After starting with Silver Fist, we present the band Aiumeen Basoa who is well known in the Basque metal scene. They are considered to be the pioneers of Basque Pagan Folk Metal. The band formed in 1994 and started their discography with 3 songs on a split-called "Triarchy of Vasconia / Iluntasunaren Itzulera" along with two other bands from the Basque Pagan Metal scene called Adhur and Ilbeltz, and was released in 1999 by the label War Is Imminent. Currently the band comprises of Egoitz, Beleak, Mikelot, Oihane, Imanol, Jonas and Eider.
In Aiumeen Basoa, you can find the Basque Folk melodies spiced with extreme metal, with many changes of rhythms, mixed with a variety of instruments and mixed with Norwegian black metal influences such as Ulver or In The Woods. The mixture of these ingredients make Aiumeen Basoa one of the most original bands from the current metal scene and will be included in the seventh edition of the. As the band advises: "So relax and let your spirit fly to the forests of Euskal Herria ...".
You can enjoy their music in the video below.
This year the festival will be held on the 7th and 8th October in Hall Niessen Renteria, Gipuzkoa.
