About

I founded Sword Chant on november 10, 2007. It started with a forum and this blog is up since august 25, 2013.
This site deals with Folk Metal, Celtic Music, Traditional, Medieval & Pagan Folk/Rock.

Folk Metal is an eclectic music within metal (heavy, black, death, power...) and Folk Music (traditional folk, celtic, medieval...). Instruments used are the common guitar, bass, drums and synth some times, but also violin, hurdy gurdy, bagpipes, and other ancestral folk instruments.

Lyrics are mostly based on Celtic and Norse mythologies, paganism, nature, the past times and wars left behind but fantasy ones can also be found. Find here lyrics and their translations to English or French, shared with permission.

Official music videos and shows are available into the videos' part of the menu while full streaming for records are under the full stream part. Interviews and reviews are also on this site.

Sword Chant supports bands with respect to their rights, by sharing their news, their crowd funding projects, their new releases, upcoming shows and lyrics.

Be welcome!

SHARING

Why do you ban artwork or video ?
I may refuse to share artwork or video because I don't want to hurt the people through things available on this website and, everybody should feel concerned from a moment something is going to be shared to the public. Some symbols related with world war shouldn't feat. on artwork. Runes or Ogham shouldn't be a problem since they are Norse and Celtic writing, like shorthand is.

Why don't you share the video ?
I only share videos from official sources (band, label...) but offensive videos won't be available on this site.

Also, I don't share videos available on page from somebody who publicly misrespected me or this website, unless public excuses. No other ways to solve it.

MY ADVICES TO BANDS

  • Create all your own official pages, sharing your music and videos to the world.
  • Warrior or not, be careful with symbols.
  • Don't hurt the people with your art and design.
  • Email me your news, tourdates and request at anytime
