Hello one and all!

I was wondering if you guys knew some good *unknown* bands that sing about mythology. Preferably norwegian myths but all will do.
I'm particularly looking for (melodic) death metal or black metal.

I am really looking for quite unknown bands, I know the big bands with millions upon million of views, I want something refreshing and new I don't know already. ;)


Thanks a lot in advance everybody!

House of Atreus is a cool new melodic death metal band that has lyrics about Greek/Roman history and mythology.

"unknown" is way too fucking subjective, man. Especially when you don't mention stuff you do know already.

I'm sorry, man, I did not mean to upset you.

As to try to clarify what I might or might not have left too vague;

With unknown bands I mean bands that have let's say < 100k views on YouTube for example.
-- Example:



Or what I rather mean is that I would like suggestions of bands that I most likely haven't heard (of) before. For example Metallica, Wintersun, Black Sabbath and so forth.

And if you want an example of the kind of music I'm looking for I'm looking for something like this:


Or Naglfar's Harvest as can be listened to above.

These song obviously don't have the lyrics I want, but the music is what I tihnk you meant. As all mythological lyrics would be just fine.

I hope that this makes more clear to you what I'm looking for. I did not mean to upset you.

Like Wily said, unknown is a pretty vague adjective when you request bands because we're left with no starting point to actually, you know, recommend you bands. ;)

With that being said, try Kronos from France. It will probably blow you away if you don't consider the sound to be too brutal, and the typical starting point is the sophomore album.
