GWYDION from Portugal plays epic Viking Black Metal.The band exist since 1995, after a lot of demos and selfinaced albums the first longplayer will be now released through TrollZorn & SMP at the 08.02.2008.
About and from the band: ”Ynys Mön is our first full-debut album and the main sources of inspiration are Viking and Folk metal, reflecting the feeling and the sounds which we most identify ourselves.” ”Our first album, Ynys Mön, brings not only a significantimprovement in terms of quality, when compared with our previous works, but represents also a turning point in the style and influences for the band. If our sonority could be previously regarded as melodic black metal, at the present time it is much more heavily inspired by Viking and Folk Metal ways. This change is also visible on the lyrics, which sums to the already usual celtic mystic and culture, the Nordic, containing also references to thematics like religion and paganism.”
