KALEVALA : Worlds End Inn EP reviewed

1. The foggy dew you folks may know that song...or mainly ones into celtic folk XD. Here is the track sung only. but what a beautiful voice! the CD starts pretty well! no wrong note in the voice. Beautful. Plus I love that song in all.

2.Worlds end inn A track for folk metalheads!^^ we feel like wanna dance over the main riff & solo. Rock n roll voice. The background vocals parts to the end made the song a wee poprock... but if your eclectic, then you'll see its a good song! 

3. Heritage cry Epic intro somewhere, voice kinda bluesy/hard and so powerful - very nice! The music sounds kinda hard/celtic - pretty cool mix imo. Sometimes his voice reminds me Angelique Kidjo but male version^^, not sure you folks know her but thats world music. I like her pretty much. I think if you like deep purple, acdc, folkstone, turisas, korpiklaani, you'll like that tune.

SIG:AR:TYR tells the Godsaga

The band explained the following regarding the upcoming "Godsaga" album :

"The inspiration for the new album "Godsaga" is loosely based on the saga of Egil Skallagrimsson, and Odin’s sacrifice on the world tree Yggdrasil. The two key words that seem to come up in these themes are "loss" and "sacrifice". 
In the saga of Egil Skallagrimsson, he loses both his sons, yet, in the poem he composes to deal with his grief, Sonatorrek ("the irreparable loss of sons"), he curses Odin the oath breaker for his great loss and misery, while reluctantly praising him for his gift of poetry and hatred towards his enemies.
Odin, pierced on his own spear and hanging for nine nights, sacrificed himself on the world tree to discover the knowledge of the runes. Odin also sacrificed an eye to the Well of Mimir to gain the wisdom of all things, and lost his son Baldur.
