Skiltron – re-issues (2015)
rgentina’s Skiltron have reissued their first 3 albums with bonus material on each album. Now, if you don’t have a least one Skiltron album in your collection already then what have you been doing? They are probably the biggest folk metal band from South America and have churned out 4 amazing folk metal albums releases over their 10+ year history. With some major festivals shows this summer (most notably Wacken) this is the perfect time for you to pick up these gems before you go see them if you don’t already own them. Each album has at least 5 bonus songs, either being demo or live versions of songs or a couple of covers (“The Ballad Of William Kidd” by Running Wild and “Spinning Jenny” by Skyclad) With a major Scottish/Celtic influence, Skiltron use the pipes and whistle better than most bands, even ones from the UK and Ireland. They tend to have songs that are anthems and get the crowd going for sure….upbeat battle songs with a power metal feel….think folk metal versions of Hammerfall or Lost Horizon come to mind. The live tracks do show how tight a band they are live...

Obscurity - Vintar
ermanys most popular Viking/Death Metal Band Obscurity will soon release their 7th full-length album entitled “Vintar“. It will be released through Trollzorn / SMP Records at 28.11.2014.
“Vintar” consists of the Scandinavian word for winter (vinter) and the old German word (wintar). It is a symbolism of the union of all Germanic peoples. “Vintar” was recorded, mixed and mastered at the “4CN-Studios” by Tim Schuldt. Obscurity have just revealed the album tracklist, the beautiful cover artwork by Jan Yrlund “Darkgrove” and a few words about the lyrics. “Vintar” features a lyrical concept, based on Nordic mythology, a fictional lore after Ragnaroek. In the ancient times of Old-Midgard former legislation is repealed, many peoples are afflicted and subjugated, only a few have actually survived the Twilight of the Gods. The core of Vintar’s tales, narrated by a long-serving warrior, is the new continent “Wodanheim”. On their search for a safe haven, this is where the surviving peoples find a new place to live. Geographically Wodanheim is located in the heart of nowadays Europe, its center being the “Bergisch Land”. The strong force in Wodanheim are the diehard and stubborn Tenkterer. It is their main intention to unite the surviving peoples, to build up a new efficient cultural community, based on Germanic substructures – a new Germanic alliance. Banded together through the resistance against destructive external influences, the fight against the “enemies”, who regard Wodanheim as a thorn in their side, an unbearable burden, because: not only the alleged “good” has survived Ragnaroek…
01. Schicksal der Götter / 02. Naglfar / 03. Nebelwelt / 04. Wodanheim
05. Alter Feind / 06. Vintar / 07. Dominium / 08. Alte Zeichen
09. Sieg oder Niedergang / 10. Feld der Ehre / 11. Legiones Montium

Nothgard CD release coming soon!
ere are the first details of the upcoming new album "AGE OF PANDORA" from germanys Melodic Death Metal Band NOTHGARD:
NOTHGARD is a German Epic Melodic Death Metal Band. (Vocalist & Lead-Guitarist Dom R. Crey recently joined German top-notch Epic Metal act EQUILIBRIUM !) Their 2nd full-length "Age Of Pandora" will be released at Sept., 12.!!! With their new and second album "Age Of Pandora" NOTHGARD is heading straight towards to originality, technical finesse and maturity. The outstanding formation stands out for 3 technical guitars and epic orchestral parts combined with influences of Folk, Classic, Melo-Death and Hard Rock. "With 'Age Of Pandora' we've made, what we haven't reached with it's album predecessor. Aggression combined with harmony, technical parts combined with silent nuanced, more emotional, orchestral passages. Even on lyrical level I'm very satisfied this time. There are no clichés at all on these new album, but true real-life topics and very own feelings, which have a deep meaning for me and the band.
Simply perfect for our fans to get eventually 'lyrical mirrored' so to say." (Dom R. Crey) In April 2011 NOTHGARD has released their debut album called "Warhorns Of Midgard", which received rave reviews. In the same month they performed their first European tour together with Skyforger, Heljareyga, Gernotshagen, Kromlek and Northland. 2012 Skaahl of the mighty WOLFCHANT joined NOTHGARD as their 3rd guitarist. Since then the line-up is constant and stronger than ever. The new material of NOTHGARD will be bombastic, epic and very technical simply because all three guitars establish a new way of a harmonic interplay between rhythm and double-leads. Beside this "Guitar-Orchestra" the orchestra parts of the keys ensure pure epicness and heroic power all along the line.

Cruachan sign to Trollzorn Records!
e are very proud to announce that Irish Folk Metal legends, Cruachan, have signed to Trollzorn Records, for the release of their eagerly awaited seventh studio album!
Trollzorn Records is honoured to celebrate our tenth anniversary with the signing of Cruachan. We are all big Cruachan fans here and have followed the band over a number years, so it’s a real coup for us to welcome them on board. We look forward to releasing the new Cruachan album towards the end of 2014.
Cruachan has undergone something of a rebirth since the release of Blood On The Black Robe back in 2011 with the recruitment of a second guitarist, Kieran Ball, drummer, Mauro Frison and bassist, Eric Fletcher.
Founder, Keith Fay had this to say: "We are excited about working with Trollzorn, they are a young, fresh and energetic label but also have the experience of AFM records in distribution and Sure Shot Worx for promotion who we have worked with before so we have every faith in a strong collaboration. The new album will be finished this summer and will take what we started on “blood on the Black Robe” to another level. We think this new one will give the Folk Metal genre the kick in the ass it needs."
The band has a busy year ahead. Work began on the new album last year at Trackmix Studios in Dublin and recording is expected to be completed in July. Cruachan recently returned from a successful tour of Russia and the band is looking forward to a spate of festival appearances and headline shows across Europe, including Hornerfest in Germany in June and Brutal Assault in the Czech Republic later in the summer.

Dark Troll Festival
ild “trolling” on the Schweinsburg
Starting on the 29th until 31st of May, the Dark Troll Festival 5 will be celebrating it’s fifth edition located at the “Schweinsburg in Bornstedt" (Sachsen-Anhalt close to Halle/Saale). More than 20 international acts covering diverse metal genres are invited in order to make this festival a memorable event along with the exceptional surroundings that shouldn’t be missed by anyone!
A true pearl among the insider tips of the festival-scenery opens it’s gates once again in May. This time the festival will even begin on Thursday already, thus expanding it’s quantity. The main act during those three days will be Netherland’s “Heidevolk” who will overwhelm their audiences with heroic melodies and get the party going. In addition, “Cryptic Forest” will present songs from their EP “Dawn of the Eclipse” which they have never performed live before. The young band “Firtan” are also presenting something special, by introducing their new album. Fans and to-be fans of the bands “Falloch” and “Celtachor” can look forward to their first gigs in Germany!
All this will be available with a fair entrance-fee of just 29.90 Euros.
Whoever wants to use the nearby campsite will need to pay an additional fee of 5€ + 5€ waste deposit. This is a real bargain, especially considering that it includes usage of showers. On site there will of course be enough food and drinks to tend for all bodily comforts as well as reenactment performances to pleasure the eye.
Signs are pointing to a true highlight of the year to spend some memorable days amongst familiar company and bonfire romances.
