"Yarilo" by Arkona

If you're into pagan folk metal kind of stuff, which I am, you might like the Russian group Arkona (Аркона). I think I found them through Eric, if I'm not mistaken, and even though there is a language barrier, I really enjoyed their most recent album, Goi, Rode, Goi!!!. They have a new video out for their song "Yarilo" that I thought I'd share here. I don't really know much about these guys, but I was really surprised when the female lead singer, Masha, started in on the growling! I love it, even though I'm not a huge fan of growling. Here is sounds so happy, though!

I've seen Arkona at a very small medieval/pagan festival in germany "Hörnerfest", they are a great band and the singer can growl AND clean sing very well, amazing!

Hi Makko, thanks for commenting!

Very cool that you have seen them live! Masha looks like such an energetic performer and the band as a whole looks like they are having a great time on stage. I bet they were awesome to see live.
