Balyios, melodic folk metallers hailing from the farthest northern reaches of Pretoria, have given us here at Metal4Africa.com a rare treat, (well, rare in the local scene) a short teaser of their track Nifelheim, from their upcoming album “Homeward”!
Nifelheim, in Norse mythology, is the primordial realm of ice and cold, and was at one point the home of Hel, goddess of the dead, and daughter of the trickster god, Loki. That’s pretty bad-ass, and what you can hear of the song is already great!
“Homeward” is slated for release in September 2012. Having been in contact with the band, it is clear that the album will be something unique in the South African Metal scene, and production is running smoothly!
Stream the teaser for “Nifelheim” below and let us know what you think in the comments!
