Falconer

Following the demise of Viking/folk-themed black metal band Mithotyn in 1999, Swedish guitarist/bassist Stefan Weinerhall and drummer Karsten Larsson took a right turn toward power metal with their next project, Falconer, whose studio lineup was initially completed by accomplished stage actor and singer Mathias Blad. Promising demos quickly landed the group a deal from America's Metal Blade, and early Falconer albums like 2001's eponymous debut and 2002's Chapters from a Vale Forlorn distinguished themselves for meshing lingering traces of Scandinavian folk music into power metal's often predictable template. But the band's rising fortunes only led to conflict: Blad decided to quit rather than let ever increasing touring commitments get in the way of his parallel theatrical career, forcing Weinerhall and Larsson to replace him with new vocalist Kristoffer Göbel even as they hired second guitarist Anders Johansson and bassist Peder Johansson to flesh out their concert lineup. This same quintet also recorded Falconer's third album, The Sceptre of Deception, in 2003, but a subsequent falling out resulted in the Johanssons being ejected in favor of new members Jimmy Hedlund (second guitar) and Magnus Linhardt (bass). On 2005's Grime vs. Grandeur, Falconer did away with their medieval/fairy tale/Tolkien-esque lyrics and, coincidentally or not, the album was their first to receive wide-scale negative reviews. Getting back to basics, singer Mathias Blad returned to the band, making his triumphant return on Falconer's fifth album, 2006's Northwind, an album that found the band returning to the more fantasy-oriented sound of its earlier work. Although 2008's Among Beggars and Thieves would trend toward the heavier side of their sound, Falconer continued to integrate the sounds of traditional Swedish folk music into their seventh album, Armod, which was released in 2011, as well as their eighth album, 2014's driving and elegant Black Moon Rising. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

Mathis needs to come to the fold
'Pandora Administrato r 0 6 8 ' . . . I want to believe. 'Skip on Peewee' sounds like an absolutely hilarious band name, and every time I find a band based solely on how funny their name is, they turn out to be awesome (Like Super Heavy Goat A**)... But I can't find this mystical band you mentioned.
If u say BEETLEJUICE 3 times he shows
This band gets a HARRUMPH
Brutal as f**k
If u guys like Falconer a lot I found a "Viking death metal" band on pandora. It's called Skip on Peewee, look them up they're drummer is phenomenal
great new album
F**king awesome!
Viking Metal kicks a**!!!!
The Bio is a bit behind on this band...Recen t rumors suggest that original vocalist Mathias Blad has returned to the fold to begin work on a fifth Falconer album...
home made beer and Falconer :D Cheers from mjölby !!
hopefully blad can come back, the other singer is good but different
Awesome
I enjoy the content of their songs
Epic sounds from the far Northlands!! :-)
they need to come and tour the states and teach the new kids how to rock
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
This band was officially my favorite when i heard the song "man of the hour"
If there ever be a soundtrack to what goes on in my mind...it would be a Falconer album.
Falconer has got to be in the top ten folk metal bands in Europe.Excel l e n t guitar playing
Northwind is my favorite album by them, it really needs to be added!
They really need to add Northwind
:'( There isn't as north wind to embrace me.
I wanna c them live! The power metal band beyond the limits of power metal \m/
My favorite power metal band \m/ \m/
er falconer lol
faconer is my fav album of them :)
these guys are just so flippin good. I wonder what a live show is like. you can tell the effort they put into their studio work.
I tend to eat popcorn when I listen to Falconer. Great band !
Wh-WHAT?!?! No Northwind? Now that's a shame!
agreed
Yeah those ones where they speak a different language are some of my favorite.
Love the song Herr Peder Och Hans Syster no idea what theyre saying though lol
I personaly like the song lord of the blacksmiths its a good song. the band itself sounds epic and mythical.
Their bio say Grime vs Granduer got bad reviews! wow thats one of my favorites!!
Ooooommmmmgg g g g g so glad Mathias came back
bushaxetothe m a x
I like the sound of Mathias Blad.
They just add Armod? never heard that album before today on Pandora, pretty cool so far from what i've heard, i like how its all in Swedish.
email them and request that album be added--they will
Why does this place not have their Northwind album? Seriously, I just found out about that one and now I want to violently kick Pandora in it's metaphorical shins for leaving it out.
Don't feed Troll's! Ignore them. Idiots
@Keith Pixton: Interesting comparison. I would tend to agree with you. Like a much heavier Tull with some folk elements mixed in.
@Yoho: Yeah. That's a sic album. I downloaded all their albums. Really awesome stuff.
Are you tired of the Weeping F**got crying out for attention? Well I have the solution. The key is to "Out-Troll" the Troll. Willow and Moomoo spam about Godsuck, so lets all spam about our favorite bands. Once we have a good fifty people spamming and trolling, Willow will become powerless and fade back into his hole and continue wacking it to Rodsmack posters. Then we can stop OUR trolling and get back to a clean, Willow-free environment. Who's with me?!!!
I picked up Among Beggars And Thieves last night, boy is it ever good. I really love Mathias Blad's voice and how they mix folk elements into otherwise straight-for w a r d power metal.
Found them thru a clearance sale online at Hot Topic believe it or not... If you havn't heard of Alestrom, check 'em out, the were in San Diego in December and kicked A** (in a good way of course)....
Why have I never heard about these guys before? They rock.
LOL! That's even better than the "Obama-nable Snowman"
Musa h99 you will think its cheesy when they come to your house, lop your head off with a polearm, skin your face, mount your head on said polearm, write a single about it, and make money from it.
Mathias Blad is a profoundly excellent vocalist.
IS WILLOW A C**K SUCKING QUEEBO FEMBOTIC MORON? ALL I READ IS HOW THIS GUY LIKES ONE BAND AND NO OTHER BAND MATTERS. GO AWAY PRESIDENT OF THE GAY METAL FAN CLUB...ONCE AND FOR ALL!!
