Lazy Equation: Death Metal + Folk + Costumes + Beard
Thrash Hits verdict: Fully committed to bringing us metal from the middle ages, Brummie Death/Folksters, Hærken don’t just dress like they’ve escaped from the Renaissance Fair, they bring alive Chaucer’s word in their interviews too. But far from being a one-note joke band, they back up their antics with some of the most solid and catchy riffing British Death Metal has to offer. So, brave pilgrim, will’st though take up thy sword and do battle with these heathens from the Mid Lands?
