Swedish Folk Metal trio LOMBOLO releases new song featuring Rietas

Swedish Folk Metal trio Lombolo will release their new single “Kung Agne” on May 24th. The song features vocals from Raisa Ylinampa of the Finnish folk metal band Rietas. A playthrough video accompanies the release and a music video for the song will be published in June. “Kung Ange” is the final single for the band’s upcoming sophomore album, “Här och Där” to be released in July 2023.

Preview the song:

With “Kung Agne,” Lombolo aims to give a modern perspective to the traditionally heroic legendary Swedish king Agne, whose huge burial mound lies close to the band’s childhood homes in Stockholm. According to the legend, Agne sails to Finland with his army and conquers it, killing the Finnish king in single combat. Rietas’ Raisa Ylinampa beautifully sings the part of Skjalf, the daughter of the Finnish king. Skjalf kills Agne after he kidnaps her and forces her to marry him. With a driving melodic death metal foundation, four vocalists and a plethora of folk instruments Kung Agne is a folk metal anthem for justice for women.
