artist: Blood Folke
I checked these guys out when I found out my band was playing a show with them. I managed to find their demo and a live show (their first) online. I honestly listened to nothing else for about 4 days. After playing with them (their second show) I was totally blown away, and I asked if I could work on this release with them. Blood Folke is an incredible three-piece from the Twin Cities. They bring together a host of influences to form one of the most unique sounds I’ve heard in metal in years. Dan Wieken’s doom-laden guitar riffs and uneartly vocals blend with Lauren Gaffney’s discordant viola. Both are rounded out with Bryan Pierson’s precise pounding to form a cohesive, blend of doom, post-rock, and black metal.
