Lumsk  


Folk metal is still a relatively new and seldom explored territory, with a few bands dabbling in the concept usually by throwing in a violin interlude here and there. Given the spectrum of bands labelled as folk metal, Lumsk lie on the folkier end, perhaps not as far as Cruachan but still a band whose rich folk heritage is equally as important as their metallic stylings. The individual songs on Åsmund Fregdegjævar are quite diverse, ranging from quiet interludes ("Hår Som Spunnid Guld") to slow, doomy, crunchfests ("Fagran Fljotan Folen", "Ormin Lange") and, of course, more upbeat folkier numbers, though the predominant vibe is somewhat darker than what many expect from a folk band. The violins play a major role here, more so than other folk bands, and the female vocals are perfect. Even at their heaviest, this is not crushing headbanging music, but this is a fine and original take on folk-infused metal.
