We’re stoked to have partnered with folk metal mavericks Krampus to follow up the release of their groundbreaking and controversial new track “Paralysis” with yet another free song, “Butterflies on Fire”. This is the second track the band recorded and produced with Tommy Vetterli (Eluveitie, Coroner) in August 2013, and again features Eluveitie’s Merlin Sutter on drums. The track shows yet another facet of the band’s unique approach to mixing modern metal with traditional folk instrumentation. “Butterflies on Fire” is available both as a free stream and a free download.

Krampus released a new track back in September. The song, along with almost a full album’s worth of material, was written mere months after the release of the band’s first full-length album in 2012. Produced by Tommy Vetterli (Eluveitie, Coroner), “Paralysis” breaks with the band’s musical past as well as genre conventions, while taking the combination of authentic folk instrumentation with modern metal a bold step further.
