Proving that there’s far more resonance to be gained from the folk/metal alliance than a knees-up and songs about beer, Drudkh mainman Roman Sayenko has gathered eight bands from across Europe, asked them to delve deep into their musical heritage, reinterpret it for a compilation album that gives voice to the timeless and unifying nature of traditional music.
Released on May 23 (May 27 in North America) via Season Of Mist Records, One And All, Together, For Home features the likes of the UK’s Winterfylleth, Ireland’s Primordial, Norway’s Kampfar and Ukraine’s Drudkh themselves as you’ve never heard them before.
Thanks to the elders of SOM Records, we have an exclusive preview as we reveal Primordial’s heart-stopping take on Liam Weldon’s folk classic Dark Horse On The Wind, transforming the raw, a cappella ode to the pain of Ireland’s civil war into a rich, drone-borne lament that will retune your brainwaves into a boundless alpha state.
Delve into the song below and prepare for time and your heart to dissolve…
