Skyforger have been tempering their music in the smithy of the Thundergod since 1995. For the last decade, the band has been fighting 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 five Skyforger albums.
In between album recordings, Skyforger has been also busy on the stage, behind the belt of band are already four European tours; many festival appearances & mini-tours and Skyforger is well known for their non-compromise live performances.
Currently Skyforger is forging songs for the next album with release date in 2009.
