Skyforger

Kurbads (Metal Blade)

Latvian pagans Skyforger describe sixth folkloric Kurbads as "about a young lad who was born from a bear and a human, became very strong, and went out into the world to fight evil and monsters." Bagpipes solo ("Son of the Mare"), acoustic underpinnings on a post-Motörhead roots rumble ("Bewitched Forest"), galloping shredfest ("The Devil Slayer"), and Finntroll-like sea shanty intros ("In the Underworld"): Baltic republicans endure.
