The name of the band was inspired by Celtic Frost’s song “Sorrows of the Moon”
Genre: Folk/Pagan/Black Metal
Lyrical Themes: Paganism, Legends, War, Folklore, End of the World
The band originally started out as a black metal band. Over time they started adding folk elements to their music and eventually Moonsorrow evolved into a pagan/folk metal band. This was evident in their debut album, “Suden Uni”. According to Metal-Archives, they have once again started reaching for a darker sound, starting with the “Verisäkeet” album.
The video for this song was put together by a fan who took clips from “Course of the Ring” by director Uli Edel.
