Newsflash: Mister Folk issues Compilation #4!

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Mister Folk - Compilation Vol 4 - Album CoverWhat did I just read lately? Ah – yes – it went something like this – and I quote: “Always be yourself. But if you can be a Viking, always be a Viking.”

By that token, did you ever get the urge to spiff up your insights on Pagan, Folk or Viking Metal? Or perhaps you simply want to get some ideas on what juicy slab of music to procure next? I might just have the solution for you: The Italian site Mister Folk kind of regularly issues compilations of stuff they cover over time.

They lately published the Compilation Vol IV featuring names like Skyforger, the excellent SIG:AR:TYR or – again – Gotland.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

ARockmusicRaider Review - Kanseil - Doin Earde - Album Cover 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 début album Doin Earde (meaning ‘your land’ in Cimbrian dialect) a few days ago through Nemeton Records. 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 and very credible.

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 it descend into a meaningless jumble of musical ingredients.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
