Hærken - "King Herla"
Dare I say 'infectious'? That is some quality songsmithing in the true bardic tradition right there, if said bards were in the habit of cornering people in dark alleys and bludgeoning them to death with their lutes. As far as I know, they've only got some demo tracks recorded at the moment, but I will be hovering over that metal feast like an angry vulture waiting to dive in and peck out any juicy eyeballs or innards that may surface. Until then, you'll have to content yourself with whatever scraps I can carve off the internet's carcass.
Hærken - "Torquilstone"
Any band that can draw inspiration from Sir Walter Scott's 'Ivanhoe' for a kick-ass metal song is all right in my books. Man, that works on so many levels. 'Books', get it? Because, Ivanhoe? You can get metal in many different places on the internet, but only here can you get this kind of quality comedy. Enjoy...nay, revel...nay, BATHE in it, for it shall enrich you and make your hair sleek and shiny.
