Staff review by
This is quite impressive I must say, I wasn't expecting such a varied album with so many elements to grab. Heralding The Fireblade is an awesome album with opposite songs distributed all over the place, they share in common one thing, the epic feel that only Falkenbach can give to them. This record includes all the elements you loved from the previous 3 albums from Falkenbach, acoustic guitars, moody keyboards, clean singing, group chanting, blackened screams, rapid riffing, etc.

Good album but not without its flaws. The clean vocals are really weak and the first three tracks are especially very disappointing, but the rest of the album more than makes up for this. 'Walkiesjar' and 'Heralder' are especially very good because of the narrative work and folk instrumentation.

Bad English
Good album but somehow I think he overwrites him self, more you listen less fun you see, maybe one man band is failure, real band would be more creative?
