Staff review by
Target audience: People that like their metal highly melodic, but not all too flowery. Will help if you don't mind Viking-themed lyrics and a lot of soloing.

These are tough times for fans of flashy, fast and melodic metal with harsh vocals and a touch of northern darkness (though, seeing how narrow this genre description is, I would be surprised if it were any other way). Occasionally, bands like Euphoreon or some folkier entities like Brymir come along, but don't leave much of a trace. Wintersun's mastermind is obviously trying to break Axl Rose's record in making fans wait for quite a long time for a new album, Children Of Bodom and Norther haven't exactly thrilled the masses with their new releases, and purely folk bands such as Ensiferum or Equilibrium don't quite fit. Fall Of Eden hope to take over this scene - will they make it? With this album, not quite, but maybe with subsequent ones they shall.
