I got both Walhalla Wacht and Der Stridjlust is Gebo at the same time and have been listening to both since. Holy crap! I’ve recently begun discovering the world of folk metal from various nations, especially Ireland and Scandinavia. This band is, in my opinion, the best folk metal band in the Scandinavian genre! Awesome.
If you’re into folk, metal, or just want to experience something different from your regular everyday music, check this out! They sing in Dutch, so if you don’t know the language (or a similar one, such as German or Icelandic), you’ll have to find a translation for the lyrics. Even without knowing the lyrics, though, the music is great.
This band specializes in haunting rhythms with clean guitars and folk instruments along with deep-throated vocals. A great mix that captures the Scandinavian musical heritage. With a name like Heidevolk (meaning “pagan people”), you can expect a lot of Norse Mythology to be included in their themes.
A great band and a couple of highly recommended albums!
