For fans of Moonsorrow, Finntroll, Windir, Equilibrium, Ensiferum, Kalmah, Wintersun
NORDHEIM Premiere New Track “I Wish You Were Beer” via New Noise Mag
New Album About Bacon And Dinosaurs “RapThor” Out Nov 24th
So many bands make listeners choke from their sheer delusional pretentions of grandeur. Not Quebec City’s NORDHEIM, their philosophy is simply to make fun folk metal, as can be evidenced in their latest offering “RapThor” due out November 24th, 2017. Influenced by bands such as Finntroll, Ensiferum, Kalmah and Wintersun, NORDHEIM‘s third studio recording featuring eight tracks with titles such as “Troll Riding A Raptor”, “Boobs And Bacon” and “Dragonthorn” is dedicated to the epic flavour of bacon, the colossus power of dinosaurs and more.
“We want to give the fans one of the heaviest and nastiest folk metal albums to date with ‘RapThor’. It is different from our first two. We had great feedback when we played the songs live. This album is the heaviest of them all while cutting back on the European folklore influences. It’s the result of our hard work over the last few years. It is super-heavy party music!” says Warraxe.
Teaming up with New Noise Magazine, the band is premiering their first single “I Wish You Were Beer”.
“You know the feeling you get when you are impaling a busty T-Rex with your giant throbbing errecsword while lightning strikes you and transforms your hand into a fucking laser-cobra? Well this song isn’t close to that but it’s still pretty good.”

So many bands make listeners choke from their sheer delusional pretentions of grandeur. Not Nordheim, their philosophy is simply to make fun folk metal, as can be evidenced by titles such as ‘Boobs and Bacon’ and ‘I Wish You Were A Beer’!
Inspired by Wintersun, Windir, Finntroll, Equillbrium, and Carcass, guitarist and singer, and main songwriter Warraxe describes Nordheim’s sound as ‘fast, heavy, festive, cold, and catchy!’
Warraxe explains that Nordheim are truly a band of brothers. ‘We are a bunch of guys from Bellechasse, a small region south of the St-Laurent River in the province of Quebec. We were long-time friends and have metal as a common passion, one thing leads to another and we started a band.’
Live Nordheim really show their sense of fun. “When we play live it’s a frickin’ party! We move a lot, scream, hump the air, we drink from the fans’ beer bottles and in turn, we feed them beer, with the help of our friends and roadies coming up on stage and pouring beer in their faces. Usually between songs I’ll be making jokes about anything I can think of, as long as it’s dumb and incoherent! We have a strong sense of ‘bro-ness’ with our fans!”
