Folk Metal band from Lausanne - Switzerland
Formed in 2005 by five 14-years-old buddies, HARMONIKS is from its beginning oriented towards pagan/folk/epic metal. After a few changes in the line-up throughout the years, HARMONIKS now consists of six skilled musicians, all of them with stage experiences. Those six friends offer a music which is inspired, epic, melodic, but which also makes you want to drink beers until the end of times. Vastly inspired by Nordic mythology, but also by Tolkien's universe, the texts are dense and deep, filled with adventures and battles, with mystical tales and latent alcoholism.
The folk melodies, sometimes played on the keyboard, sometimes on the flute or on the bouzouki intermingle with powerful and sharp guitars, all punctuated by intense bass and and battle-like drums. The vocals, straight out of the plains of Valhalla are calling the warriors to battle by their unquenchable fire. HARMONIKS has released a demo in 2009, is about to record an EP early 2016, and an album is expected thereafter.
