The original post

The thread for this excellent Black Folk Metal band from Sweden. "Vintersorg" means roughly "Winter Sorrow", the name was taken from the Isfolket series by Margit Sandemo, where the character Vintersorg is the son of a great pagan leader.

Though I don't know very much about their music, I really love this band, because of the music and for the lyrical themes - nature, science, philosophy, astronomy -

I only have the album "Ödemarkens Son" which in english means "The Son of The Wilderness", and some songs of the other albums, I'm looking forward to get the other ones.

So, what do you think about them?

That what I told them to do I also told them that they should read the lyrics before accusing me for being a nazi.....but if you listen to bands that are singing about sweden in swedish they're allways a rasist band in peoples eyes no matter what. It's sad really.

I'm getting more and more into them as of late. Comic Genesis is a great album. I like the earlier stuff a lot too. Maybe about as much. Vintersorg is such a creative genious.

The first song I heard from these guys was "Till Fjalls" and when I heard the vocals I pictured Paul Bunien...

Epic band, I love these guys, I think my favorite song would have to be Astral And Arcane.

I am resurecting the Vintersorg thread because I'm curious. What does everyone think about the new album?

For myself it hasn't replaced Till Fjalls on my list of favorite Vintersorg albums but it may just be my second favorite. I'm really glad he has gotten back into singing in his native tounge.

I am a fan of vintersorg. Espscielly the old stuff, but I really don't understand how it can be rated as "black folk metal". Folk metal yes, but...black?

I still haven't heard Solen Rotter, but I'm sure it'll be well worth getting - particularly promising with Vintersorg singing in his native language again. It would be nice if he returned to the deeper vocals that he used on the first few releases, too.

Needless to say, Otyg is practically essential for any Vintersorg fan that wants to hear some proper Scandinavian Folk Metal with Vintersorg's trademark deep melodic vocals.

I finally checked out this band today, looking for something different. Well I found it- Nice mix of progressive and folk, and very unique-Something that's hard to come by nowdays.

I was quite disappointed with their Jordpuls initially, but listened to it a few more times and found some quite enjoyable music to listen to. Don't think it ranks above the 'decent' Vintersorg albums such as The Focusing Blur and Visions From The Spiral Generator (certainly not the incredible Cosmic Genesis or Till Fjalls), but it's definetely enjoyable, bit misleading after hearing the first song though

I really thought after the first couple of minutes it was a return to the likes of Till Fjalls 0.0.

WTF, that's just crazy Vintersorg a nazi band ?? who was the idiot who said that??!!
I really think Sweden has issues with patriotism, they're always mixing it with being a rasist or nazi...I got to know that they changed their national song 'cause it contained "too many" mentions of how sweden was like as a country. That's what every f*ucking national song is about damnit! I thounght it was really weird, since a come originally from Chile and our song mentions everything that's good with it all way long.
