About Skyforger

SKYFORGER is an extraordinary Folk / Pagan Metal band from Riga, Latvia, and have been forging their music in the smithy of the Latvian Thundergod Pērkons since 1995.

For more than a quarter-century, the band has been forging their music under the flag of Latvian Pagan Metal, an extreme blend of traditional Baltic Folk music and various Metal influences ranging from Norwegian inspired Black Metal through to 80s-rooted Heavy Metal. The band's unique combination of ancient and modern influence has given them a wide appeal throughout both the Metal and Folk scenes, and has brought great variety to their song writing over the course of the seven SKYFORGER albums.

The first of these was unleashed from the forge in 1997. Titled 'Semigalls' Warchant', the demo tape told tales of the last free Pagan tribes of the Baltic peoples; and their struggles with Christian invaders throughout the thirteenth century. These tales of ancient tribal Latvia and its Heathen tradition were to be expanded upon in 1998 with SKYFORGER's first full-length album, 'Kauja pie Saules' ('The Battle of Saule'). Later, in 2000, the band followed with their third release, the First World War themed album 'Latvian Riflemen'.

In 2003 the world saw the release of 'Thunderforge', which was a fine return to their old themes of ancestral culture and Heathen gods. The next album in line, recorded also in 2003, was the 'Sword Song', - an album of purely acoustic Latvian Folk music and a long coming tribute to their ancient forefathers' heritage.

SKYFORGER spent next few years working on a conceptual album about the legendary Latvian folk hero, Kurbads. The album, similarly entitled 'Kurbads', was published worldwide via American label Metal Blade Records, and was chosen as best Metal album at Latvian Music Awards ceremony in 2010.

SKYFORGER released their latest opus 'Senprūsija' ('Old Prussia') in 2015 on Thunderforge Records. This album tells about old Baltic Prussian tribes, their mythology, life and death. Album was supported by three years of touring across the Europe, visiting 20 countries in total. 'Senprūsija' was voted as best Rock & Metal album at the annual Latvian Music industry Awards "Golden Microphone" 2015.

Through the years, the band has been busy on festival stages all over Europe, has performed also in USA and South America, and SKYFORGER is well known for their non-compromising live performances.

At the moment, band is actively working on a new album with a tentative release date in 2023.
