Also, the first full-length album Lands of Njord is still in everybodys ear. Trelleborg is one of the main acts of the North Winds over Europe 2012 tour.
Yggdrasil from the very South of Sweden play a powerful metal rooted in the bands interest for Scandinavian folk music. In spring 2011, the first two albums Kvällningsvindar över Nordrönt Land and Vedergällning have been re-released together with the current album Irrbloss. Together with Trelleborg they will headline this tour.

The „goat“ represents evil and the „hammer“ represents hate. 2009 the latest album A Cult Revived came out. A new album is in progress.
The music performed by Woodscream is a harmonic composition of the various genres of modern metal, which includes the elements of European folk traditions and the atmosphere of the dark middle-age tales.
