”Svartby is a folk black metal band from Saint-Petersburg, Russia founded in 2004. The band plays vivid brutal folk metal with black metal, death metal and modern metal elements. The closest similarities can be made with Scandinavian folk metal bands like Trollfest, Finntroll and Korpiklaani, though the music is more symphonic and so can be also compared to a fantasy movie soundtrack. The band sings about wild magical creatures living in Svartby (the Black Village) - witches, dwarfs, tree spirits - definitely unkind to human folk, but at the same time merry, nature-loving and nice living beings with a good sense of humor. The lyrics are in Swedish. The debuting full-length album, "Kom I Min Kittel" (Come IntoMy Cauldron) is devoted to the witch tribe of the Black Village - with all their artifacts like brooms, toads, cats, cauldrons, child-eating and, of course, sorcery. Merry mean forest hags”
