After the sophomore opus of Moonsorrow "Voimasta Ja Kunniasta " in 2001, the band recorded Kivenkantaja (Stonebearer) in 2003. Well, I've bought it in early 2004, I chose it among thousands of albums, maybe the title called out to me, but whatever is the reason, it's perfectly done with its influences featuring extravagant, bombastic, heathen metal.

Rating: 9 Great folk with BM elements. I'm not amazed by it though.

Rating: 9 Amazing album that brings you back to those times you have lost, as if you relived them. Words cannot describe the beauty that this album transpires.

Rating: 9 I probably slightly prefer Varjoina... personally, but this album is pretty damn awesome. Alongside this, Varjoina... Voimasta..., and more, these guys really do lead the Nordic folk metal pack by some distance. Every song has something excellent about it, but Rauniolla is fantastic
