Scumbag Folk death metal... A genre that I've been warming up to more frequently of late. This recording from Spanish band Drakum is a fantastic example of how it can sound when it's done well! Plenty of the folk element without sacrificing melody or metal for the sake of the novelty of it. If you're into Claim The Throne or Finntroll or even Skyclad I'd say this would be right at home in your collection! Favorite track: The Wanderer.

Track Name: Around The Oak
In a place far away
a village arose
from the ashes that remains
around an ancient oak
the survivors promised once
that they never would leave
the old oak remembers them
that forever they will stand

Around the oak
we will fight together
around the oak
we call to arms
Around the oak
we're standing forever
'cause here is our future
our present, our past
Track Name: Absinthe
Sweetness fills your palate
green fairy starts her flight
everything is possible
don't be late
it was forbidden years ago
they couldn't understand
how its mystical properties
can open your minds

All we need to be free is
all you need is
Drink Absinthe
taste the green one
Drink Absinthe
or the red one
Drink Absinthe
blue or black
Drink Absinthe

Drink Absinthe, Drink Absinthe

Put your favourite in a glass
a lump of sugar in the spoon
burn it and when it melts
add some water and enjoy
from Van Gogh to Baudelaire
Picasso or Hemingway
all of them enjoy the trip
that green fairy offered to them

All we need to be free is
all you need is
Drink Absinthe
Track Name: The Wanderer
He's a man without law
winding along the mires
no one knows his name
but he's called the wanderer
children point at his head
altough they are afraid
because their mothers said
that he'll come to eat them
he knows what people think
but he's the only one
that remembers his parents death
when he was only a child

No one know his name
but he's called the wanderer
even his lost soul is dub
the wanderer

He travels from town to town
like he has something to find
a face in his memory
with a scar on the eye
years ago he was a prince
full of joy and filled with love
but one day his hapiness
was cut by a dark man's sword
in his heart a fire burns
and he will never stop
until he find this evil man
and makes him pay his bloody crimes

No one know his name
but he's called the wanderer
even his lost soul is dub
the wanderer
