Guest review by
In looking for some new folk bands to listen to I stumbled across the Russian band Svartby and decided to pursue their latest album: Riv, Hugg Och Bit. Why? Their Myspace had some pretty interesting songs that seemed to defy the growing clichés present in the ever stagnating folk metal genre. Unfortunately the experience is extremely hit or miss.

Their second best album and the carrier of their best track Humus. Humus might even give finntrolls best songs a run for their Money. Which is quite an impressive feat, in my opinion Humus is just as good as the all famous track trollhammaren but with it's own appeal. It should be a crime that Svartby are not more well-known. Any finntroll fan should at least give them a listen.
