I stumbled across this group on YouTube yesterday. I clicked on the thumbnail thinking it would be some sort of folk metal like Eluveitie. I was half right. It's folk music. Not sure if I'm allowed to post it here or not, but I'm going for it. LOL.


I found the part in the middle where the guys start "rapping" in English a little jarring, but I really dig the aesthetic here (particularly that of the woman, whose vocals I also like). I'm not a concert guy at all, but I could see myself going to and enjoying a show like this.

That is really cool. Indian costumes...is my guess. Proves that sticks and bones were the first instruments. :p

Here's an interesting Revolver article that provides a little background on them.

I bought Lifa the other day. I haven't gotten all the way through it, but I really like it so far. It's definitely different. You've gotta listen to this stuff with some good speakers or headphones. There's much more going on than I realized at first.


Yep, I think this would be a fun show to go to.

I would go see them just for the experience. I don't have a good sound system, sad, I know. i know I miss a lot of "sounds" with the lossy MP3's and crappy system.

Oh, I listen to mp3s all day long and don't have a fancy sound system either. I have a Bose radio but never get to use it since I live in a quiet apartment complex. I mostly use my $40 Audiophile in-ear headphones these days. Nothing spectacular, but definitely better than the little cheapie earbuds I used to get.

Normally not my cup of tea, but this performance is just amazing!

"Nemesis" Arch Enemy (2005, live 2016)

It took me a little while to get into Arch Enemy, but they're a really, really good band. Solid melodic death metal with a female growling vocalist and occasional hints of prog interspersed throughout. Just another good band on a long list of bands I need to create threads for.


But first, I've gotta listen to Ihsahn's new album, Ámr, which just came out today. I put it on for the drive to and from work today, and so far, so very, very good. :)

I'm not a big fan of metalcore, but this song grew on me after a few listens. The lead vocalist, Lauren Hart, did guest vocals on Kamelot's song "Phantom Divine" that I posted earlier in this thread.


They sound similar to Jinjer, another metalcore band that I actually like a lot.

Just stumbled on this album...thanks to YT recommendations. This is my 3rd listen and they remind me of Queensryche meets Judas Priest. Very Cool album cover, too.
