Arkona is a Russian band, who play Pagan Folk Metal. So there are some Black Metal undercurrents in it, but the folk side is mostly present, thats why I placed it in the Melodic Metal Forum.

The bands vocalist Masha "Scream" sings in her native language, she also proves to have a good grunt. Masha is pretty much the face of the band, giving Arkona their sound. The rest of the music is based around traditional melodies and instruments with the combination of the usual Metal instruments.

Alright, enough introduction stuff. Time to check out their music. Arkona released a great DVD this year, and has put it on their site for download, free of charge, which is really cool obviously. Check it out right here, its really quite good:

650 MB version, great quality
290 MB version, still very good quality

The links are taken from their official site, right from here. Hesitant to download? Look at this promotional video from youtube.

For a review of their debut album, click here

So well, what do you all think about this band? I kind of fell in love with them

Why do all great bands hail from Europe??? I'm dying to see Equilibrium and Arkona live, but they NEVER come in America! Unless they get commercial enough, they don't stand a chance to cross over to Canada...

Yeah, I guess metal is mostly a northern hemisphere affair, isn't it? South America (except Brazil), Africa and Asia (except Japan), are left aside by most bands, mostly because they don't have a strong fan base enough to perform there, I guess. That sucks, since metal is meant to be an international movement, not an exclusive northwestern genre.
