Vanir is a Danish folk metal band from Roskilde. Musically, they combine elements from death metal with melodies and instruments from folk music.
In addition to growl vocals, drums, bass, and heavy electric guitars, the group uses instruments such as keytar, bagpipes, tin whistle, recorder, Jew harp, and other folk instruments.
Some songs also have roots in folk songs. The group’s Danish text universe is based on Nordic mythology and the Viking do’s and the barn.
