Angeli Di Pietra

belgian band that makes folk metal and handed out free demo's at paganfest, thank you for the demo's ^^ What do you get when you mix metal with the terms “power” and “folk”?
Angeli di Pietra, of course!
This Antwerp-based band came to life in 2002 and after a rocky start found the members to complete their goal of world domination. Even though their first demo-offering, “Songs of Solace” (2004) didn't match up to the band's expectations, it provided the learning process needed to really kick some ass by improving the songs.

Last To Be Picked

The United Kingdom. A melting pot of a series of wholly different areas, it is a bastion of eclectic art, music, and food - drawing on its own history of romanticism and philosophy to stand out as a tour de force of positivity in the most negative of times. Nestled within its heart, an uprising of emotionally-charged lyrics have flowed out with serene guitar work and accentual worldly instruments to write a new definition of what it is to be insightful.
