So here it is, Finntroll's sophomore effort, considered by many to be Finntroll's greatest work to date, from a band which always has a special place in my heart. There later album "Nattfodd" along with Opeth's "Still Life" are the albums that got me accustomed to harsh vocals, which in turn opened the doors for alot of musical enjoyment in the extreme metal side of things.

Rating: 8 This album is a great example of Finntroll's trademark sound, and although some songs aren't necessary to be on the album, there is a lot of diverse musicianship on offer here.

Rating: 9 If I'd have to choose my absolute favourite folk metal album I think this album would have the biggest chance to win. It has nice folk melodies, some pretty wicked riffs, pounding rhythm section and troll-like vocals of Katla.

Rating: 10 The best album of Fintroll hands down. Tracks 3 and 4 are absolutely incredible.

  A bit heavier as I thought, now I am interested to listen it, language is one factor, nice artwork
