Slavonic folk/pagan metal

  • Slavonic folk/pagan metal

    Hey folks! I'm new proud member of this group and I feel free to open this new tread.

    So, Slavonic Folk and Pagan Metal. Anyone listen to? Converse about best/worst bands and albums...

    There are realy good bands, Arkona, Volkolak, Alkonost, Pagan Reign, Svarga and many others.
    Also the Folk/Pagan Black Metal bands like Nokturnal Mortum, Inferno, The Stone, Temnozor, Kroda, May Result, Slavogorje...

    lets hear you :)

  • hehe

    hello slovenska krv :)
    yes, folk pagan bends with slavic themes are great
    did you tried izmoroz?

  • Yes, I think that albums name is "The Church Burn Under the Mountain" or something like that, they're good too ;)

    I'm quite fond of Zywiolak-- one of the few Slavonic bands I've found whose politics don't make me feel a little squidgy. Altar Shadows also makes some lovely folk-influenced black metal-- And Forests Took The Sun Away is a gorgeous album! I've listened to an Alkonost album, and I remember enjoying it.

  • Slavonic Folk

    Arkona, Volkolak, Alkonost, Pagan Reign, Svarga
    I think that in this list we can include GRAI (Грай) from Naberezhny Chelny (as Alkonost).
    I added all their songs in my player as I listened to them first... I also have Live Video of a song that will be included in their future album.

    Hey, what a nice discussion! I've got couple of questions I've wanted to ask someone so I'll just post them here:

    I've been planning to familiarize myself with Slavic music and mythology quite a long time, but the artists seem to be rather hard to find if your understanding of the languages is next to zero. Any ideas where to best listen them?

    I generally enjoy happy, versatile and energetic music, less often over-aggressive, melancholic or wannabe-viking sort. Which bands do you reckon would be ideal for me start with?

  • Žrec, Slavland, Rodogor, Simargl, and of course Arkona and Svarga.

  • oh nice topic! Slavic languages are almost a fetish for me, tho' i understand none of them... just how they sound so harsh and choppy, yet they make sense of it. bringing order from chaos.
    Alkonost, Slavogorje, Hromovlad, Ancestral Volkhves, Stribog, Kalevala and Radigost are my favourites. anything with a melkor is awesome. beauty and brutalty combined.. :O

    Za Vjecan Ponos i Cast!
  • For Slavonic languages and folk metal lovers :o)

    Чур, Опричь, Камаедзiца, Slavland

    Maybe I'm biased but I've always thought Slavs handle their folk/pagan metal the best.

  • I recommend folk rock artists from Russsia: Алевтина and Мельница, and also folk metal band from Poland called RadogosT.

    I haven't seen these bands mentioned - Кобь and Kurgan.

    They are more harsh, black metal type of slavic folk but have a lot of folk influence to them.
