                YEA!!!  My first Folk Metal Review!  I have an appreciation for this genre even though I can’t say I would be called a disciple of it.  I have always thought the mixture of flutes, accordions and violins in metal music was a unique take on metal even though by all common thinking you would believe it would be totally absurd.  While some listeners I am sure think it is absurd I find the genre enjoyable for the most part as I like bands like Korpiklaani and BattleLore along with traditional folk bands.

So we come to Vallorch with their album ‘Neverfade’ blasting their way to me from Venezia, Italy.  Vallorch host all manner of folk instruments from bagpipes, violins, accordions and flutes along with three vocalists to offer a wide spectrum of emotions.  So right off the bat we have all the makings of what a Folk Metal Band should be…but do we have the songs?   Well my friends string up your mandolin and get ready to puff on your flute, if you don’t have a flute grab a friends flute and puff on his…oh wait…ANYWAY!

A non-Metal Music Review: Happy Ol’McWeasel

CD: No Offence

Available: NOW

                I was recently contacted by Caravan Music Promotions asking me if I would be interested in reviewing a couple of artists for them.  One was, well I’m not sure what it was but it was definitely not for me.  The other was a Celtic punk band from Slovenia who are supposed to be similar to the Dropkick Murphys  and Flogging Molly, while also having a old world music charm and feel to their music.

So even though not metal, I told Caravan I would look into the Happy Ol’McWeasel…which for a first time…is not a nickname I have given my dick.  So did ‘No Offence’ make my Little McWeasel happy?  It sure did! Continue reading A non-Metal Music Review: Happy Ol’McWeasel CD: No Offence
