Wolfhorde releases digital tribute EP to roots of Finnish Folk Metal

With this release we want to show where our biggest musical inspiration comes from and how long and diverse is the history of Finnish Folk Metal, which leads back to early 90’s death metal of Amorphis, to Epic Heathen Metal of Moonsorrow and finally to humppa-infused black metal of Finntroll.

All these bands are bound together, but everyone with their very different styles of music. Even the language of every song is another. We thought that a compilation of these unique songs should definately make an interesting time travel to roots of this genre of music…
