“Winterhymn is simply one of the best unsigned bands in America today, and the fact they were able to do it by being folk metal only makes it more impressive. Support this band so that we can get more music from them!”
"Never before has metal been as fun as it is on Winterhymn’s self-released debut of epic folk metal. Hailing from northern Kentucky but with hearts of northern Europeans, each track on Songs for the Slain is an ale-swigging adventure of fun and epic glory. I can’t seem to reduce the ridiculous grin that I always find plastered on my face while listening to this album. Grab a frosty mug of ale and enjoy!"
“A great debut! Fans of Ensiferum, Eluveitie and similar bands I recommend it strongly to the album a few listens to be awarded on the facebook of this band! (TRANSLATION)”
“It’s rare for a band in Cincinnati’s Metal scene to make a splash quite as big as Winterhymn’s, especially after only a handful of live appearances. But, then again, not many bands have the singular vision of Winterhymn. The sextet has its goals in sight and is determined to slay any obstacles in their path.”
"Their performance was something to see but more interesting to hear – they may have even converted me – and with all the chanting of their name, it became pretty clear who the crowd favorite was."
"By the end of the set, the entire crowd was ready to don some armor and ride into battle."
"Sounds like Flogging Molly got butt-raped by Venom"
