LATVIAN PAGAN METAL GREATS, SKYFORGER, BACK WITH THEIR 6TH STUDIO ALBUM!
For the last decade, SKYFORGER have been fighting under the flag of Latvian pagan metal; an extreme blend of traditional Baltic folk music and various metal influences ranging from Norwegian inspired black metal through to 80s-rooted heavy metal.
The band's unique combination of ancient and modern influence has given them a wide appeal throughout both the metal and folk scenes and has brought great variety to their song writing over the course of all five previous SKYFORGER albums.
The band’s latest album and Metal Blade debut, ‘Kurbads’, is a conceptual record about the legendary Latvian fairytale hero Kurbads, who was born magically from the white mare and did many great deeds.
With ‘Kurbads’, SKYFORGER finally take their well-deserved place among the absolute elite of the booming folk / pagan metal movement.
