One of the absolute best pagan/metal albums I own. There are Latvian warriorsongs from the 12th century incorporated into the band's compositions. And it's magnificent. The guitar work is what stands out to me though, effective and crushing. Battle sounds, nature sounds and water crashing up against the side of a boat, make the imagination abound with accurate visions. Kauja Pie Saules, " brings you back to the time when countless bloody battles were fought. Time passes on....but legends remain, nothing's forgotten. Our banner adorned by Perkons sign is still flying"......... Brilliant album from a historical and musical perspective. Get this now.

Great album, must evaluate. There are some Latvian folk tunes in album intro and 5th song of the album - can be skipped. Generally it's one of the best black/pagan metal albums I have heard, the best song is the last (sacred firecross).

Originally released in 1998, Kauja Pie Saules is the debut full-length from Latvian pagan/black/folk metal band Skyforger. Lyrically, the band focuses heavily on their pagan roots, Latvian history and ancient warfare.

Skyforger may have moved in a more solidly folk direction on later albums, but on Kauja Pie Saules the band is more or less in straight-up black metal mode. There are some folk melodies and the occasional use of bagpipes or mouth harp, but the album sounds a lot like something Dimmu Borgir would have released. It's wickedly fast, has a great epic feel (it's a conceptual album about a major battle after all), and has guttural vocals and blastbeats. It's a great mix of sounds, and like Mithotyn, Skyforger really satisfies those who prefer their folk metal with a measure of real metal aggression.

Kauja Pie Saules is a very impressive early effort from a band that still remains overlooked. If you're a fan of the current crop of folk metal bands or are looking for some pagan-influenced black metal, you'd do well to check out Skyforger.
