HEIDEVOLK – the name says a lot about these Dutchmen’s stylistic direction. Close to nature, mythological, pagan. The septet was formed in 2002 and has produced four albums which all gained them a lot of respect in the scene. A lot has happened since their last appearance in Dinkelsbühl in 2008. While back then HEIDEVOLK were still an insider’s tip in terms of pagan/folk metal, nowadays they belong to the genre’s established bands who further stand out because of the use of their vernacular language. Furthermore, their compositions have moved from the initial singalong party anthems to more epic pagan metal, which indicates they know about booze-fueled dance parties as well as misty battlefield romanticism and everything in between. Not many bands can make this claim.
