Terast mis hangund me hinge 10218

As I was incredibly impressed by the first offering I had ever heard from this band (Hiiekoda, see a previous review), I wanted to get my teeth into the second CD I had received by them.

The two years between the two releases has let the band grow, and improve in every department, which is pretty scary, as I honestly didn't think that such a good band could improve by so much.

The release manages to keep the traditional Folk-Metal sound that I loved so much about Hiiekoda, but has made their sound much more epic and much more powerful, each song is like a war chant.

Musically this band remain impressive, with a rich selection of instruments in their arsenal, although this time they take more of a back seat while some excellent riffing and drum work begins to show itself.

As previously mentioned, this release is more epic than the last, and this is shown of in the vocals more than anywhere else, in almost every song Markus sounds like he is shouting to the Gods themselves in a fit of rage during battle, it is truly impressive to listen to.

I am very reluctant to give an album a perfect 10, for that to happen it would have to be an album that I would pick above anything else I have ever heard, and while it is impressive, and certainly my favourite Folk-Metal release I have to give this promising Estonia release a 9.75/10 I would seriously recommend this release to any fans of Folk-Metal or Power Metal. This is truly a masterpiece.
