Pillaging Villagers: Pure Peasant metal and north pole!

Pillaging Villagers - Pillaging Villagers

Today Pure Peasant Metal from Milwaukee, WI USA and the band is Pillaging Villagers.

Merging the punk-influenced aggressiveness of crossover thrash with the Celtic melodies of folk metal, the peasant metal of Pillaging Villagers takes the listener on a journey to a medieval world of pitchfork-wielding rebellion where songs of victory and sorrow alike are belted out with tankards raised high. The track Wretched On The Earth,

Lyrics:

My calloused hands have tilled the frozen earth

Beard of black, streaked with white, like a plowed field in a frost

My wizened face has felt the icy wind

With a chill in my heart as I ponder what I’ve lost

My father was a swineherd, not a warrior or lord

This scrap of land my kingdom, this iron spade my sword

We rise at morning’s light to tend our treasured flocks and fields

We’ve never sought Valhalla or The Riddle of Steel

We are the wretched of the earth

The underclass

So raise your glass

One and all

Though sacrifice and strife

We carry on

Till all is won

Standing tall

We are strong

Side by side

We sing a song

Of hope and pride

Though we live poor and die without a cent to leave our heirs

We are rich in bonds of friendship and the brotherhood we share

So gather ‘round my lads and sing, your cherished loved ones by your side

Savor every waking moment, for tomorrow you may die

Wretched of the earth

The underclass

So raise your glass

One and all

Though sacrifice and strife

We carry on

Till all is won

Standing tall

Pillaging Villagers will release their self-titled debut album March 11, 2022, and of course the band wanted some promotion and they probably reach out to many web zines. For some unknown reason they is aware of Permafrost Today from the icy Norway which is the neighbors to the North pole!

Pillaging Villagers takes the listener on a journey to a medieval world of pitchfork wielding rebellion where songs of victory and sorrow alike are belted out with tankards raised high. Whether described as punk Ensiferum or thrash Dropkick Murphys , Pillaging Villagers is a raucous, high energy debut that rampages into the town square from its opening bars, burning & looting without respite throughout its tight 39 min runtime.

A concept album composed entirely by vocalist David Frazer, Pillaging Villagers features the session contributions of drummer Jason Hirt (Ghost Bath), guitarist Brian Koenig (Lords Of The Trident) & bassist Adam Tucker (A Scanner Darkly).

About Ulf Backstrøm (7174 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
