The original post

Since I've just finished submitting pictures of their albums, I might as well start a thread about this great folk metal band, Skyclad!

Those pioneers of Folk Metal are currently working on a new album, which was supposed to be released in fall 2006 (that's what was initially planned even though nothing's sure now that Black Lotus Records (their label) has run out of business).

So, what do you think about them? I personally respect them a lot as fathers of Folk Metal, and I simply worship some of their albums (haven't listened to their whole discography yet). For example Oui Avantgarde A Chance is one of their finest works IMO, a folk metal masterpiece Other great albums are (IMO) A Semblance Of Normality, Folkemon or Vintage Whine.

Another important aspect of their music (apart from the folk instruments and atmosphere) is their lyrics: they deal with a wide variety of real-world themes (as well as more personal issues) including poverty, drugs, environmentalism, politics, urban decay, paganism, society and commercialism. Really thoughtful lyrics, with puns and wordplays... It's definitely worth paying attention to them

So, what do you guys (and gals ) think about them??

A friend of mine took me to one of their concerts a few years ago. I've never heard of them, but their energy during the show was so contagious, that I immediately liked these guys. Amazing band, their cd's aren't easy to find here, but I have found a couple of them, great stuff.

I wish these guys would re-release their older albums, they are almost impossible to find nowdays.

Problem is, their old stuff was edited by Noise. They went down, the rights on their stuff was bought by Sanctuary... who went bankrupt too. So now I don't know who holds them...

As some of you know, Skyclad played live at Hellfest last week-end . The full show streams here for 6 months.
Enjoy!
And know that the special guest will be there for their Bloodstock show

no, and that's really unlikely to happen anytime soon (I'll post an interview in a few months)
the special guest is Dave Pugh, guitar player from 1992 to 1995
