Vintersorg – Solens rötter



“Solens rötter”

Bought out of nothing more than curiosity and cheap price, the sticker on the front says it all: “Nordic folk metal comeback of the year!”  Indeed, it is (minus the comeback part, since I never knew they were “away”). Living in an area that is Scandinavian-heavy in its ancestry, my curiosity for their culture has always been on the back-burner.  I know that the Scandinavian culture has a rather large presence in metal, so why not blend it with “folk sounds” (acoustic guitars, wind instruments like flutes)?!

Grade: C+

Favorite Track: Döpt i en jökelsjö (Baptized in a Glacier Lake)

Second Favorite: Spirar och gror (Sprouts and Germinates)
