Pagan/Folk Metal band from RÄ«ga, Latvia. Formed in 1995 out of the remains of doom metal band Grindmaster Dead. They released their first demo 'Semigalls' Warchant' in 1997, this one is released full length(three additional songs) in 2005. Most of their songs are about pagan gods, war and warfare, as well as traditional Latvian folk songs and their metal covers. Skyforger mostly plays folk/pagan metal, although their forth album Zobena Dziesma (Swordsong), released in 2003, was a pure folk album.

In between album recordings, Skyforger has been also busy on stage, playing as many concerts as they can. Behind the belt of band are already four European tours; many mini-tours and festival appearances and Skyforger is well known for their non-compromise live performances.

Currently Skyforger is forging songs for the next album and of course will not forget about live activities on foreign stages.

Skyforger was involved in a minor scandal with one of their former producers, who believed they were affiliated with Neo-nazism. The reason for this was the sunwheel, incorporated in Skyforger's logo. Some websites have therefore listed Skyforger as a Neo-nazi band. The band denies any such claims and doesn't display any Nazistic tendencies in their lyrics(actually the opposite), the scandal was a result of the producer's poor knowledge of ancient Indo-European symbols. Many people doesn't know it and therefore misinterpret sunwheel as swastika, although sunwheel is much older symbol, and nazis did peculate it as their own.

Their discography includes:
1997 - Semigall's Warchant (demo)
1998 - Kauja pie Saules (The Battle of Saule)
2000 - Latviešu Strēlnieki (Latvian Riflemen)
