|A Folkin' Metal Tourney Discovery Round 2|
Love them or hate them, Windir have left a huge mark in folk black metal history. In this round, we see two such band that have taken inspiration from the fallen giant. Mistur, who features the ex-guitarist from Windir, faces off against Galar's well received 2015 release. Can an ex-member of Windir still write like in the glory days or has the new generation surpassed the old? You decide!
TheSpirit - black/folk/viking metal featuring members of Vreid and Windir... Need I say more?
GameofMetal -De Gjenlevende - Epic folk/black metal that calls to mind Bergtatt era Ulver and perhaps a sprinkling of Windir, with tons of sublime orchestrations to keep things as grand as possible.
|As of now, Myrkgrav is leading round 1 by a single vote. LEaving voting open on that one until the end of the day. |
Voting on this ends Wednesday
|Heard both of these already. Both rule, but I vote for 2.|
|Both of these sounded decent but neither wowed me like both from the last round did (was never a huge Windir fan so I guess that doesn't help)|
Will relisten to both though and cast my vote
|1, i guess. both aren't my thing.|
|Oh damn, I missed out on the introduction to this folk metal tourney! Really enjoyed the black metal tourney though, so this one is hopefully going to be just as interesting.|
|Def check out the first round man. Both those albums were solid as fuck|
|All of the albums in the tourney so far are impressive.|
