I was going to post in the existing thread, but it turned out no one made one.
I doubt many who aren't folk metal fans will care much, but Askival is back from the dead.
After a three year hiatus I've decided the time is right to return to this project and start recording a second album. I wasn't entirely sure if I'd ever continue this project as I lost all inspiration to continue it a few years back but I think in the back of my mind I always intended to return to it one day. The ideas are flowing and the demos are currently being recorded. I will hopefully have some news on the new album soon. Thanks for the support!
For those not in the know, the band released their only album 'Eternity' in 2009, and were held in quite high regard by those into their folk metal, and I in particular am a huge fan of it. However to most people's disappointment the band was ended not long after. I guess the sound can be described as sort of atmospheric folk metal.
