Varg-Wolfszeit (2007)

Some excellent folk/viking metal from Germany's Varg. They are a relatively new, up-and-coming band, and this is their first full-length. This is full of ass-kicking riffs, full of melody and folk influence, plenty of head bangable parts, mixing melodic death metal, power metal, and folk metal in a way that is, in some ways, similar to Ensiferum's approach. Varg, however, manages to retain their own unique sound that is definitely a good thing. Recommended to all fans of folk/viking metal! Heiden Klangwerke.
