ATAVICUS were born from the ashes of DRAUGR

Image
November 2013, sad news came to all the fans of the Italian band DRAUGR: They announced their split-up which happened after their last show on December 22 from the same year.
As they said during that time, the bands members "may follow different artistic paths" but today, some fans may be happy to learn that Lupus Nemesis together with Triumphator - them both from DRAUGR - founded by winter solstice, a new band named ATAVICUS. The band name is taken from Latin Atavus, which means "Ancestor". 

Their new project deals with traditions while they describe their music as "Italic pagan heavy metal".

Sword Chant now on DeviantART!

I created one account on Deviantart.

There will be pictures of bands I've seen live, taken by myself. Pictures related with Sword Chant & Eld (flyers, special thanks....) will be also on this account. 
Some people already asked me for I add their pictures on my account. I didn't think to that possibility when I made this new page but this could be possible if they agree with the terms written in the forum.
This is my new page: http://sword-chant.deviantart.com/
For now are pictures I've taken from the Paganfest 2008 in France but other pictures are coming soon. :)

FEJD, AFTERGOD & MÅNEGARM at FOSCH FEST, ITALY ?

October 2013,

I suggested to the FOSCH FEST orga the bands FEJD and AFTERGOD to play live in that italian event coming this year. I did it with ELD (nothing about written on the website) and the fest was interested in but they need the fans to help in their decisions. They've made some polls for the fans to help them and I noticed MÅNEGARM feats there as well.
Many choices can be to the polls.


FIRST PAGE:
Please, select AFTERGOD amongst your other choices. This young Italian band won't disappoint you. They also made a tune with Leo from VALLORCH available below and actually, their whole demo is available in our playlist::

News regarding STEIGNYR!

A lot of news regarding STEIGNYR!

First of all,  Adrien, Niniel Zorak, & Vilboög Dürsjen left the band for personal reasons but the rest of the band kept the hard work on the upcoming cd now entitled "The Legend". The previous title was "Sons of Nature" as it was supposed to be the debut album but in the end, this cd will be their first EP.

The end of a war

The battle I prematurely ended the last time is back and now are new rules regarding bands battles. I hope this will make an end to the ones with desire to kill our promotional way & help to our beloved folk metal bands.
Reminder of the fighters in this battle:
- AFTERGOD - ATLAS PAIN - BOISSON DIVINE - HELSÓTT - SCYTHIA - SLANE
The battle takes place here:  http://swordchant.go-board.com/t2216-59th-battle-the-end-of-a-war
Have a good fight, everyone!

The 59th bands battle will return...

One problem appeared in the current bands battle forcing me to end it. Some votes were rather strange. All the bands will return to the battleground from February 8th to 22 with new rules for the voters.

Sorry everyone but there's no other way.

Best regards
