Haggard

BLACK SABBATH meets Johann Sebastian BACH? This may be a very loose description of the 16-member outfit from Munich, but the fact is their roots lie as much in death metal as in classical/medieval music. Their albums combine some fine classical moments (cello, flute, oboe, harp, violin as well as dreamy female vocals) with the iron riffs, growling male vocals and raw violence of death metal bands.

They have released a mini-CD in 1994 but fans of the genre have only praises for the subsequent two albums "And Thou Shalt Trust" "The Seer" (97) and "Awaking the Centuries" (00), both ...read more

BLACK SABBATH meets Johann Sebastian BACH? This may be a very loose description of the 16-member outfit from Munich, but the fact is their roots lie as much in death metal as in classical/medieval music. Their albums combine some fine classical moments (cello, flute, oboe, harp, violin as well as dreamy female vocals) with the iron riffs, growling male vocals and raw violence of death metal bands.

They have released a mini-CD in 1994 but fans of the genre have only praises for the subsequent two albums "And Thou Shalt Trust" "The Seer" (97) and "Awaking the Centuries" (00), both featuring heavy gothic themes yet beautiful melodies � both deal with the forecasts of Nostradamus. "Eppur Si Muove", released in 2004, still features wonderful musical moments but is more vocally oriented and the growling is a bit overdone, overshadowing/marring the beauty of the music. If you want to wallow in domesday fantasy, then HAGGARD will certainly transport you to other times in grand fashion and with stunning sonics. 2008 Brought aboard the new album Tales of Ithria

Fans of THERION or melodic death metal in general will certainly want to check them out. « hide
