Promised Land gets you a different take on Viking Metal compared to what we see from the established folks these days. They serve a brutal, folksy, yet epically melodic version of Viking Metal or – if you prefer – Pagan Metal served in a blackened Death Metal wrapper. Their tune packs enough variety, musical savvy and pretty sturdy musicianship to differentiate themselves from the existing crowd.
I love you all! Thank you MDs and Djs!

Hey German friends! Valfreya review is in the new Metal Hammer issue (Steel Panther on cover) – https://www.metal-hammer.de/die-metal-hammer-april-ausgabe-2017-steel-panther-leserpoll-obituary-mastodon-slayer-comic-body-count-kreator-tourbericht-u-v-a-780725/
Well, I can’t speak for anyone else, but current events have driven me somewhere I haven’t been in years.
strong mixture of raging folk tunes and fiery black metal rhythms makes this one a fine choice for aficionados of folk-influenced black metal or this type of material in general.
Valfreya is the real deal, in both the catchy components they provide as well as the ability to crank up the adrenaline and maintain an authentic metallic edge. If you are looking for some folk-infused material with some bite still behind it, Promised Land should suit your needs amicably.
