Latvian folk metallers Skyforger have received an award for ‘best rock album’ at the “Gada Balva” Latvian Music Awards, for their 2010 release Kurbads.
Pēteris Kvetkovskis, singer/lead guitarist with the band tells ZT; ‘we are glad to see that heavy metal can get recognition on a national level, and I hope this is just the first step for metal bands being accepted by non-metalheads.’
A video of the band receiving their award can be viewed below;
