. Band of the day 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 . Skyclad 💀 . Skyclad are a British heavy metal band with heavy folk influences in their music. Formed in 1990. They are considered one of the pioneers of folk metal. The etymology behind the term "skyclad" comes from a pagan/wiccan term for ritual nudity, in which rituals are performed with the participants metaphorically clad only by the sky, as a sign of equality. The name alludes both to the band's religious leanings and to their social beliefs, as set out in the song "Skyclad" on their first album. With their first studio album "The Wayward Sons of Mother Earth" (1991) tha band continued to record almost every year in the 90s. After a tour with Overkill in 1991, they added Fritha Jenkins on violin and keyboard and a second guitarist in the shape of Baxter's friend Dave Pugh, allowing for a more folk-based sound on their follow-up release A Burnt Offering for the Bone Idol in 1992. The group's early output was followed by Jonah's Ark in 1993. In 1994 the band released Prince of the Poverty Line. Foundin member Walkyier left the band in 2001, for many fans, Walkyier's lyrics and delivery style were one of the band's central attractions, and there were fears that his departure spelled the end of the band. 2004's "A Semblance of Normality" marked the band's first new material post-Walkyier. Its style was very much in the vein of previous releases, with Ridley's lyrics making an obvious effort to follow similar themes and styles to Walkyier's whilst retaining an individual identity. Skyclad's 13th studio album "Forward Into The Past" was released in 2017. . #bandoftheday #skyclad #heavymetalandrock #folkmetal #metal #heavymetal #metalcore #metalhead #metalgirl #headbanger #thrash #thrasher #blackmetal #groovemetal #progressivemetal #speedmetal #death #deathmetal #symphonicmetal #industrialmetal #extrememetal #doommetal #deathcore #thrashmetal #powermetal #glammetal #gothicmetal #vikingmetal #grindcore #djent

. Band of the day 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 . All That Remains 💀 . All That Remains is an American heavy metal band from Springfield, Massachusetts, formed in 1998. All That Remains has been described as metalcore, melodic death metal, and heavy metal. All That Remains' music mixes "crushing" riffs, dual guitar harmonies, double bass drum patterns, and breakdowns that are prevalent in the metalcore genre. Vocally, the band combines singing, screaming, and growls. Phil Labonte's lyrics focus on themes such as relationships, personal struggles, society, and hope. In an interview with Mike Martin stated about their musical style: “We've always wanted to have a lot of different kind of metal songs whether it was a ballad, fast song, or death metal song. We've always been capable of doing every kind of song. We've always just done it no matter what the repercussions were because you know you are always going to get backlash. If you are going to write a record that is really heavy, and on the next record you have a ballad, people are going to get pissed. We never really look too much into it, we just wanted to do it, and so we pretty much did it." Oli Herbert 🙏 has stated his biggest influence on guitar is Andy LaRocque of King Diamond. Also, he's mentioned he draws a lot of influence from George Lynch, John Sykes, and Randy Rhoads. All That Remains confirmed the death of their guitarist and founding member Oli Herbert early Oct. 17. The musician's personal publicist has now released a statement revealing further details, including that he died "unexpectedly as a result of an accident which occurred on the property of his home." 😭 . Herbert had played in All That Remains since 1998, performing on all nine of the band's studio albums. He and vocalist Phil Labonte were the group's remaining original members. Herbert was known for his contributions to metal and beyond for his aggressive-yet-refined style of playing. . #bandoftheday #allthatremains #heavymetalandrock #metal #heavymetal #metalcore #metalhead #metalgirl #headbanger #headbang #thrash #thrasher #blackmetal #groovemetal #progressivemetal #speedmetal #death #deathmetal #symphonicmetal #industrialmetal #extrememetal

. Band of the day 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 . Moonsorrow 💀 . Moonsorrow is a Finnish pagan metal band formed in Helsinki in 1995. Musically, the band incorporates elements of black metaland folk metal in their sound. The band call their sound "epic heathen metal" and try to distance themselves from the term "Viking metal". They have distanced themselves from other folk metal bands, emphasising that their music is pagan and spiritual and is challenging for its listeners, rather than happy or danceable. The band members have varying levels of pagan belief but they draw on pagan spirituality for lyrics and inspiration. Moonsorrow's lyrics draw inspiration from Finnish mythology, legends and poetry. In the beginning the lyrics were written in English, but since 1999 they have been written exclusively in Finnish. Moonsorrow traced a path similar to that blazed by their countrymen Amorphis by combining death and black metal with heavy doses of atmosphere and Finnish folk traditions; but theirs was arguably an even more ambitious and epic approach. Voimasta Ja Kunniasta ("Of Strength and Honour"). Their best effort yet, the album solidified the group's standing as top purveyors of Scandinavian fantasy metal and set the stage for another highly regarded opus in the shape of 2003's acclaimed "Kivenkantaja" ("Stonebearer"), as well as reissue of their "Suden Üni" debut. "Verisäkeet", the band's fourth studio long player, arrived in 2005, followed by the critically acclaimed "Viides luku – Hävitetty" in 2007. 2011 saw the release of "Varjoina kuljemme kuolleiden maassa", and in 2016 the band dropped their seventh full-length outing, "Jumalten aika". . #bandoftheday #moonsorrow #heavymetalandrock #folkmetal #metal #heavymetal #metalcore #metalhead #metalgirl #headbanger #thrash #thrasher #blackmetal #groovemetal #progressivemetal #speedmetal #death #deathmetal #symphonicmetal #industrialmetal #extrememetal #doommetal #deathcore #thrashmetal #powermetal #glammetal #gothicmetal #vikingmetal #grindcore #djent

. Band of the day 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 . Turisas 💀 . Turisas is a Finnish metal band from Hämeenlinna. They were founded in 1997 Named for a warrior god in Finnish mythology, Turisas are a heavy metal band whose music is an ambitious blend of symphonic metal, power metal, progressive rock, and Finnish folk music.  Turisas are a folk metal band, incorporating elements of power metal and symphonic metal along with frequent harsh vocals. Turisas is known to play most of their solos on electric violin, as opposed to traditional guitar solos. The band were eager to perform their songs that blended pagan folklore with bloody tales of warfare, but the epic-scale sound they sought proved difficult to capture on tape, and Turisas' first attempt at recording an album, 1998's Taiston Tie (aka "The Battle Path"), never saw release due to the group's dissatisfaction with the results. Turisas' first proper album, Battle Metal, was released in 2004, with the band supporting the album with appearances at a number of major European metal festivals. 2007's The Varangian Way, four musicians who had helped fill out the group's sound during live concerts, appeared on the disc as full-fledged bandmembers for the first time. November 2010 Stand Up and Fight, was released. Followed by the Turisas2013 in 2013. . #bandoftheday #turisas #heavymetalandrock #folkmetal #metal #heavymetal #metalcore #metalhead #metalgirl #headbanger #thrash #thrasher #blackmetal #groovemetal #progressivemetal #speedmetal #death #deathmetal #symphonicmetal #industrialmetal #extrememetal #doommetal #deathcore #thrashmetal #powermetal #glammetal #gothicmetal #vikingmetal #grindcore #djent
