Partout, Québec-based thrashy folk metal band Nordheim self-released their album Lost In The North in 2010. A year later Maple Metal Records signed the group and re-released the full length. By genre association alone, thrashy folk metal perfectly describes their sound – they’ve essentially written fast metal music overlayed with keyboard’s emulating folk instruments. Overtop all of this are growls and the occasional shouted group vocals. Long story short, Nordheim have compiled a key album that could possibly help push for a broader Canadian folk metal scene.
