Yabgu – Uyan Apka

01 – Dombyra
02 – Fetih
03 – Kongurei
04 – Tuvgan Elim Noghai El
05 – Eki Attar

Yabgu (turco antiguo; “virrey”), es el nombre de esta estupenda formación de pagan, con voces que flirtean con el death.

Tuve el placer de descubrirlos durante la Primavera Árabe (mantenía contacto con varios músicos y heavies de la zona por aquel entonces), y me encandilaron con el video que acompañaba a su primer corte, Dombyra.

Yabgu (ancient Turkish for “viceroy”), is the name of this great pagan formation, whose voices flirt sometimes with death metal.

Had the pleasure to take knowledge of them during the Arab Spring (was in contact with several musicians and fans in the area at the time), and was dazzled by the video that accompanied their first cut, Dombyra.

Music & legends from Lithuania

Twenty years ago, when Internet connections were made via modem and file sharing programs were the law, there was one that particularly great as a breeding ground for all those young heavies lost in their villages.

They called it Soulseek.

Imagine that you have between 14-16 years, you are giving your first steps with your own first (really amateur) groups, and while you do homework with one hand, with the another you´re surfing through the gazillion megabytes of files of thousands of young people like you across Europe, armed only with your poor English (half school, half from songs + dictionary) and an irrepressible curiosity for underground listenersbands far away.

Well, I was one of those young men, and blessed by the gods, I was lucky to get myself a pair of friendly Poles, Russians and Lithuanians, and with them I discovered countless of those gems of rock bands, especially pagan, black and folk, three of my most enjoyable styles, and the three that are still able to get my hairs like hooks.

The disk that I bring today belongs to that golden age when you downloaded complete albums at a rate of one a day / week (depending on the good connection and if the partner was in line… XD ), and when you got it, you listened again and again , hoping to know you enjoyed a hidden gem.

I hope you’ll enjoy them at least as much as I did.

A really great and complete album here, the first album from Ensiferum has the ability to dazzle almost every metalhead without distinction thanks to its wide variety: viking, folk, black, heavy…a variety of styles, all well played, and with melody and enviable quality .

It’s a full done disk, beautifully compiled in which no song downs the level, and that’s hard to do at first listen.

100% recommendable.
