Here it is: the album that began all folk metal. The album that was epic to such proportions that it is widely recognized today as a metal masterpiece. The album that inspired Finntroll to play pagan metal. The album of a dead man, who unfortunately passed away at the end of 2003, freezing to death in Reppastolen, Norway while walking home to his mountain cabin.

Rating: 8 It's definitely a great album but I think 1184 is probably my favorite Windir album. Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet happens to be one of my favorite Windir tracks though.

  Geez, I had forgotten how incredibly awesome this album (and Windir) is...

Rating: 10 How is 1184 rated higher than this? Arntor is one of the best viking block metal albums ever, up there with Vikingligr Veldi.

Rating: 9 Fantastic album. Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet (The Blacksmith And The Troll Of Lundamyri) and Saknet (The Longing) are easily the best songs on here.
