I finally come to listen to an excellent album! Well, here I am holding the new album of these inspired Finnish musicians right in my hands! After coping with all the line up troubles (the vocal player lost his voice and Somnium-the fonder of the band- passed away!), the musicians raised up to express a new FINNTROLL chapter. It is as Epic and Bombastic as the previous one, full of Folk elements, with plenty of Heavy fast and atmospheric successions, all built up on a mighty melodious and rhythmicViking Black Metal. It is more dynamic and superficial as well than MOONSORROW. I'd say it is more melodious than ENSIFERUM, with dominant keyboard and magnificent vocals, featuring tracks almost like hymns. The new album also expresses an elegant imagery. All in all I could say we actually witness a masterpiece of the gender. Yet there are some negative points I would like to enumerate: ridiculous short tracks (and so is the album!) and musical linearity.
