Oahhh, what a lovely surprise! Maybe it is the best Finnish Melodic Viking Black Metal album, placed somewhere at the same level with last FINNTROLL's! The epic dimension reminds me of BATHORY and the warlike magnificent choirs are impressive! The entire album is dominated by a Nordic folk traditional aura yet melancholic and nostalgic as well, Heavy passages are in great resonance with the atmospheric ones while the bombastic keyboard surrounds the whole sound. It would be a shame to characterize just in a few words the new sound, that is why I simplify by saying that "Of Strength And Honour" (which should be the translation of the album's title) indicates quite a precious Metal jewel that should not miss anyone's collection! I recommend this album deep from my heart! www.moonsorrow.cjb.net .
