I was rather disappointed with the latest Moonsorrow album, so imagine how pleased I was to find that this other Finnish band has produced an album in that very style, and just as good as any of Moonsorrow's classic works. I do not want to do this band the disservice of calling them imitators, as there is too much songwriting excellence going on here for that, but really the similarity is so close, you could call this album the logical follow-up to Kivenkantaja and not be full of shit.

That said, there are some amazing works here, like the expansive, epic riffs of "As In Hunger, So In Demise", the pounding and melodic "Grief Unsung", and the absolutely crushing "Drums of Black Death" – which is a better Moonsorrow song than Moonsorrow have produced in over a decade. If you like big, pounding, epic Pagan Metal, then this is a must-have.
