Kauja Pie Saules was recorded and mixed at Phoenix Recordings, Riga, Latvia during the mounth of leaves, May 1998 Produced by Gints Lundbergs and Skyforger Recorded, mixed & enginereed by Gints Lundbergs

In Kauja pie Saules, Skyforger charges in from the flanks, their hatchets, bows, and swords at the ready, shouting, Yeah? Our ancestors could raze your villages to the ground before breakfast! Fucking watch us! Skyforger lives up to that hastily crafted statement to the letter, and this is almost entirely due to the extent of the black metal influences. As the album progresses through the forty-odd minutes of blackened folk goodness, one gets a sense of purpose, like there's a story or point this album is trying to convey. Each track is a logical step in the progression of the story being told, and even though a typical person like myself can't make heads or tails of the lyrics, the sense that the album is going somewhere with each song is apparent from the music. Breaks and interludes, often in the form of brief periods of chanting, signify stays in the bloodshed and warfare happening all around.

Warriors sharpened their swords, crossed them for an oath: I would rather lose my head, not the land of my fathers. Kilkim Žaibu 18. ++ 17/03/2016 ++. Skyforger receives Latvian Music Award 2015.
