Help me find this compilation!

Question

So, around 2006 or something, i used to listen to a Folk/Viking compilation non-stop and for the past weeks i've been trying to find this awesome cd again without success.
I've spent hours searching literally everywhere on the web but this damn compilation is nowhere to be found.
The name was "Folk & Viking Metal Compilation" and it was splitted in 2 cds... I also remember finding this compilation again a few years ago with a different name...

It started with Finntroll - Trollhammaren, followed by Korpiklaani - Beer Beer (or maybe Moskau?).

Those are all the songs i remember being in the compilation:

Finntroll- Trollhammaren
Korpiklaani - Beer Beer
(Edit) Black Messiah - Moskau
Ensiferum - Blood is the price for glory
Eluveitie - Uis Elveti
Turisas - A portage to the unknown
Terasbetoni - Taivas lyo tulta
Skyclad - The great brain robbery
Manegarm - En fallen fader
Bathory - Mother earth father thunder
Cruachan - (Edit) The Brown Bull of Cooley
Waylander - Born to the fight
Equilibrium - Blut im auge
(Edit) In Extremo - Vollmond
(Edit) Subway to Sally - Sieben
(Edit) Mithothyn - In the clash of arms
(Edit) Moonsorrow - Kylän Päässä
(Edit) Shandmaul - Mitgift
(Edit) Nomas Land - Torir Scald
(Edit) Troll Gnet El - Sad Widow (Not Sure)
(Edit) ???? - Jerusalem

I don't necessary need to find the CD, a simple complete tracklist would be great! Thank you to whoever can help me!

Edit: Apparntly i almost managed to recreate the whole tracklist, although im sure some of the songs are missing.

I don't know what the label was but i remember finding the CD a few years ago on a website that lists all the album releases worldwide, so i guess it wasn't a bootleg. A friend of mine also told me he got the same compilation from a magazine, back when magazines was one of the few ways to discover new bands.

Edit: From what i remember this compilation was pretty well known between Folk and Viking metal fans, which makes me even more sure it was an original thing.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
