Rating: 9 This is going to be good. They played one song live already and it was awesome!

Rating: 9 It's awesome. Way better than Nifelvind. The use off jazzy brass gives it a weird feeling, but it stays far from Trollfest-territory. Blodsvept is more focused, more direct and more powerful. Every song has a major hook that makes it instantly recognisable. It's the same Finntroll, yet slightly different. Amazing album.

Just Listened through it myself and i couldn't agree more

Been a massive fan of Finntroll for years and as a fan, I'm extremely pleased

Rating: 9 I unlike some here have thoroughly enjoyed Nifelvind ... there's imo so much diversity in it and one catchy song after another ... I've just picked up my copy of Blodsvept and it sounds promising ... I'll decide after a couple of spins if i like it more or less than Nifelvind
FreddeSwede - 22.03.2013 at 22:47  
Rating: 9 I'm a long time fan of Finntroll and yet again, to my great delight, they fail to dissapoint. I really liked Nifelvind but so far, I'd say that Blodsvept is even better.

Rating: 9 Maaaaan I like the song Mordminnen so much, I want to make love to it!!
tibosax - 24.03.2013 at 16:06  
  The album is available on Spotify and I tell you, it's fucking awesome ! Each song is better than the other. I guess it's the best folk metal album I've ever heard...

Rating: 10 The best album of finntroll
moe5512 - 25.03.2013 at 13:54  
Rating: 9 Really good and fun! I feel it's a mix between Jaktens tid, Ur jordens djup and Nifelvind. It's maybe even their most solid release!
Until the End - 25.03.2013 at 15:18  
Rating: 8 When I heard the first song they released (Blodsvept) I thought it sounded a bit bland but after hearing the album I can tell you now that in its entirety, it's far from bland. It's cheesy as fuck but it wouldn't be Finntroll without that element.
svartberger - 27.03.2013 at 23:44  
Rating: 9 I guess its the best album since Ur Jordens Djup, i will always miss the old finntroll style though, but this is great and blodsvept is a hell of a song
Draugen - 28.03.2013 at 14:47  
Rating: 7 I'm not a huge fan of folk metal generally but this album is just so catchy and fun that I can't help but to have a strong urge of drinking lots of beer and hopping around like a lunatic when listening to it.

Rating: 9 Awesome album, very catchy. The song "När Jättar Marschera" is stuck on my head. Always liked brass instruments in Metal like in Solefald and Sigh albuns
quisableed - 30.03.2013 at 00:40  
  Definitely the best album of finntroll, i didn't expect an album like this but it blow my mind at the first song
svartberger - 30.03.2013 at 01:19  
Rating: 9 Amazing album the whole thing is what folk metal is about
Doc Godin - 01.04.2013 at 04:31  
Rating: 7 To me this sounds like a throwback to their Nattfodd-era stuff. Not sure how I feel about that...
Windrider - 08.04.2013 at 16:24  
Rating: 9 Really awesome, even better than their last, this album just got it all...
Pétur - 08.04.2013 at 22:08  
  The jazz influence works out surprisingly well.
svartberger - 10.04.2013 at 00:47  
Rating: 9 Ok, after some listenings i have to say this is their best work to date, i ve listened to this and natfodd and i took away any doubts, its just their best one.
Sword_Chant - 01.06.2013 at 12:03  
Rating: 9 This is the first album i've bought by Finntroll, I was really impressed. For me some of the best folk metal i've heard in a while.. i'll be sure to check some of the older stuff out.

Rating: 9 The last couple of albums since Vreth joined the line-up let me renew my love for the band I once felt after listening to "Midnattens Widunder" and "Jaktens Tid". "Blodsvept" follows the same direction and shows that the band clearly is not lacking in inspiration and energy. Those 40+ minutes has run so fast that I was left dumbfounded and craving more.
ProgVet - 29.06.2013 at 01:20  
Rating: 7 Overall a good album -- but it lacks the 'pop' some of their previous releases had.
svartberger - 24.08.2013 at 21:12  
Rating: 9 Cant understand how this album has the same rating as Nifelvind is far superior IMO...

  Outstanding release. Totally fun and engaging.
