Far from flawless, but still probably the best folk metal album of the last few months.

They've truly done it this time. This album is going to be an all-time classic for me.

Really solid release.

Only flaw - songs are bit lengthy. They should've cropped and finalize into decent length.

NICE ONE, A good one, but some parts was weird, sometimes I think there are to much music to talk, I dunno where music revivers from magazine sfind worlds to describe , well maybe that's why many reviews are so boring?

After the 1st listen, I think it's better than the debut.

Every album from them is better than the last. Love Rae's vocals on Dead of Winter too!

I think it's one of the albums that make you float in a whole new dimension.. Every track is a bewitching place and every note is a drop from a river of awesomeness.

as a fan of them, overrating sadly. Looks like the have taken the safe route and forget about the freshness of their folkish mariner flavour they have carried with Wanderer on the Continent of Saplings. Neither production is great: there's a good mix on folk/acoustic parts (very clean), but utterly flat and raw black metal part...
I don't know why they choose this and focus more on folk/acoustic and split it from the black parts, meanwhile WotCoS was well balanced in every aspect: the results is a dull album with a lot of potential wasted...

Well, may be your choice of words there.

But, when it comes to the aspect of album i don't think any of your words were right.

Dull album? It doesn't look from any side either. Very good record with extraneous length.

Potential wasted? Again, they stuck to what they're good at and record sounds very good. As i said, the only issue i found here is they streched "unnecessarily". They would've justified context of material to such a extent that it looks "complete package". I still feel they dragged upon a bit.

Nobody will tell you except you yourself. Their music relies heavily on a contrast. Sometimes it flows a bit usual and monotonous and you think "well, they run out of ideas" and then they just explode. Try "Dead of Winter" (but from the start to the end) as the best example.

Love it, some of the ambient sections drag on too long but it's no big deal. Also, the lyrics are just great.

I remember the debut being slightly better - will have to visit it again.
