Rating: 8 The guest musicians really makes this album worth the while. Love the layers of multiple vocals... Underrated piece of folk metal.

Rating: 10 One of the very best albums Folk metal has to offer I think.

Rating: 7 With all due respect for this band, in my honest opinion Eluveitie sounds better than Ásmegin. No offence.
