Pimea Metsa are a band from Spain that plays a viking form of folk metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "No blood, No Glory" which will be released on December 23rd by WormHoleDeath Records.
Symphonic and epic sounding keyboards start off the album and after awhile folk instruments are added onto the recording and they also mix in with the heavier side of the music and the solos and leads are done in more of a melodic fashion and the vocals bring in a mixture of black metal screams and aggressive pagan singing.
A great amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and death metal growls are also utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and back up shouts can also be heard at times and some songs also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars.
Pimea Metsa plays a musical style that takes viking and folk metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Northern Mythology, Epic Battles and Nature.
In my opinion Pimea Metsa are a very great sounding mixture of viking and folk metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Viking's Creed" "Einherjer" "Call To Arms" and "Cry For Freedom". 8 out of 10.
