Amazing music!

  Ok, I didn't like all the songs on this album at first. However, even at first, I was entranced by a must of them. What a band! 

Hedningarna brings together ancient and modern in a way few bands do. The music is raw, ecstatic, and primal, drawing heavily from Finnish and Lappish traditions. The beat lulls you into a trance and soon all you can do is LISTEN. 

There are few other bands out there that are even in the same league (Gjallarhorn is, and Varttina might be). My favorite song oddly is the first one: Täss'on Nainen which is a slowly crescendoing chant. Other songs however bring in deep fiddling traditions from the area, and they sing in a variety of languages. 

Highly, highly recommended.
