Many people were shocked to hear about the tragic death of Bathroy frontman and creator, Quorthon, but as much influential he might be to the Metal scene, another great musician passed away at the end of this year, I'm talking about Windir's vocalist, founder and main composer, Terje Bakken a.k.a. Valfar.

Valfar left behind him a great legacy called Windir, a Black Metal band that I suppose most of you are aware of. Personally I don't like to define Windir as a Black Metal band, but as a Viking Metal band, because the Folk Influences are very present. The music, and the Nordic themes are also there.

There seems to be an endless supply of folk metal bands. Windir is just one of them. Although this sounds like everything else in its genre, likferd is an excellent album.

I disagree with the above poster. This is definitely a way above average album in the genre. Totally awesome album.

Windir is a melodic black metal band, not a folk metal band even if there are parts of traditionnal instruments such as accordion. This album doesn't sound like an Eluveitie or an Ensiferum album, not at all! It is not closed neither to Finntroll which can be considered as black folk.

Likferd happens to be my favorite Windir album, especially with the mighty and beautiful Fagning!
