May we shine some light on a dear friend to us, who have given us the honour, to appear on our debut album as a guest, gracing us with his talent, and also having joined us on stage - Daniel Fredriksson!

Daniel, whom you may know from excellent folk metal band Otyg, is a very prominent folk musician in Sweden. Otyg has also always been a great inspiration for me, one of the first real folk metal bands I ever heard, and in my opinion both them and Daniel have played an important part in giving folk metal an identity to be reconed with!

When he was visiting the other day we jammed and fooled around, and this got caugh on camera by Jonas. Please excuse our sloppy playing since we were just having fun. The tune is the old swedish ballad Herr Olof.

What's you first experience with folk metal? Drop some bands/titles in the comments, give us some new things to check out!
