89 Moonsorrow Moonsorrow Moonsorrow is a pagan metal band formed in Helsinki, Finland, in 1995. Musically, the band incorporates elements of black metal and folk metal in their sound.

Album after album they produce pure quality. I really like bands what can create songs above 10 minutes and keep them interesting. Along with Agalloch, they are epic!

They are the band that got me into black metal, and apart from their debut, Metsa, every album/EP they have released has been tremendous. Moonsorrow have definitely produced the best black metal music that I have ever heard.

Great dude, his music is improving and he definitely loves and fights for black metal. I find that he knows even more than he speaks about (he has hard time expresing himself) so I'm looking foward to his future material.

We Hail Thy Entrance is the best blast metal song of all time. Give these guys a listen they're absolutely amazing.

Awesome band! Very dark and melodic, listen to "We Hail Thy Entrance",
"Together we Summon the Dark" "Fhinstinian Nightbreed", and "I've Watched the Moon Grow Old"!

99 Master's Hammer

Best lyrics and occult atmosphere ever. Just listen to their epic Ritual Album.
