Månegarm: Månegarm

Album Review

Swedish folk metallers still trying to find their balance

If anyone’s still in doubt, these Swedes offer another reminder that there’s more to folk metal than kilts and drinking songs.

This has all the dancing rhythms and rustic melodies you could want, but is cast in a mournful, earthy tone with more nods to Hammerheart than Hammerfall, even when at its more fun moments (Odin Owns Ye All, for instance) and the hint of black metal bite stops it sounding twee.
