Folkodia - Battle of the Milvian Bridge

International folk metal band Folkodia features members from 7 different countries, and their seventh full length ‘Battle of the Milvian Bridge’ is another rampant slab of anthemic Viking/folk metal. It is out now through Stygian Crypt Productions.

The opening title track is a massive galloping beast of a track, threading epic melodies throughout the heavy metal thunder. Taking cues from the likes of melodeath giants Amon Amarth and the catchy folkisms of the likes of Ensiferum or Metsatoll, Folkodia have perfected their sword and battle songs and each comes out with masterful aplomb. ‘The Maiden of Lorraine’ is full of epic hooks, while the raging ‘Battle of Salamis’ couples the intense blasting with plaintive violin work. All throughout ‘Battle of the Milvian Bridge’, Folkodia conjure the feel of ancient battles, tales of bravery and savagery drawing you in at each point.

Whether you’re singing along to the super catchy ‘Hussar Angels’, or banging your head at the thrashy gallop of ‘Sigillum Militium Xpisti’, Folkodia present something for everyone. ‘Battle of the Milvian Bridge’ will scratch your folk metal itch perfectly, while not being too predictable or stale. Top stuff!
