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!



Questions related to this site :

Is this website related with religion ?
No, this website is not related with religion but Music. Everybody is welcome here.

Politic and Sword Chant ?
Your political view doesn't matter but Sword Chant stands against hate in all its way.

How to get bandpage on this site ?
You will find all informations to that link : sword-chant.blogspot.com/p/bands

I want to share lyrics and translations on Sword Chant but ...how ?
Bands can send me their lyrics and translated lyrics if all rights owners related with the content agree with it.
Write explicit email giving me permission to share here official lyrics, official/unofficial translations attached (no link!) together with permission for translation to other languages.

How can I know the ended support for band, on this site ?
I don't support bands promoting hate in one way or another. Changed style is one other element.

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.

What about Folk/Punk ?
This website deals with Pagan/Folk Metal, and Folk Music (Celtic, Medieval, Trad, Pagan Folk/Rock and World music related with). That's big enough!

How to report something ?
If you find out something wrong here, or something that hurts, you can email me at anytime. I want you safe here.
