After spending the last weeks sharing various audio excerpts from the effort, Swiss Pagan/Folk-metalband NORVHAR just released their debut EP with‘KAUNA’, available right now for CD & Digital formats on Bandcamp and the main legal platforms.
In addition to the official release-news, the band also streamed the full-effort at the same locations.
Formed in 2016 from the ashes of the band Harmoniks, NORVHAR is oriented towards pagan/folk/epic metal. It consists of six skilled musicians, all of them with stage experiences.
Those six friends offer a music which is inspired, epic, melodic, but which also makes you want to drink beers until the end of times. Vastly inspired by Tolkien’s universe, but also by Nordic mythology, the texts are dense and deep, filled with adventures and battles, with mystical tales and latent alcoholism.
The folk melodies, sometimes played on the keyboard, sometime on the flute or on acoustic instruments, intermingle with powerful and sharp guitars, all punctuated by intense bass and battle-like drums.
The vocals, straight out of the plains of Valhalla are calling the warriors to battle by their unquenchable fire. NORVHAR is going to release an album at the beginning of 2019.
