Metal Review – Ereb Altor – Nattramn (2015)

Ereb Altor - Nattramn

Pagan/black/doom metal act Ereb Altor is a band that I have a ton of respect for. Simply stated, they kick ass. Formed in 2003 from the ashes of doom metal band Forlorn, who have since changed their name to Isole, the band’s sound has been all over the place from their viking metal roots to

Metal Review: Varg – Guten Tag (2012)

Varg’s twisted world is a place where pagan, folk, death and black metal all collide to make a sound that is all their own. With their sharp, raspy German vocals (sans the track A Thousand Eyes) and elements from so many genres of metal, Varg is definitely a band that you will remember – love

From the icy mountaintops of … France? Work with me here. I am describing a black metal album. Anyway, back to the review. Aurvandil is a French black metal/pagan metal band that has the aura of a Norwegian black metal band and paints the perfect atmosphere of what a traditional black metal sound truly is.

Metal Review – Varg – Wolfskult (2011)

Style: Viking Metal / Pagan Metal / Folk Metal Country: Germany Varg is a band that I can really get behind these days. I loved their previous release, Blutaar. When I listened to Wolfskult, I was surprised to see that their style had actually changed drastically. Gone are the Viking Metal / Pagan Metal sound

Moonsorrow is a band that I can really get behind and Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa is one of my most anticipated albums of 2011. Right from the outset of this review, I will tell you that they did not disappoint with Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa in any way. This is an epic release from a
