Midgard are a band from Ukraine that plays a mixture of folk, viking and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Tales Of Kreia" which will be released on August 18th by Sliptrick Records.
Melodic guitar solos and leads start off the album while death metal growls are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording along with the screams adding in touches of black metal. the riffs also add in a great amount of melody and blast beats are also utilized during the faster sections of the songs.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some songs also add in folk instruments. Female vocals can also be heard briefly along with the music also showing some influences of the Swedish style as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic yet old school style, clean male pagan vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can also be heard.
Midgard plays a musical style that takes folk, viking and melodic death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover fantasy themes and philosophical issues about life and death.
In my opinion Midgard are a very great sounding mixture of folk, viking and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necromancer" "Dwarf King" "Elven Blade" and "Ice Spirit". 8 out of 10.
