Ur Jordens Djup

Rated 4.11/5 (82.22%) (18 Votes)

Where did it all go wrong!? Hot on the heels of the awesome Nattfödd Finntroll deliver their first major disappointment in the 2007 release Ur Jordens Djup. Extremely lacking in the magic every Finntroll release had up until now, we find Finntroll at their most formulaic, boring and dull – inspiring yawns and droopy eyes on my behalf. It's amazing how much could go wrong in just three years. Only a few tracks are even remotely good such as "Korpens Saga" or the damn fine "Slagbroder" - easily the finest track on the album. The rest ends up as drab and unentertaining, simply becoming background noise. Hardcore fans of the band can surely find enjoyment here but to everyone else this is one to avoid. Really there's nothing else left to say about this vastly uninspiring album which leaves me with little to no hope for their next release. Disappointing to say the least

Standout Tracks: "Korpens Saga" and "Slagbroder".
