Edmonton, Alberta-based metallers Forsaken Rite released their eleven-track The Northern Saga full-length on June 2nd, 2017, and with it helped to further stake the claim that Canada does produce solid folk metal. While you can both stream and purchase a copy of the full album at Bandcamp here, iTunes and Spotify, we’ve just partnered with the group to offer a free download of the single “The Hero’s Path”.

Commenting on the song, lead singer Archon said: “‘The Hero’s Path’ is the tale of a young man who loses everything early in his life, inspiring him to take up arms and devote himself to a lifetime of valour, honour, conquest and glory. It speaks to the listener, ensuring that no matter what hardship a warrior may face in their life, they will always find victory in picking themselves up, pressing forward, and charging valiantly against the tides of hardship, challenge and villainy.”
