Pillage and Burn With Myrkvar

Myrkvar is an energetic Dutch folk metal band from the Netherlands. The characteristic sound is best described as a mix of folky 'humpah' violin lines followed by fast guitar riffs and blasting drums. The fierce grunt and scream vocals are combined with clean vocals creating a firm folk sound. The lyrics tell the tales of the epic Norse mythology.(bandcamp bio)

This is a sweet Ep. Mixing violins with metal is something that always has me smiling, and Myrkvar pull it off exceptionally well. Their four track ep Plunder en Brand takes the listener on an epic tale, telling the rise and fall of Atilla the Hun. This is great folk metal, give it a listen below.
