Origin: Finland
Genres: Black Metal

Wyrd  


This Finnish band has been around for quite awhile, debuting in 2001 and putting out a release almost every year since then, though the only album reviewed here is 2009's Kalivägi. They are usually labelled as pagan black metal, which in this case translates to a black metal base infused with a fair bit of the folk/viking style, though they don't belong in either of those genres. It's an interesting sound, with several influence peeking through that give the band a bit of originality.
