Here’s a fun one for you guys. Parts sword swinging, beer swilling folk metal, nut crunching death and black metal, parts Opeth-ian prog dynamics, and parts shatteringly beautiful nature metal. Pretty much, for me, everything this record does check off on my unwritten list of this that make me love a record.
I really don’t have much to say other than I just wanted to make you all aware of this kick-ass batch of tunes. Great songwriting that is brutal, beautiful, and above all, absolutely fun to listen to over and over again. Well worth the 7 clams. Fans of Opeth, Ensiferum, Turisas, and Eluvetie should not skip this one. Don’t think, trust me, buy it!!!!!
Give it a spin and let us know what you thought.
