Black Sun Prophets are pioneering a new genre of metal that we call Craft Metal. We use this new genre to differ from “Pagan Metal’s” guttural/screamed vocals, and “Pagan Folk Metal” which traditionally is composed of pagan themed songs and an attempted revival of old school folk instruments and melodies.
In contrast, Craft Metal song themes center around the spiritual aspect of Paganism, Pagan daily living, and the sharing of wisdom through song and dance. All while helping fellow Pagan communities form strong, long lasting, unifying bonds. We do this out in the open and with no spiritual boundaries.
Listen closely to our songs and you will find Pagan-Spiritual Wisdom within the lyrics.
