Born in 2009, An Norvys is a folk metal band. The female vocals and the violin give a traditional aspect to their songs. This sextet brings back to life legends of Cornwall, a Celtic region in South Western Britain. The distorted guitars provide stories of sunken cities, mermaids in love or giants with new energy.
An Norvys means “earth” in Cornish. The group is from Auvergne, in the middle of France and does not praise a particular country or territory, but celebrates a culture extending beyond the borders of Cornwall.
