FOLKEARTH – Balder’s Lament (2014)
We all know some epic folk metal bands like Korpiklaani, Tyr, Moonsorrow, and so many others but one of the greatest in Folk/Viking Metal have returned with a new album this year. Folkearth is an international music project created in 2003 by musicians playing folk and viking metal. The name (folk + earth) symbolizes musicians from all over the world playing folk music. Balder’s Lament is their 12th full-length album and it will be released via Stygian Crypt Productions, sometime soon. Balder’s Lament will be the first work of the band after the sad news that their founding member Metfolvik (Ravenclaw, Folkodia) passed away. This album belongs in the “metal” repertoire of Folkearth, who have also released some acoustic albums in the past.
