About

ISENMOR is a dual-violin fronted folk metal band from Baltimore, MD, USA. Combining elements of folk metal greats ENSIFERUM, HEIDEVOLK, ELUVEITIE, FALKENBACH, and TÝR, ISENMOR fuses the heart of the Old World with the spirit of those who sought out new shores, combining intricate violin passages with savage guitar riffs and multi­-part vocal harmonies. ISENMOR tells tales of battle, drink, sorrow, and adventure, drawing lyrical inspiration directly from the original sources preserved since the Dark Ages.

ISENMOR describes itself as “Gewyrdelic Folc Metal.” “Gewyrdelic” is an Old English word that roughly translates to “historical”.  The meaning of the term, as well as its etymology, describe ISENMOR’s lyrical and thematic focus on the history and legends of the Anglo-Saxon and Germanic Peoples. The use of a ‘c’ instead of a ‘k’ in the word “Folc” reflects the Old English spelling, which otherwise has the same meaning and pronunciation as it does in modern English.

ISENMOR is now focusing their sights on promoting the release of their debut album Shieldbrother,  writing Album II, and discovering what awaits wherever the wind shall carry them.
