Pagan Reign - Novgorodian Folk Dance
Genres: Folk Metal Release Date: 6/2/2012
Novgorod is a Russian city with great historical significance. It was the center of the Novgorod Republic, which existed between the 12th and 15th centuries. A great variety of medieval and pre-medieval sites exist within this hallowed city of tzars. Apparently it is also the location of many folk dances, which serve as the inspiration for this folk metal instrumental from the Russian storm-masters Pagan Reign.

This file starts off fairly difficult for the first four measures, but is not so ridiculous after that. This file is also the least repetitious of my recent files, thanks to a constantly morphing BPM and reluctance by the band to repeat any motif for more than eight or sixteen measures.
