Noa of Metal Injection conducted an interview with frontman Ville Sorvali of the Finnish folk/pagan metal band MOONSORROW in May 2009 during the Paganfest tour of North America, which also featured KORPIKLAANI, PRIMORDIAL, BLACKGUARD and SWASHBUCKLE. Watch the chat and performance footage from the trek below.
MOONSORROW will play its first-ever show in Poland on September 13 at the Baltic Folk & Roots Festival in Stettin.
MOONSORROW's latest EP, "Tulimyrsky" (Firestorm), came out in April 2008 via Spikefarm Records. The CD contains over 60 minutes of music, including a cover version of METALLICA's "For Whom The Bell Tolls".
The band's most recent album, "Viides Luku – Hävitetty", was released in North America in April 2007 via Unruly Sounds/The End Records. The CD — 56 minutes of music comprised from two songs — continues to place the group as one of the forerunners of the folk/viking metal scene due in part to their extensive use of folklore and pagan elements in their music and imagery.
