SKYFORGER

MJR XXII stage welcomes the legendary Latvian Pagan Metal band! It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since SKYFORGER’s last show in Juodaragis, and some may even remember their first visit of this powerful Latvian group to Lithuania, which took place 20 years ago in Sudeikiai, by Lake Alaušas! Such occasions need to be remembered and celebrated.

SKYFORGER is an extraordinary Folk Metal band from Riga, they have been forging their music in the smithy of the Latvian Thundergod Pērkons since 1995. For more than a quarter-century, the band has been the flag of Latvian Pagan Metal. Band’s unique combination of ancient and modern influence has given them a wide appeal throughout both the Metal and Folk scenes, and has brought great variety to their song writing over the course of the seven SKYFORGER albums. SKYFORGER is a best known Baltic metal band worldwide, and You better be at Dūburio island to see their greatest show!
