Svartsot  


Svartsot is a newer addition to the rising Scandinavian folk metal scene, recording demos in 2006 and 2007 before signing to Napalm Records and releasing Ravnenes Saga in 2007. This is rollicking folk metal at its best, melodic and heavy at the same time, with Stewart Lewis' flutes and whistles more than just an afterthought, they give each song a welcome added folky element. Vocally the band relies on standard death (usually) and black (sometimes) styles, a bit different for folk metal, but it works well here. A band to keep an eye on, as they already rank among the best in their field. Apparently only guitarist Christoffer Frederiksen remains from the Saga lineup, as the rest of the band left, citing business differences.
