Varang Nord played their special brand of pagan metal recently at the Kilkim Žaibu Festival XXI in Varniai, Lūksto Ežeras, Lithuania. The event took place on August 6th and feature many bands over that weekend. Fortunately, the whole festival was documented by some excellent photographers and we’re able to bring you a gallery focused on the Varang Nord performance.

Varang Nord – Pārķiuņa Uomurs
Pārķiuņa Uomurs (Thunder’s Hammer) is the fourth studio album from Latvian group Varang Nord. As with previous albums, it still combines harsh death metal riffs with epic accordion chants, creating a unique blend of northern pagan/folk metal, but for the first time in band’s history, all the lyrics are written in the Latgalian language (an eastern dialect of Latvian). The album is proudly dedicated to Varang Nord’s homeland, the power and beauty of it’s nature and the depth of it’s cultural roots. Read more …here
