Myrkgrav - Vonde Auer (CD Review)


01.Vonde Auer
02.Vonde Auer (Traditional Version)

Lars Jensen: (All Instruments/Vocals)
Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Hardanger Fiddle)
Erlend Antonsen (Bass)



Folk metal band formed in 2003 by Lars Jensen.
Vonde auer features lyrics based on folklore from Ringerike in Norway.



So the first version is really cool, great use of traditional and modern instruments, the song sounds like Rammstein jamming with Turisas!
Quite typical of folk metal but this just seems to stand out, some great timing and tempo changes as the song goes along we get little hints of death metal as well.
The Traditional version is just the fiddle and at a couple of minutes long is just about enough.

Rating 8/10
For fans of: Turisas, Tanzwut, Elvenking, Burzum
