Album Review

After proving their mettle with a pair of impressive, independently released EPs, Germany's Wolfchant pledged their pagan metal services to the Massacre label before releasing their official debut album, 2005's evocatively named Bloody Tales of Disgraced Lands. This immediately consolidated their standing within this especially popular heavy metal subgenre thanks to a consistent set of songs, combining a typically Teutonic flair for mellifluous guitar melodies with harsh, atonal vocals usually favored by the Scandinavian bands of this ilk. Together, these disparate elements forged an unlikely truce that made it possible for infectious but still appealingly evil highlights like "Clan of the Cross," "Mourning Red," and "Clankiller" to attract power metal and extreme metal fans alike. Add to this a raft of wicked pagan/occult/battle lyric images that metal fans of any stripe can appreciate (hey, that's a sword emerging from a stream on the album's cover, or didn't you notice?), plus the fact that Wolfchant's ever twisting folk-metal melodies are generally offset with enough staccato and counterpoint riffing to spare listeners from visions of elves line-dancing (except on "Of Honor and Pride" and "Praise to All"), and it's no wonder Bloody Tales of Disgraced Lands enjoyed some "crossover" success.

Customer Reviews

Wolfchant is on Itunes!

Like the other reviewer I also heard this band on "Eternity Metal Podcast" . This band got me into viking metal. The vocals range from growls to screams that sound like they are whispered (very cool!) to clean singing. May favorate songs are: 1.Praise To All- The first song I heard I like the synthesized folk instruments 2.Clan of Cross- Starts with a slow keyboard intro that leads into a cool black metal influenced song. 3.Blood for Blood- A very medieval sounding guitar intro that turns into a very epic song 4.Clankiller- The longest and most epic song on the album. 5.I am War- Sounds like Children of Bodom with viking lyrics IMO I like all of the other songs but those are my favorates recommended for fans of Children of Bodom, Ensiferum, Amon Amarth, and Einherjer.

Too Bad :(

The only thing that stopped me from buying this album was the poor production quality. Everything sounds muffled.

bloody amazing

i first heard this band on the eternity metal podcast and was amazed by them, if you like turisas and amon amarth then this is the bad for you.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active:

Though they often pillage Scandinavian legends for the inspiration behind their pagan folk metal, the band known as Wolfchant actually hails from St. Oswald, Germany, where vocalist (and also sometime bassist and guitarist) Lokhi, guitarists Skaahl and Gaahnt, and drummer Norgahd (who also contributed occasional vocals, keyboards, and accordion) first joined forces in 2003. The following year marked the release of two demos ( "The Fangs of the Southern Death" and "The Herjan Trilogy" ) that helped...
