Heidevolk are a band from the Netherlands that plays a mixture of folk and pagan metal and this is a review of their album "Vuur Vsn Verzet" which will be released in 2018 by Napalm Records.
Heavy guitar riffs start off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and when vocals are added into the music they are mostly clean pagan metal singing as well as folk instruments also being used at times.
A touch of black metal can also be heard at times when growls and screams are used briefly while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with some songs also bringing in a small amount of acoustic guitars and as the album progresses a brief use of blast beats can be heard and when percussion's are utilized it gives the music more of a shamanistic feeling.
Heidevolk plays a style of pagan/folk metal that is very melodic while also mixing in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Dutch and cover History, Culture Of Gelderland and Germanic Mythology themes.
In my opinion Heidevolk are a very great sounding mixture of folk and pagan metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Wolf In My Heart" "Britannia" "Tiwaz" and "Woedend". 8 out of 10.
