Falls of Rauros - The light that dwells in rotten wood

Genre : Folk black metal

Finding good, sincere, and non-viking oriented folk black metal to bring you is a real pain, believe me. Luckily enough, I've been able to find Falls of Rauros, and if you don't know about them yet, it's high time to fix this terrible mistake. The light that dwells in rotten wood is an amazing and epic piece of music, with every element you need to get perfect folk black. Vocals are strong and sincere, yet kept enough in the background to let the guitars shine. And those guitars really need to, for they throw away amazing riffs, melodies, folk parts, and powerful rhythms. Bass and drums have to be mentioned too, as they do a perfect background work, which will really give you shivers, as they carry and support the melodies at best. No happy drunk viking, beers or dragon slaying here, but definitely a perfect nature-bound folk black.

Now really, please check out Awaiting the fire or flood that awakes it and Silence. You know you want to, because you wonder why I'm so excited about it. And follow Falls of Rauros on Facebook.
