FOLKEARTH "Drakkars In The Mist"
  • Album: Drakkars In The Mist
  • Year: 2007
  • Label: STYGIAN CRYPT
  • Artist: 

Perhaps the most globalised project from the Folk Metal scene! This is their third album and I can say that the idea behind it is identical: Folk Norse Metal, with guests from numerous countries and different bands. For example, here we have 30 musicians from over 11 countries and different bands: MORITURI, KOZIAK, THULR, DOL AMROTH, DEATH ARMY, VETTER, PAGAN REIGN, HORDAK, YGGDRASIL, NAE BLIS, THE SOIL BLEEDS BLACK, MOONROT and PEORDH. You can imagine that it is practically impossible to describe the concept behind this project. We have from aggressive Viking to acoustic Folk, with all sorts of voices, with traditional instruments but brutal riffs as well, controlled chaos, if you wish. I don’t think it is the most inspired album as the variety of the tracks gives the sensation of a continuous copy/paste, and so, I personally prefer “A Northern Poem” or even “By The Sword Of My Father”, even if the mixing of the precedents lacks in some respects.
