Typical early Vintersorg, with the folkloric thoughts reminiscent of Otyg, but trying his ass off to be progressive.

This album has the last remnants of Folk metal, mixed with the Progressive feeling that became predominant from Cosmic Genesis to on.

Interesting, but nothing great.

member of the true crusade against old school heavy metal, early 80s thrash, NWOBHM, traditional doom, first and second wave black metal, old school death metal, US power metal, 70s prog rock and atmospheric doomsludgestoner. o/

Apart from "I Den Trolska Dalens Hjärta", this is a very average release.

Not as catchy as Vintersorg's previous work but I still like this album very much. Besides "Svältvinter" is my favourite Vintersorg song ever.
