I almost forgot about this album! I just listened to most of the songs and it sounds better than anything
theyve put out before. My friend is gonna love this album, hes an even bigger ensiferum fan than i am and is a sucker for the really folkly parts, which is the opposite for me.
Usually I find that in metal folkly parts tend to drag on, but ensiferum has done a great job of creating a perfect balance of both.
I am definetely going to purchase this CD when it is released and I am very excited to hear it in its entirety.
I only wish that their upcoming tour didn't have to fall on a school night
but neverthelless, i did get to see them at summer slaughter and although they were out of place, they kicked ass!
