So, the Faroese Vikings are docking again on our shores. In the last years, their raids have become slightly less exciting, more easily predictable and pretty much similar from one to the other. Did the Valkyries bring a breath of fresh air?

Can't claim to be all that fussed by the original songs, or at least the 3 or 4 I checked out, but the covers, especially Where Eagles Dare, are very good; the main guy has a cracking voice for this kinda thing and really shows it off on the covers

I'm the biggest Tyr fan. But i don't like the direction theyre going. Honestly i don't see how Metalstorm still classes them as "Folk Metal". Their album Land, was almost completely progressive. From Valkyria, i really enjoy Hel Hath no Fury, Nation, Cemetery Gates and Another Fallen Brother. I'm still a fan after hearing this album, but it was, for me the biggest letdown of the year. Even though i couldn't expect much after seeing the direction they were going with The Lay of Thrym. Also being the first album without Kari, you just know that it won't hold up to the others. I'm still hopeful though, for the next Heljareyga album
