Well, in your defense, most of the heavier parts bored me the first listen through. I think the only heavy song that really impressed me was the second track (if you count the intro). The acoustic and other soft parts of the album were fantastic, but the actual "metal" parts were underwhelming to my ears.

Technically the second track is only one part of a 20 minute song. Same musical themes are all over the four parts, except part III. This album is an extremely rewarding listen thanks to how effortlessly just a few central themes work across the whole thing.

Wow. That is all.

Edit: On second thoughts, I'm just going to point out that this style would sit well with fans of Opeth, Wintersun, and Xanthochroid - and any folk connoisseur for that matter.

Also, not sure if any other Insomnium fan noticed, but the starting tune on the title track on this album is identical to "The Gale" by aforementioned band. Not a complaint by any means

Damn this is a great discovery, a lil bit Opeth, a lil bit Wintersun, and probably a lil bit Moonsorrow. I can't imagine how I missed their first album.

Falling in love with this one. It's full but never bloated in production, rich with catchy melodies and has a great atmosphere to boot.
