Moonsorrow (Finland)

Finnish metalband“Moonsorrow” since the middle of the nineties completes their characteristic dark black-metal sound with elements from Finnish folklore – however, unlike several other bands from this region “Moonsorrow” has distanced themselves from the so called Viking metal as well as the joyful folk-metal by bringing the listener into the world full of dark mythology. Not in vain since early recordings “Moonsorrow” has resigned from singing in English, and their texts often includedirect quotations from ancient Scandinavian singing. Pagans according to beliefs, metalists by musical choices - “Moonsorrow” is rightly considered one of the genre cult groups.
