SUIDAKRA – this band stands for folk metal like no other German band. Through the years they gained a huge and loyal fanbase and put themselves on top of the scene. SUIDAKRA don’t go with the flow, that’s for sure. 10 albums in 13 years of band history – years before there were indications for something like a pagan hype, this band already set the standards. The unique combination of fast melodic death metal and celtic folk elements was inspiration for masses of young bands. With their new album “Eternal Defiance”, which the band just completed, they clearly reach a new level in their own history. Combining orchestral parts, folk elements and their thrilling way of writing really heavy songs, this album marks their masterpiece to date! Dark, epic melodies and brilliant songwriting is refined with transparent sound, recorded in the Gernhart Studios by Martin Buchwalter (Destruction, Rage and many more). If you are searching for comparable bands maybe Eluveitie & Wintersun come close to what SUIDAKRA stands for nowadays.
