Heavy Metal Month II – Day 28 – Getting Weird

Fejd (2013)

Heavy Metal Month II, Day 28) Getting weird: song with an instrument uncommon to metal

While this might be pushing the envelope on being “metal”, I’ve become a pretty big fan of the Swedish band Fejd in the last few years, starting with their 2013 album, Nagelfar. Eschewing traditional metal instruments for classic folk instruments such as the bouzouki, moraharpa, and hurdy-gurdy, Fejd may lean closer to straight folk versus folk metal. Their most recent album, Trolldom has a more metal feel to it, but I still enjoy their older work.

Den Skimrande (from the aforementioned Nagelfar album) was the first track of theirs I heard, and hopefully you enjoy it as well.
