  • Album: Ravnenes Saga
  • Year: 2007
  • Label: NAPALM
  • Artist: 
  • Denmark

Another trendy band following the Folk Viking Metal approach. This time the sextet originates in Denmark and after solely two demos released tempestuously in a year, they've signed with Napalm. I haven't been at all impressed by this alert Folk Metal rhythm, and I cannot see any single reason for me to be, as there are plenty of bands alike. The aggressive voice reminds me of the first AMORPHIS album, the guitars don't excel in any way, there is a modest battery, a pale bass, and the sole accent is given by those flashing inspiration by playing certain traditional instruments alike the bodhran, mandolin or whistles. Music has an explosive rhythm, saturated in martial echoes, but that's all about it. Well, the fans of Traditional Metal (Folk, Pagan, Viking) are on their way to enjoy a promising debut.
