Svartsot is a Danish metal band that plays folk metal merged with death and black elements and is signed by Napalm Records. Their first album was highly praised around Europe earning the description “The new wave of folk metal” along with Swiss Eluveitie. Their whole style is based on the Viking Age as they dress up in clothes related to that period. Along with that, the texts are about Nordic tales and mythology.
Cris Frederiksen is currently the only active original Svartsot member left in the band. Four members decided to part with the band in December 2008.
