Wolfhorde are a band from Finland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a black metal influenced form of folk metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "The Great Old Ones" which will be released in December by Inverse Rewcords and consists of cover songs.
The ep starts out with a cover of Finntroll's "Jaktens Tid" which brings in a very heavy sound along with some keyboards and folk instruments while the screams are done in more of a black metal style and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard.
Next up is a cover of Moonsorrow's "Kylan Paassa" which starts out very heavy along with some atmospheric keyboards a few seconds later while folk instruments are also utilized at times and growls and screams are also used in some parts of the song as well as the track being 7 minutes in length, melodic vocals are also used briefly.
Closing the ep is a cover of Amorphis's "Sign From The North Side" which starts out with heavy guitar riffs along with some death metal growls while also adding in keyboards briefly as well as a touch of doom metal and the music sticks to mostly a slow or mid tempo direction as well as a small amount of ethnic style instruments and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of mlody.
On this recording Wolfhorde pays tribute to the band that have had a huge influence on their side, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Finnish and English and cover Paganism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wolfehorde and if you are a fan of black and folk metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Sign From The North Side". 8 out of 10.
