Description

Pārķiuņa Uomurs (Thunder’s Hammer) is the fourth studio album from Latvian group Varang Nord. As with previous albums, it still combines harsh death metal riffs with epic accordion chants, creating a unique blend of northern pagan/folk metal, but for the first time in band’s history, all the lyrics are written in the Latgalian language (an eastern dialect of Latvian). The album is proudly dedicated to Varang Nord’s homeland, the power and beauty of it’s nature and the depth of it’s cultural roots.

The album was produced by the band and recorded at their personal studio. Mixing and mastering was by Gints Lundbergs at the well-known Latvian Sound Division Studio. Traditional instruments like medieval bagpipes and talharpa were recorded by the talented Alyona Fomina (MJØD). All the orchestral arrangements were done by a young upcoming composer named Yuri Borin and the powerful basslines were created by the legendary Serge Karshev (Neglected Fields, Preternatural).

Varang Nord are a folk/pagan metal band from the cold woodlands of Latvia. Their songs praise mighty battles, bloody sacrifices to the Old Gods and joyful northern feasts with endless mugs of ale. Time to join the festivities!

    Oscillating between folk and metal, at the borders of Slavic, Scandinavian and Germanic influences, Varang Nord distils a punchy music, with heady and catchy melodies. Compared to the previous material, the compositions are stronger, more accomplished and neat both in the placement of each instrument and on the chosen melodic lines. The orchestration, the arrangements do not escape to this general trend as well …read more

    Varang Nord understands how to give the folk instruments such as the accordion (mainly,but not only) enough room to create​ very folky melodies and harmonies combined​ with​ heavy guitar riffs, great​ drums performances and strong vocals. The album is coming with 11 tracks including the Intro and the Outro with​ a playing time of 48 minutes and shows​ no weakness at all. In my opinion​ the most mature and so far strongest​ release of Varang Nord …read more

    Difficult to do justice to an album of this quality, or to convey the power of its impact. It’s just an outstanding reflection of atmosphere, capturing the true, original essence of the time and its level of passion and intricacy is unfalteringly and extraordinarily delivered. ‘PU’ is beyond stunning, displaying a superior level of craftsmanship …read more

    Varang Nord haben zweifelsohne ein ganz gefälliges Werk abgeliefert. Die Vertonung des Wikingerlebens – mit all seinen Höhen und Tiefen – ist ihnen gelungen. Von Schlachthymnen über Reiselieder bis hin zu festlichen Trinkanimationen ist alles vertreten. Die vielversprechenden Ansätze könnten der Equipe eine glorreiche Zukunft bescheren. Völlig aus dem Nichts gewinnt man ja nicht eben mal rasch einen Wacken Metal Battle …read more
