Finnish folk metal band Folkrim is set to release their second studio album On Foaming Waves on October 21st 2022 via Inverse Records. The third and last single Midsummer Mead is released with a music video.

The band comments:

"Juhannus is the most important celebration for a Finn, where the immortal midsummer sun shines throughout the entire birch, beer and lake -filled night. The finnish summer is beautiful but short, so it's best to enjoy as much as you can while it lasts. Midsummer Mead is built upon these themes as an ode for living in the moment, while representing the heavier musical side of the album. To go with the song, we gathered old clips from behind the scenes of the band and crammed them together for a drunken party of a music video. The summer might be already over and the cold winter is knocking on the door, but midsummer will live eternal in the heart of a Finn. So let our horns of gold overflow!"

Folkrim is a five man band from Rauma, the grim western coast of Finland. To keep the long winters at bay, inspired by beer and nature, we wound up combining metal music with traditional instruments. Originally a one-man project, Folkrim grew fast into a full band and we released 'Tales of Tumult', our self published album in the spring of 2021. A year later we've joined forces with Inverse Records and our second album, 'On Foaming Waves' is awaiting its release in the fall of 2022.
