I interviewed RUNAHILD from ELIWAGAR again

01. Hi, Runlahild! Or welcome back! He he. How things evolved for you since the last time we met on this webspace ? This is interesting to read again an interview given 2 years ago and notice indeed all the changes in life since then. Eliwagar has now turned 10 years in December 2016. I had a few ideas about doing something special to celebrate it, but I didn’t follow any of these threads and instead decided to start my side project as Runahild.
Most of my life, I have been on my own to live my passions and followed a quite solitary road. While I do truly enjoy being alone, I have also always been longing to meet more people from my spiritual family (those who I instantly feel home with). Those feelings have been very much reflected into Eliwagar, a need to escape this reality because I have been struggling so much with feeling home here. I have been very gifted to meet Bjørn in 2010, and slowly my path is being woven to more people whose souls harmonize with mine. Also, I have now a …

ETERKNIGHT interview

I interviewed Geiler, founder of the ETERKNIGHT band that will release its debut album soon.
01. Hi Geiler ! Back in 2011 was founded ETERKNIGHT, is the band name a mix of « eternal knight » ?  Hi Krissy ! Yes, the name is a mix of « Eternal & Knight », cause the main theme of the lyrics would be telling an adventure of a knight searching for eternity (self written history) and all the albums will have a different sound for every « chapter » but at the moment it isn't in our plans, maybe in the future or maybe not, we don’t know. 

02. What bands have been your main influences starting ETERKNIGHT band in the beginnings? In the beginnings most strong influences were Kalmah, Ensiferum and Rhapsody of fire, today we can say strongest is a « powerish » Ensiferum within more folky sound

One update from SIG:AR:TYR

SIG:AR:TYR shared the following statement :

It's hard to believe that it has been almost a year since the release of Northen. I did not want to repeat the large time gap that happened between Godsaga and Northen, so I've been working on a number of ideas, sounds, and riffs, and have almost an album's worth of material ready to be hammered into final songs and recorded.As I might have mentioned before, I've grown quite tired of the whole Viking thing. Let's face it, the theme has been well worn to death, and Northen was meant to be my last foray on the subject. I'd like to get back to more general dark pagan themes, something more like the songs on Beyond the North Winds and Godsaga.And this might come as a surprise, but I’m also quite tired of the band name SIG:AR:TYR. At the time I made it up while making my original acoustic demos, it seemed mysterious and clever, not realizing that the roots would dig in and grow into a demo EP and four full length albums ove…

Roadburn Live LP's by ENSLAVED available soon

ENSLAVED band shared the following news about their 2 LP « Roadburn Live » settled for April 22nd : "Roadburn Live» is our first official live album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. The album was recorded during one of our headline shows at the renowned Roadburn Festival 2015; an edition curated by Ivar Bjørnson.Grutle comments on the album: "I'm generally not a huge fan of live albums, I like to be present at a show, to grasp the energy of the band and to witness the, sometimes, magical symbiosis that occurs between the band and the audience. I am, however, a huge fan of the Roadburn Festival! I consider this to be my all time favorite, both as a musician and as a guest. Therefore; if ever Enslaved were to release a live album, it had to be from a Roadburn show! I hope you will enjoy listening to this piece of wax as much as we did recording it!"«Roadburn Live» will be available as limited and exclusive Record Store Day color editions an…

JONNE : Kallohonka album details

Playground Music Scandinavia will release the second JONNE album entitled "Kallohonka" by April 28th. JONNE has now become a fully active live band with ten musicians from the Finnish rock, metal and folk scene. The band consists of Jonne Järvelä, Santeri Kallio (AMORPHIS), Jan Rechberger (AMORPHIS), Natalie Koskinen (SHAPE OF DESPAIR), Eero Haula (OCEANWAKE), Jussi Rautio (BATTLELORE, LOVIJATAR), Yovan Nagwetch (WABANAG), Pinja Lintonen, Matti Karjalainen and Toni Perttula. Also Ante Aikio, a well-known Saami artist, features on several tracks on the album.
"Kallohonka" is based on eternal tunes and stories about the returning to foregone roots. To set the right feel, musicians used a variety of folk music instruments, such as mandolin, kantele, fiddle, accordion and flute, yet they didn't forget about some classic live-band instruments — both acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards and percussion.

Nothing Folk Metal, but Rock'n'Roll!

Today, we learn the Godfather of Rock'n'Roll, Chuck Berry, passed away at his home yesterday at the age of 90. Chuck Berry is the one I ever thought as the pillar of all the current rock/metal genres.

I was pretty young when I first heard his talent that never left me and I still have those tapes I played numerous times. The man influenced me pretty much as guitar player I am like he did for so many people.

You probably remember the tracks Johnny B. Goode, Maybellene, or again Roll Over Beethoven...

Thank you, Chuck Berry, for all the R'n'R songs! RIP.

16.06.2017 will be released the new ODROERIR album

"Das Erbe unserer Ahnen" is the title for the next ODROERIR album planned to be released the 16.06.2017.
The title means “The heritage of our ancestors”  and the artwork aside shows the megalithic tomb Heringsberg also known as Grimschleben 1 or Ihringsbreite. This gigantic stone tomb is located near Grimschleben in the Salzlandkreis von Saxony Anhalt / Germany. According to an ancient myth the Thuringian hero Iring is said to be buried here, as the name of the grave slightly indicates. Other interpretations claim that prince Buzico (Dietrich von Buzici) has found his final resting place here. The current queen of England is a descendent of his lineage. Of course neither of the two is really buried here as this monument was erected already in the Neolihic Age.

Band composer Fix adds: “This picture metaphorically expresses the historic and mystic continuity of the song´s content. A beautiful 5000 year-old cultural monument from the Neolithic Age which has been used for buria…

Just a few weeks ago, we recorded demo versions with Anssi Kippo, who also recorded and produced 'One Man Army'. The demo session went smoothly, and working with Anssi is always such a pleasure because he is so full of creative ideas with a positive attitude. The goal for the new album will be to capture Ensiferum's live energy on the songs, and we also plan to use analog recording as much as …
