Quite possibly one of the most atmospheric, yet still beautiful and energetic albums to ever be released, in my opinion. This whole album is filled with golden song after golden song, and features the track that I honestly feel may be the best song ever recorded, "Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet". It was Windir's second full length album, and despite the still somewhat raw and ambient production (ambient as in lots of background noise) it is an amazing album. For those of you that have not listened to this album, or even Windir at all, please do your ears a favor and do it . It is too bad that Valfar passed away, because after listening to their 4 main releases it only leaves you wanting more and more of his amazing music.

Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet

I'm always up for some mid-to-late 1990's Scandinavian black metal. That song Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet is pretty whack. It reminds me of the earlier Blut Aus Nord albums but a little cleaner and happier. I really like the keyboards (it may be guitars as well) in the first four minutes.
