Which idiot said folk metal was on the decline?
Why isn't there a cd release of this, anyway?

Roots is seriously one of the best songs I've heard. The way it ends takes my breath away every damn time I hear it.

Not sure why this is rater lower than Aura. This exceeds it in every way.

For me, Roots and Aura lie on same level except Aura's second half was bit repetitive. Whereas in Aura, the sound of Saor was introduced. So, people will go for this no matter how good second album is or would have shaped.

No wonder Aura gallops huge amount of ballots in MS Awards '14.

I feel like, even though this album is great, is the worst one. In both "Aura" and "Guardians" there are these big climatic moments (usually with folk instruments) that lend itself to the style of Saor. I got into Saor because I heard "Aura" and was blown away. I feel like "Roots" almost gets there, and there are moments when I feel like it's going to just explode, but it never does. This album is great, but I feel like Saor really finds it's voice with "Aura" and continues it with "Guardians". Favorite track: A Highland Lament
