Further proof that metal and its genres have no geographic
boundaries, we have a Viking metal band from ... Spain?
True enough, Runic is that band, formed in 2001, releasing
an MCD in that year, and then going through a major
lineup overhaul in the succeeding years before releasing
their debut full-length album, Liar Flags
, in 2006.
sounds every bit like a Scandinavian metal
album, borrowing from both Viking and melodic death
influences so that the result sounds like neither a true
Viking band nor a typical Swedish melodeath band either.
A fine effort from a band that might be on the rise.
