Take a listen to this. The best discovery I've made as of late. Epic pagan atmospherics forged through Amebix style dark crust. CELTIC CRUST? This stuff is amazing.

Been aware of this band a while (got a rehearsal tape and the first album)

Definitely a great band! Need more though!

Excellent stuff there. I have been aware of the name for a few years but never bothered checking them out. Better rectify that.

If I remember correctly I judged the book by its cover before and dismissed them as some crappy pagan black metal band. How wrong I was.

Now just waiting for the label to answer my e-mail so I can get the new album along with Battle Staffs...

Seven Bloodied Ramparts is definitely one of the top albums this year for me. So fucking good... really original sounding riffs which can occasionally bring newer Enslaved or Primordial to mind... all clad in the Amebix forged battle armour and delivered like a bloody axe blow! Maybe a whiff of the rousing spirit á la new Darkthrone to be found herein too...

Ditch ALL those crap pagan metal acts and get onto BRETWALDAS

Sounding like what Amebix should have done after "Monolith" is a definite fucking plus!!

Absolutely... Plus, Monolith had some absolutely killer heathen/pagan lyrics to boot. I am really enjoying this band -- and imagining it to be the followup to Monolith.

Whoa there! You're making it sound like they're Amebix vol. 2, that's not the whole story by far, you know!

True. But the similarities with content, sound, etc. are pretty undeniable. I am personally excited to see this style brought in a non charged hair, studded vest, d-beat type fashion. Proper stuff here.

Great band. I have the 'Droner' CD and 'Battle Staffs In The Mushroom Woods' CD, but not this new album. Didn't know it was released yet, must get it.

'Beneath the Eves' is a fucking amazing song.

I like this quote from the review of the new album on Julian Cope's website:

"Bretwaldas’ lyricist Wartooth brusquely declaims his Odinist messages like a Danelaw Lemmy..."

The comparison to Lemmy is a good one.
