Forest King – Lore Born

With ominous war chants, thunderous horns, and bolstering battle drums from a time long ago… Comes, the Forest King! Hailing from Idaho, the band’s first release, Lore Born is an axe ripper from start to finish! No frills here! Just straight, in-your-face death metal with some great thrash-tastic riffage and killer folk metal harmonies, akin to the senses of a berserker from his mead induced trance before the battle. With track names as “Troll Stench”, “Sacred Mead” and “Who Will Write Your Saga?” One can only fathom it might be found amidst a skald’s lost poems. A good, solid release throughout and some good head bangers towards the end of this album, I give it 8/10 axes. For fans of Skeletonwitch, Amon Amarth, Wintersun.

What can we say about this show, Abbath!! The Norwegian Black Metal Icon formerly of Immortal has gone solo and has just released a new album through Season of Mist. This is sure to be a treat for metal fans and when you throw in High on Fire and Skeletonwitch into the mix you have quite the lineup. Even if you are not a fan of these bands I suggest you go and check it out! There will be something for everyone’s musical tastes.
