Review – Heidevolk: Uit Oude Grond

Posted by

At first, Dutch Folk and Viking Metal band Heidevolk‘s third full-length album Uit Oude Grond may not really appeal to you. The album seems to not be much more than some generic music from the two styles this band is categorized as, offering little to nothing really new to the scene. While this assumption is basically correct, the material on Uit Oude Grond is still very well constructed and played, coming off more as a Hard Rock outfit with some Metal inspirations here and there. Thanks to those facts, and the way the vocals are performed on this release as well, Uit Oude Grond is an album that needs time to grow on you, and when it does, it’s actually a rather pleasing experience.
