Staff review by
I heard a single from Kindred Spirits before hearing the entire album and was very excited. New extreme folk metal that sounded promising! Turns out that by hearing that song I'd actually heard the entire album, which is 53 minutes of the same (great) song.

Waylander's fourth album could instead be referred to as embracing a style and doing it well. Sure, one doesn't need tons of variety to make a good album. But there's a fine line between that and nearing monotony.
