Sharpen your wooden spear and brush your bear pelt, epic heathen metal is making a comeback with the return of one of the most famous Finnish bands out there, Moonsorrow. It has been five years already since the dark sonic haunts of Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa so the release of Jumalten Aika does feel like a return in earnest. Meaning "The Age of Gods", their latest offering is a true rebirth of that larger-than-life pagan metal sound.

Went back to this for further listens, even if my interested for folk diminished considerably and barely check albums in the genre nowadays, but must say this is phenomenal. A reminder why this band is by far the best in this genre.
Not that many cheesy, "happy" epic-type of passages, the BM influence is as big as it gets for Moonsorrow. Developed a slight obsession for Mimisbrunn, with that furiously pounding outro. Dayum.

^Indeed. I love later Moonsorrow because of its bmness approach to folk metal.
I feel like a lot of people here judge them based on the earlier albums which were generic af, but from 2005 onwards Moonsorrow is one of my favs
