Wolfhorde is releasing a tribute EP with three cover songs from the best known pioneers of Finnish metal music: Finntroll, Moonsorrow and Amorphis. These bands have been big inspiration to Wolfhorde and also to many others.

From the core, Wolfhorde is a Folk Metal band, but after all categories don’t really mean that much. With this release we want to show where our biggest musical inspiration comes from and how long and diverse is the history of Finnish Folk Metal, which leads back to early 90’s death metal of Amorphis, to Epic Heathen Metal of Moonsorrow and finally to humppa-infused black metal of Finntroll.

All these bands are bound together, but everyone with their very different styles of music. Even the language of every song is another. We thought that a compilation of these unique songs should definately make an interesting time travel to roots of this genre of music in Finland.

”I think we should remember to sometimes forget about categorization of music and just enjoy the different range of varieties. With the release of this tribute EP titled The Great Old Ones, Wolfhorde wants to show the range of different elements within the genre. Just sit back and enjoy good music.”, says Werihukka – the composer and guitar player of Wolfhorde.

In the meanwhile, Wolfhorde will concentrate energy to creating a new full-length album.
