Pagan/Folk Black Metal band from Latvia.
Started under the name Grindmaster Dead.
Despite accusations of being politically influenced, Skyforger is merely devoted to the ancient history and pagan mythology of its home country, without any visible signs of political leaning. The band has removed the Latvian thunder cross from its logo because of repeated misunderstandings.

In 2003 Skyforger released an all-folk album, Zobena Dziesma (Sword Song), in cooperation with the Latvian Culture Capital foundation, sponsored by the government.

After the release of their successful third album "Thunderforge", the band was nominated in various rock music categories for the Latvian Grammy awards 2004 and the band performed live at the award-ceremony.
