Debut album on its way, this should be good. I'll have to check out the new song tomorrow

Have to check that one out too. Their demo material is pretty swell.

It sounds horrible. Believe me.

Well sounds pretty good, a pleasant suprise. I am curious about their debut!
Janne - 25.08.2008 at 23:46  
I'm very curious. I have their EP and a demo, and... these weren't very good but promising they can develop.

Not bad. Sounds like Turisas with a female vocalist. Good melodies but they definitely need more of the heavy vocals.

I agree, the album was simply horrible. It was like any of the countless other "fantasy" folk/power metal bands lacking catchiness or anything distinctive. Well, that's not entirely true. They have a distinctive side, which is the horrible off-key female howling that makes you want to punch babies.

Oh yeah and I also lol'd at the cover art. Looks like some questionable fashion show.
