Aaskereia is a German pagan black metal band formed in 1997. Musically, Aaskereia focuses on the melodic sound of their guitars very much. The vocals range from clear singing passages to some sort of howling. The band’s lyrics mostly focus on death, battles that are fought, dark and tragic romance, or the woods and everything that is inside them or happening inside them. Aaskereia is sometimes accused of being national socialistic, but their website states that they dissociate themselves from any political ideology.
