Throughout Kampfar’s 15-year legacy they have been little more to me, than a name. A name I heard more often than not on the business end of praises from those who’s taste I trust, but sill just a name… Until that is, this weekend; in which I downloaded, listened to and completely enjoyed the later three or so album of their body of work. The track above is ‘Dødens Vee’ from Kampfar’s latest ‘Hemigang’.

This weekend I also spun the hell out the new Imperium Dekadenz album, Procella Vadens that I briefly reviewed. Procella Vadens has easily became my favorite release of 2010 thusfar.

On the less metal side of things I discovered a little folk gem, Kauan that despite being rather hit or miss has a few really solid records worth a peek. Notably ‘Aava Tuulen Maa’ and ‘Lumikuuro’. Check out a few videos of my discoveries after the jump. 

Kauan- Koivun Elama

Imperium Dekadenz- Lacrimae Mundi
