“Are you ever truly prepared for an invading Viking horde New York City?” You know that you can only be so ready when it comes to a Metal assault that comes care of the mighty Amon Amarth.

Welcome to the Heathenfest!!!
This was sure to be a good one as it found the wonderful Celtic Metal of Eluveitie taking the main stage with support from Austria’s Belphegor. They called the event “Heathenfest” and it would bring together a few other cool bands who travel between the Folkish and the Darker realms by also delivering Vreid from Norway, Alestorm from Scotland and Kivimetsan Druidi from Finland. Talk about getting your money’s worth on a ticket. In the past we had seen three of the five acts performing tonight and based on this wanted to see the whole thing so we got there early enough to bring you the full scoop and present photos of everyone.

“Paganfest USA” was the title of this astounding tour that brought together four great Viking and Folk Metal bands for the first time on US shores. It was great to find the likes of Ensiferum, Turisas, Eluveitie and Tyr delivering their branded styles for a packed house at the venerated B.B. King Blues Club and we made sure to be front and center for the whole shebang. Click the logo below to see our comments and photos on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
