Lumsk picture
Lumsk biography
LUMSK are a progressive Norwegian band who combine traditional and contemporary folk themes and moods with metal and folk-rock arrangements, and with instrumentation that covers many spectrums in between.

Each of the band's three studio albums to-date has shown both growth and experimentation on the part of the musicians, ranging from a folk concept record ('Åsmund Frægdegjevar') to a darker, more metal-influenced work with 'Troll' and finally the meticulously-produced and brighter neo-progressive 'Det Vilde Kor'.

The band has undergone several lineup changes in recent years but retains a core membership of Espen Warankov Godø on keyboards, guitarist Eystein Garberg and bassist Espen Hammer along with several recent additions and numerous guest musicians on each studio album.

3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

Lumks is one of the unfairly unnoticed bands from Norway , with 3 albums in their pockets so far. Their debut is named Åsmund Frægdegjevar released in 2003. Musicaly speaking they combine in good measure progressive metal of the heavier kind with traditional norwegian folk themes, all done with taste. Imagine something like Amorphis in their first years with nice mellotron added in the mix, even some moog is present. Just to be check the instrumental opening Det Var Irlands Kongi Bold and then the second pieces of the album Ormin Lange are simply said excellent, very nice arrangements. Aswell the duo female vocals add a colorful atmosphere. The metal passages are very well combined with folk parts, some acustical passages are aswell present here and there and a plus is they sung in their native tongue, norwegian , who is a plus for me, it gives a special overall dark scandinavian feel. The lyrics aswell is taken and adapted from a famous norwegian poet of XIX century. A nice album, a debut that for some resons is not so popular among fans of heavier kind of prog metal, 3.5 stars for sure.

Thanks to ClemofNazareth for the artist addition.
