Ensiferum / Metsatoll / Pythia
Finland’s folk metallers find the hero within
Tonight’s openers PYTHIA  look the part but they sound like a rusty washing machine.
Knowing how good their folky bombast sounds on record, we can only put it down to a bad day. Conversely, METSATÖLL  are epic. Their recipe of bagpipes, flute and throat singing with upbeat, Estonian metal and a Celtic twist gets the whole place in the mood for more.
