Review


Partly female sung, partly growled Celtic and Folk Metal here... ahem, not really my cup of coffee, even though I must admit this type of stuff attracts me quite a bit whenever I am in the right mood.

Achanterez (which is Breton for Enchantress in English) is already Fferyllt's third album, and it's hard to deny there's a lot of work that went into this release. With the number of guest musicians and a variety of different instruments (cello, violin, viola, Irish bagpipe, Irish flute and so on) used on the album, at times Fferyllt have managed to create a pretty soundtrack-ish vibe, as if they had followed the script of a movie, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's material.

Achanterez is first and foremost an ambitiously written Celtic/Folk Metal album where some captivating, well-built and strong atmospheres do play a big role and there's also just about enough heaviness. But like I already mentioned earlier, this stuff isn't for everyone. Recommended company for dark and cold winter nights, accompanied by a horn full of bitter Krigsmjöd.
