Folkearth: Father of Victory

Father of Victory is the fourth release from Folkearth, a band whom started in 2004. Folkearth is a culmination of musicians from different countries who perform pagan and folk metal, this release features twenty performers from such places as USA, Greece, Italy, France, England, Wales and Lithuania. Members of the band originate from such acts as Moonrot, Peordh, Annwn and Dol Amroth.

This latest release features twelve tracks of folk Viking metal, as you can imagine there is much variation in the vocals presented on this CD from clean female and male performances to darker blacker metal moments. There are heavier moments and many lighter times to be heard with some mixed results. A multitude of instruments are utilized through this recording such as violin, flute, celtic harp, tin whistle and soprano recorder, working well with the usual drums, bass and guitar.

Due to large number of contributions the tracks are quite varied such as title track "Father of Victory" an acoustic song which is followed by the heavier and darker "Charles Martel" but still retains the traditional instruments.

The results of this formula must have been successful so far, with more releases in the works from Folkearth, an acoustic album Songs Of Yore is out now and a fifth album Fatherland is planned.
