Episode 230 – Winter

27. November, 2011
MetalCast Episode 230

Days are shorter, temperatures decrease, it’s getting winter soon (still a few weeks away, though). The classical composer Vivaldi wrote symphonies about the four seasons, but the seasons also inspired and continue to inspire many Metal bands, be them Black Metal, Folk Metal, Power Metal, Doom Metal, and so on.The link with Pagan Metal (which refers to the lyrics, of course) is very easily made, hence the presence of Pagan Reign (defunct since some time), Draugr and Heathen Foray. They are joined by the Swedes of Sabaton, Draconian, the international formation that is Dragonforce, Luca Turilli (yes, again), and more (incl. Jon Oliva’s Pain). All have written songs where winter plays a role, be that as a theme or events that took place in this particular season. So make yourself comfortable and may this episode warm you so hell does not freeze over.
