Finland's folk metal scene is probably the world's most fertile one, spawning more and more bands with each passing year. Korpiklaani and Finntroll are no longer an isolated oddity in the Finnish metallic landscape, and top charters like Ensiferum and Moonsorrow are there to prove my point. And here comes yet another Finnish combo that can successfully throw accordion and fiddle into an electric guitar thunderstorm: Crimfall. One might expect a taste of déjà-vu from a female-fronted symphonic folk band, when country mates Battlelore and Turisas have already experimented similar combinations, not to mention the legendary Nightwish, or the fact that Trollhorn himself is a session member. But even though this kind of metal has been done and done again, Crimfall's debut As the Path Unfolds… manages to stand out as one of 2009's greatest folk metal releases.

  Nice debut. Sometimes, the vocals annoy me to death.
