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

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

Af Helvegum & Blodhevn are particularly awesome.

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

I kind of agree that this is the greatest folk metal album ever produced. I simply don't have the lifespan to explain everything right about it, it's just the peak of the genre in my opinion.
