Gods Tower - The Turns



As many fans of Bathory and the like (the whole folky pagan metal scene) I'm surprised that this band generates pretty much no discussion. I do know however that there are a few regulars on here that love them, myself being one. I suggest all their material (new album out by the way for you long time fans) but especially The Turns. They are a folk metal band from Belarus that spawned in the early nineties. I know a lot of threads get made on subpar bands and they sink very quickly but this band is a classic that I will forever ever regard amongst the ranks of bands like Bathory and Scald. Truly amazing band and if you're not familiar you are truly missing out. Enjoy.

This is music that truly touches me like only a select few albums do (Hvis Lyset Tar Oss, Stormcrowfleet, Imaginations from the Other Side, etc.). So much passion, atmosphere, everything is perfect!

Sounds good. Im always on the look out for good "folky pagan" bands. Its always exciting to find good bands in the genre, due to the abundance of mediocre ones.

Im just on the first YT link now, but I think I will download the full thing in a bit.

Sure bud, even took the liberty of uploading it for ya. I forgot about compressing it so unfortunately it's divided up into a bunch of separate .mp3s but oh well... Not a good first experience; Mediafire turned out to be a huge pain in the ass (not really but it was slow hence the delayed response). Anyways, enjoy!

*removed link*

Oh, and tell me if everything works out fine. Again, first experience with Mediafire.

EDIT: I'm working on a normal version so just hold on haha.

DOUBLEDIT: Got it! That wasn't so bad. Here ya go:

It's like Fenriz and J. Read

"I'm so happy to love metal and stuff"

"I AM metal"
