Staff review by
Call it Folk Metal, call it Mittelalter Metal, everyone knows In Extremo and knows what are they doing, they 're one of top contenders of the so called "Medieval Metal" category, and this, their seventh album tries to prove that they're not giving the throne to anyone.

This is In Extremo most controversial album, since a lot of die hard fans didn't like it, and why is that? The formula is basically the same as always, powerful German lyrics (although In Extremo also sings in Spanish and Latin) with medieval melodies and instruments like bagpipes, harps among others. I must say that this Folk trend is starting to get on my nerves, maybe some years ago they were original, but not anymore, because more and more bands are trying to do the same, many lack the inspiration that In Extremo have, but some do, leaving this band as a precursor of the genre, but not an innovator.
