Imagine mixing the best musical and vocal elements of Bathory and Korpiklaani and coming up with one memorable band, you guessed it: Bloodshed Walhalla. Their music is a killer mixture of heavy metal meets folk metal, with hints of rock, and this is what makes “The Battle Will Never End” an interesting listen.
The many unique elements coloring their music, such as sound bytes of forests, owls hooting and an oncoming snow blizzard gives their music a much needed depth, holding the listener’s attention. You feel as if you are apart of their auditory journey, which is really good because it is the best way of experiencing this group’s style of unique metal.
Personally, it is the band’s upbeat attitude within their songs, which make it a hit for me as who wants to be depressed as a dark gray sky, which is about to burst open. Do not be surprised if you find yourself with your fists raised in the air and headbanging to Bloodshed Walhalla’s victorious-sounding folkloric heavy metal.
Highly recommended for fans of Bathory, Korpiklaani, Manowar, Finntroll and Alestorm. [Fog Foundation] Sarjoo Devani
