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.

Very cool band with possibly the coolest band logo ever. I like them quite a bit; never bothered to actually look into Eternity though. Should probably do that eventually.

I have a feeling the album mentioned in the first post isn't happening.
I think instead it's going to be the new project I mentioned in the BM thread

Listening to these clips, both of Askival and Àrshaidh. I'm rather impressed.

EDIT: I do prefer those Askival tracks, however.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

Been listening to these guys the past little while, I enjoy their sound immensely. Askival I mean.

I think if they all dressed up in leaves and armour, then had a bunch of leaves and trees on stage with a fog machine + giant fan combo, it'd be a great live show. I'd probably cry.
You've taken all my precious gifts
I gave unto you life from by breath
But you a product of my love
Your gratitude shown in my death
