KORMAK ”Faerenus”

(Rockshots Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I am not a big fan of football but whenever I see the town of Bari being mentioned all I can think of is Swedish football players that have played for AS Bari. I cannot mention one single metal band from that city. Not until now that is. KORMAK is a folk metal band. Yes, that dreaded sub-genre that I have no real grip on. But to my ears this does not sound as much folk as I feared. To my ears this has more of an operatic feel to it. Sure, you get the flutes and lutes but the over all feel is that this is more symphonic than folk. Not that I don’t like folk. This is yet another strong Italian metal album. Anders Ekdahl
