H. Valkyrie – member of well known FOLKEARTH, decided to create own project (back in 2003) in aim to do something different of usual metal scene, and as result we have new good stuff into Viking style. Here isn’t standard Viking metal, because here aren’t tons of guitar riffs and chaotic drumming, he-he, but here are just folkloric melodies with ambient touches. Of course here are guitar parts (both acoustic and electro), but here they aren’t playing main role in the music. Music is based on mid tempos, with female vocals (H. Valkyrie) and good ancient atmosphere. I’d like to admit here aren’t any right original things, I can’t remember some names right now, but I’ve heard bands with plays in such style exactly. Nevertheless HV is really interesting, professional and memorable in it’s sense, and this is the main thing that here’s good stuff, isn’t it? As for atmosphere, so here’s good one, it’s really filled with all necessary moods to imagine those ancient times here was sung about. The only bad thing is HV don’t have real drummer, yes, here’s drum-machine just… Maybe it’s question of time just… Such kind of music is popular and I think HV have lots of fans already. And if you are into not brutal Viking metal and ambient – HV is for you! All in all here are intro, 6 long compositions, outro and two good covers of FALKENBACH with BATHORY.
