Swedish Folk Metal. New Hymns by the Swedish Genius.
Mastermind and visionary Andreas Hedlund alias VINTERSORG has been playing an important role in the music scene since the early 90's. In particular, his two brilliant albums "Till Fjälls" or "Ödemarkens Son" became classics of the genre and brought new impulses to the Folk Metal scene. His latest album "Orkan" combines the best of two worlds. Namely, his folk tinged roots and the progressive songwriting of his latest works. The 8 tracks provide the listener with rousing and hymn-like refrains, extreme diversified vocal parts, superb riffs and brilliant melodies. Above all the compositions towers VINTERSORG?s highly unique vocals which show a wide range of new facets. The new opus is therefore a highly interesting and recommendable album, comprised of all periods of the Swedes creative musical life, thus achieving a whole new level of songwriting.
