Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (8 Votes)
Fifth album for Black messiah, whose last outing, 2009's First War of the World, I rather enjoyed. I mean, this band is far from original, and everything they do these days is essentially a pastiche of Ensiferum, but last time out they had a lot of energy and heaviness, but this one lacks a bit. It's hard to put my finger on, but overall I find this album too bouncy and happy-sounding, despite the omnipresent rasps. (Not that the rasps are any good, they really aren't.) I don't know, if you wanted Ensiferum's mid-period works like Iron to be folkier, then this may appear. There's also a similarity to early Folk bands like Hordak or Thyrfing, but the songwriting on this just isn't doing it for me.
