Brothers Of Metal - Dong Open Air 2022
Little did the eight young Swedes from Falun and Smedjebacken know when they founded the band in 2012 that they would be considered the hottest genre newcomers in the scene today. They had originally set out to polish true metal with a good dash of self-mockery, but already managed to hit the German top 10 with their second record “Emblas Saga” and make crowded clubs sweat.
The basics for this are derived somewhere between Sabaton, Manwar, and After Forever, with an attitude that doesn’t stand above using all of the kitsch and cliché available. Ylva and her guys mainly sing about Nordic mythology, happily awaiting the chance to treat you to songs like “Powersnake” or their album’s title track “Emblas Saga” – an experience developing both tenderly, but forceful inside of your eardrums. Let the North wind blow into your face and lift those mead horns to the sky when you hear the call of war! Skål!
