One and All, Together for Home comes out May 23rd 2014

In an effort spearheaded by the Ukrainian band Drudkh, eight different Folk Metal bands have come together to produce a compilation album. I’ve included a list of the eight bands below:

  • Drudkh (Ukraine)
  • Ava Inferi (Portugal)
  • Primordial (Ireland)
  • KAMPFAR official (Norway)
  • Winterfylleth (England)
  • Häive (Finland)
  • HIMINBJORG OFFICIAL (France)
  • Mondvolland (Netherlands)

Each band listed above has used music as way to link the listener back to their culture’s respective folk traditions and history. In this album, you’ll find that these bands have created their own unique way to represent traditional folk songs as well as the melodies from their musical heritage.

The Irish band Primordial has recently released a preview of their Dark Horse on The Wind on Metal Hammer (a song that will appear on the One and All, Together For Home album). Dark Horse on The Wind is a folk classic that is an ode to the pain of Ireland’s Civil War. Enjoy!
