already.

Not losing their creative streak, lest the fan base will evaporate quickly and light on juicier targets is the next challenge. Or navigating around that pitch-black, razor-sharp cliff that always appears for their sophomore album is the ultimate challenge. Many a band already wrecked their career on that particular rock, either because they ran out of ideas [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Kanseil - Doin Earde - Album Cover

A fresh, crunchy wind blows into today’s somewhat stale folk metal scene. Coming up from the South, no less!

The Italian band Kanseil just published their debut album Doin Earde (meaning ‘your land’ in Cimbrian dialect) a few days ago. Arguably their tune is still in need of some more polish and improvement. But frankly, the way innovation, energy, drive, and delivery goes, their tune is not bad at all.

I have been following them around for a while already and I do like their refreshing style, mixing different medieval, archaic, and contemporary instruments into their metal stew.

Kanseil bring enough variation to their tune to avoid having … [...] Click to raid more!
