When all else in my life is in shambles, I can always count on Finntroll to pick me up. Their commitment to a darker variety of folk metal while maintaining a light humppa undertone has served them well and gotten me out of many a funk. Folk metal is to Finntroll as red [...]
The album art and track list for Finntroll’s newest album, Blodsvept, is finally here! Blodsvept‘s cover art, as usual, was drawn and painted by Finntroll guitarist Samuli “Skrymer” Ponsimaa and is extraordinarily and appropriately creepy.
Blodsvept, Finntroll’s sixth album, was recorded in during late 2011 and will be released on March [...]

HearEvil’s one-year anniversary is on December 21, 2012, the day the world is totally not going to end. Of course, the apocalypse is metal as hell, so I still wanted to write about it, but I didn’t want to mar our anniversary celebrations with all that “end [...]
After almost a month of tireless work in the studio and a few technical hiccups, folk metal legends Finntroll have finally completed work on their newest (and still untitled) album. Their newest Facebook status update reflects their collective relief:

This album, which for obvious reasons doesn’t have a name yet, will be Finntroll’s sixth full-length and the third [...]
SatanaKozel are (in no particular order): Dmitry Dobrynin (keyboard, vocals), Nickolay Kuskov (drums), Vasiliy Kuzkov (guitar, vocals), Mr. Magister (bass), Vladimir Savvateev (guitar). One of these people is not pictured, and I am not sure who. Sorry.
Back when I was but a wee folk metal fan, I always wondered why the [...]
I know what you’re all thinking — what new and exciting New York City thrash and/or death metal band is She-Wolf going to write about today? Well, my loyal readers, I’m not as predictable [...]
As if it wasn’t good enough news that Paganfest, a much-celebrated folk/Viking metal fest, is coming back to the United States after passing the US over in 2011, Turisas has put the icing on the cake by announcing that they will headline Paganfest 2012! Turisas has been at the forefront of [...]
Even the most sheltered women among us are intimately familiar with objectification. From the second a girl reaches puberty, she’s subject to catcalls, whistles and stares. A lot of us, including myself, believe we have “safe [...]
