EP Tribute To The Roots Of Finnish Folk Metal Announced By Wolfhorde

Finnish folk metal band Wolfhorde will release the tribute EP "The Great Old Ones" on December 1st via Inverse Record. The EP features covers of Finntroll, Moonsorrow and Amorphis - the roots of Finnish folk metal. A teaser clip can be heard in the player below.

From the core, Wolfhorde is a folk metal band, but after all categories don’t really mean that much. With this release we want to show where our biggest musical inspiration comes from and how long and diverse is the history of Finnish folk metal, which leads back to early 90’s death metal of Amorphis, to Epic Heathen Metal of Moonsorrow and finally to humppa-infused black metal of Finntroll.

All these bands are bound together, but all with very distinct styles of music. Even the language of every song is another. We thought that a compilation of these unique songs should definitely make an interesting time travel to roots of this genre of music in Finland.

”I think we should remember to sometimes forget about categorization of music and just enjoy the different range of varieties. With the release of this tribute EP titled 'The Great Old Ones,' Wolfhorde wants to show the range of different elements within the genre. Just sit back and enjoy good music.”, says Werihukka – the composer and guitar player of Wolfhorde.

The track listing for the EP is:

1. Jaktens Tid (Finntroll cover)
2. Kylän Päässä (Moonsorrow cover)
3. Sign From The North Side (Amorphis cover)
