Biography
Skyforger has been forging their music in the smithy of the Thundergod since 1995.

For the last two decades, the band has been fighting under the flag of Latvian Pagan Metal, an extreme blend of traditional Baltic Folk music and various Metal influences ranging from Norwegian inspired Black Metal through to 80s-rooted Heavy Metal. The band’s unique combination of ancient and modern influence has given them a wide appeal throughout both the Metal and Folk scenes, and has brought great variety to their song writing over the course of the seven Skyforger albums.

The first of these was unleashed from the forge in 1997. Titled ‘Semigalls’ Warchant’, the demo tape told tales of the last free Pagan tribes of the Baltic peoples; and their struggles with Christian invaders throughout the thirteenth century.

These tales of ancient tribal Latvia and its Heathen tradition were to be expanded upon in 1998 with Skyforger’s first full-length album, ‘Kauja pie Saules’ (‘The Battle of Saule’). Later, in 2000, band followed with their third release, the First World War themed album ‘Latvian Riflemen’.

Skyforger signed to the German label Folter Records and soon the world saw the release of their newest Pagan Metal masterpiece, – ‘Thunderforge’, which was a fine return to their old themes of ancestral culture and Heathen gods. The next album in line, recorded also in 2003, was the self-released ‘Sword Song’, – an album of purely acoustic Latvian Folk music and a long coming tribute to their ancient forefathers’ heritage. In 2005 Folter Records released re-mastered demo album ‘Semigalls’ Warchant’ on CD format, with additional EP ‘Asinslauks’.

Skyforger spent next few years working on a conceptual album about the legendary Latvian fairytale hero, Kurbads. The album, similarly entitled ‘Kurbads’, was released worldwide via Metal Blade Records in 2010.

Through the years, band has also been busy on festival stages all over Europe and Skyforger is well known for their non-compromising live performances.

Skyforger released their new album ‘Senprūsija’ (Old Prussia) on 6th of April, 2015, on Thunderforge Records.

Biography
Gwydion’s journey started in 1995, a project founded by a group of friends that shared the same passion for metal and interest in Celtic culture. During these first stages of the band, three demos were presented to the Portuguese metal scene and dozens of gigs were performed throughout Portugal.

In 2007, Gwydion prepared to record their first full-length album “Ynys Mön”. Their originality and effort triggered the interest of the German label TROLLZORN, which offered a contract to release the album. With Ynys Mön, Gwydion finally started to draw some international attention and ultimately received an invitation to make an European tour in October 2008 with top bands TYR, HOLLENTHON, ALESTORM, and SVARTSOT: the RAGNAROK AASKEREIA’S TOUR.

During 2009, Gwydion played in nearly all major metal Portuguese metal festivals, delivering a distinct sound and attitude, and received continuously great feedback. At the end of the year, Gwydion finished the recordings and production of their second album “Horn Triskelion”. “Horn Triskelion” truly represented fifteen years of accumulated experience and ideas. The readers of Portugal’s biggest metal magazine LOUD magazine have chosen GWYDION to be the 2nd best band over 2010 + their album “Horn Triskelion” was considered the 3rd best album of 2010!

Now, in 2013, Gwydion presents “VETERAN”. Fans will experience a slightly different musical-style, as the music is much more epic and “metal” than folk compared to the previous release. Since the beginning of the band, they had a very influential epic component in their songs, so naturally when they created “VETERAN”, they decided to have a strong mixture of heavy metal riffs and epic/folk songs. “VETERAN” is a story of a warrior since his birth through his training, conquests and defeats with relevance to the History of Portugal.
