Nu-German Folk Metal with Harpyie

German folk metal band Harpyie release new single ‘Ikonoklast’, taken from the forthcoming new studio album Voodoo, to be released on October 25th through Metalville Records.

The band impresses with a modern and much fresher look than before, Harpyie having cast off their medieval shackles  entering a new era in their history with Ikonoklast being a rebellious anthem concerning individualism and humanity.  

Musically, a combination of strong nu-metal sounds, pop elements and modern sound elements, the five musicians are said to have injected Voodoo with “a powerful, cool and danceable charm – which can keep up with any modern top chart production”.

Hailing from East Westphalia, with Blindflug their debut album appearing in 2012, Harpyie has played its way into the hearts of the German metal community with their authenticity and consistently individual approach.

Whether at the Wacken Open Air or the Summerbreeze, the five rebels have thrilled the young and genre-breaking target groups as well as the traditional metal fans. With their last album, Harpyie also made it into the German album charts reaching 34th place, and proved folk metal has mainstream appeal.
