Well, I reviewed this band's 2004 debut back in the day, and so they sent me this one, a repressing of their 2008 follow-up Perun. This band bills themselves as - no lie - "Pagan Straight-Edge National Socialist", which I have to say is pretty fucking stupid. You're going to be Pagan and then go for straight-edge and take all the fun out of it? How they can fit being Nazis on top of that I have no idea.

Anyway, on to the music. This is pretty standard folk metal, with polka-esque melodies, a lot of flutes added in, and much more clean vocals than anything else this time out. Not too far removed from other bands of this type, and without enough songwriting chops to really set them apart. Back when their debut came out this kind of thing was much more novel, and there was a lot of room for innovation, but this is just kind of sad. The guitar sound is weak, there's not enough metal to carry this past how dull a lot of the arrangements are, and the songs all sound a lot alike. Not horrible if you like this kind of thing, but not anything good either.
