Well, I just got the new Waylander album; Honour Amongst Chaos. So, I went searching for their thread to discuss it, and found out they don't have one.

Waylander are one of the best folk metal bands in existence, so I had to make a thread. They're, hopefully, well-known enough to warrant a place outside of the Folk Metal Thread.

For those who don't know, they're a Northern Irish folk metal band, along the lines of Eluveitie, but they were there first and they're more agressive.

The new album is probably my favourite album of the year so far, after only one listen.

I always wanted to like this band, but somehow their music just didn't hit me

though I listened to one new track and it sounded good
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

You should give it another chance, there's a lot of good songs on the new album.

Have you heard As the Deities Clash?

Yeah I'm listening to As The Deities Clash as we speak and I really like the part with the acoustics and folky atmosphere with the clean vocals

I probably should check the new album out


EDIT: scratch that, I ended up listening to all songs on their myspace, I can't believe I havn't understood their greatness until now

must get something by them

I got one of their albums a few days ago (your rec ) and they seem good. I'll try and get their latest soon.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

I'm glad you liked it.

And that some people here actually listen to my recommendations.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Waylander are great! I always loved Folk and Symphonic metal, it's just much more interesting than regular metal imo


EDIT: the opening page of their site "you'll be happier than a pig in **** listening to this!" and they quoted UG!

This I have to agree with. Folk metal binges FTW.

I'm absolutely loving Honor Amongst Chaos. One of the best Celtic folk albums I've heard. Definitely one of the best releases of the year.

Honour Amongst Chaos is just great!

Christ I was just listening to Anu's Retributipn and the singing in it is horrendous! I'm not a fan of Waylander that much but I think 'Reawakening pride once lost' is a solid album. Nice and raw and Irish! It's what Irish metal should be but they went into some dodgy fancy folk metal after that which is a shame.
