SKILTRON interview online

Image
I interviewed SKILTRON about their new album "Legacy Of Blood", the band, and touring.

01. Hi Emilio! The band founded in 1997 and got several line-up change. What happened between you all and, did the new changes helped in SKILTRON sound, a lot ? The band was actually formed in 2003, but in 1997 we had another band that was the genesis for SKILTRON. Of course is normal that in so many years we had a lot of changes in the line up. Being in a band, recording, touring, etc is not easy and is very demanding, so its a long process until you find the right people.  The current line up was together for the last 3 years now and is working really well.

Details for the second BYRDI album

Image
March 17th, 2017 will be released the BYRDI' second album "Urkraft".


Nash Rothanburg comments : 
"Ansur - Urkaft" is an album with a wider variety of expressions, not only the album as whole, but also within each song. You may sit down in a meadow and listen to an old fairytale-like song where the message is "listen to the old people, they know what they are talking about", and another song will make you stand in the sunset, in awe, and listen to the song of the night to come. You may also find songs making you want to pack your knapsack and head for the mountains. "Ansur - Ukraft" just feels more like living, where you have ups and downs, meet new people and focus on your life on a slightly different angle than before.

LA BREICHE debut album out soon

Image
Arexis and Lafforgue (STILLE VOLK) are members from LA BREICHE band that will release "Le Mal Des Ardents" album in this february 6th, 2017. "Holy Fire" is the meaning for the album title that deals with fears, terrors, about the balance between folklore and reason, myth and common sense, light and darkness, past and present, modernity and archaism.
During the 10th century, Ademar de Chabannes, a French monk, described some mysterious ailment which affected peasants in the Limousin region of France- causing spasms, convulsions, hallucinations and consuming the victims’ bodies with some invisible fire. People suspected witchcraft, possession of the devil. But these illnesses were in fact due to poisoning through by a parasite in the rye grain… Fear and terror spread throughout the country. It coupled with many Medieval fears, including famine, war, violence, death, plague, leprosy…
“Here we are in this fictitious state, transforming images and feelings. We are int…

NYTT LAND new album soon

NYTT LAND shared the following news :
Already in the next couple of weeks it is expected the big release of our new flagship creation entitled "Fimbulvinter"! this time he'll be increased circulation, compared with the previous releases, including expect and sells vinyl. True with edition on vinyl came out a little interesting story - we're a little did not take into account the limited size of the format for the duration of possible record for him. And this is the limitation of the entire 45 minutes. So there's been a bit of a sacrifice for a duration of sound and to make some correction. By the way, this time the album was written entirely in the use of analog equipment, just specially for full sound on vinyl formats, and with the masteringe were prepared 2 different versions of - for CD and vinyl and think amateurs "warm" sound will appreciate this))

Happy 2017!

Image
The year 2016 just ended that a new year begins. We entered the year that will complete the ten years for this site. From the Folk Metal listing, we can expect one great year full of nice music going on, again. Meanwhile, the Folk music one yet enlarge that feeling.
2017 won't be one easy year but I know bands and all professionnals behind, will bring and create great musical, design and art projects, making our Culture yet stronger, as I know we'll be many to enjoy loud their projects! Nobody can break this. And we'll show to the world.

As for the 10 years anniversay for this site, I would like to make something very special, maybe one compilation, free download for the world to enjoy but it is probably difficult for bands under a label, I think also to games in agreement with bands or labels.... but I don't know.... If somebody gets some ideas for this event. contact me and I'll see. :)

Best wishes to all of you!
