  • Print

Finnish folk metal band Wolfhorde is releasing on 1st December via Inverse Records a tribute EP, The Great Old Ones, with three cover songs from the best known pioneers of Finnish metal music: Finntroll, Moonsorrow and Amorphis. These bands have been big inspiration to Wolfhorde and also to many others. From the core, Wolfhorde is a folk metal band, but after all categories don't really mean that much. With this release they want to show where their biggest musical inspiration comes from and how long and diverse is the history of Finnish folk metal, which leads back to early 90s death metal of Amorphis, to epic heathen metal of Moonsorrow and finally to humppa-infused black metal of Finntroll.
Werihukka, the composer and guitar player of Wolfhorde comments: "I think we should remember to sometimes forget about categorization of music and just enjoy the different range of varieties. With the release of this tribute EP titled The Great Old Ones, Wolfhorde wants to show the range of different elements within the genre. Just sit back and enjoy good music."
