So what do you all think of this band?
i really like how this type of vocals are being used in a powermetal, i also really enjoy how the guitars are used here,
i especially like the album Chapters From A Vale Forlorn


please share your opinions with me

Totally agreed, the singer has one of the cleanest clean voices I have ever heard. It's just majestic to listen too.

Mathias Blad's vocals are excellent. Extremely clean, and puts just the right touch and inflection on everything. His vocals are what initially drew me to Falconer. The only other vocalist I know of that I can compare him to is Roy Khan of Kamelot.

Also, MAthias has the "folk" element tht makes falconer Unique.

Do you like Northwind? because if you do then theres no reason for you to not like the latest one. I actually think their latest album is their strongest....most melodic, most twisting and turning passages to date making it an extremely enjoyable listen. I guess its all down to taste, but maybe you should give it another try (if you are a fan of them in general) if you dont like any Falconer then maybe its just not for you...

So...i have listened to "Among Beggars And Thieves" once more today...well - first and last songs are good, if not even great...but the rest somehow blended together in my ears...

Among Beggars and Thieves really reminds me of the first album, with fast catchy foly songs, and with nice mellow ballads as well. Northwind was pretty cool, but I really like teh new one more.

I've been listening to these guys a bit lately, as I am getting more into the power metal scene (thanks to Iced Earth and Demons & Wizards), and I intend to order a CD. Should I order the eponymous Falconer, or this most recent album?

Their debut (self-titled) is my favourite, but their second album (chapters from a vale forlorn) and their newest are both very good as well

Falconer, the album, is pretty good. A Quest For The Crown's my favorite track off it.

I love Mathias Blad, but Falconer peaked with their first two albums. Northwind was good in parts, but the newer one (except A Beggar Hero) is incredibly bland.

Carnival Of Disgust is an awesome song, from the last album. but other than that, I agree.

I really find that hard to understand. Since Blad's return on the last 2 albums they have blossomed into something incredible. I find it hard to believe how the generic first couple of albums are considered better than the 2 most recent albums. How can the proggy influences be considered bland yet the mundane/straightforward albums of earlier be in such high regard? "Chapters" is a good album, it has some killer songs but in general I feel its very slow and tedious compared to the amazing riffing and solos featured on their later albums.

I own all their albums and listened the debut album recently again and its just severely tedious, the songwriting is horribly predictable and the music in general dont feature any twists/turns like Northwing or Among Beggars and Thieves.

I realise its a matter of taste but I honestly dont understand why people prefer those mediocre albums above the latter.

I heard only the last album but it was incredibly bland and boring, indeed.
And I utterly dislike vocals. They're boring to death.

You know what...you are like a genie, always popping up whenever the word "falconer" is uttered, especially by me. Of course you dislike it, youve said it countless times that you listen almost exclusively to black metal. So again, why the hell are you even commenting on this? Its pointless.....its like me harping on about how shit all doom metal is because I hardly listen to it - absolutely pointless.

So what if you dislike "flowermetal"? We get it...you like 99% of the older albums MOST bands bring out. You prefer Weinerhal's efforts with Mithotyn as opposed to Falconer, we get it. Now get over it, seriously. Your perpetual comments about bands in genres you DONT LIKE are becoming bland and boring.

The fact that you have nothing good to say about an entire genre, let alone a specific band within that genre, renders the value of your opinion null and void, because we all know what your opinion is before you even said anything. You might as well copy/paste what you said into every "flowermetal" thread on this site.

Oh my God! you just spoke out against the Great Lord_Reiner! His ego is surely bleeding now. And if he bleeds we can Kill Him! MY GOD THERE IS HOPE!

You my friend shall go down in metal storm history as the defender of this amazing band (IMO) and so many others.

Really you did not like there self titled release? Personally I thought it was there most impactfull and there most solid. Northwind was also IMO one of those vary Special albums you don't came across to often where as soon as you listen to it your automatically blown away by pure talent.

You guys can put your silly comments up your ass, for all I care. I don't give a fuck at other people's opinions anyway.
You idiots don't even realize that I like to play with the childish over-sensitivity typical of Euroflowermetal fans from time to time.
The worst aspect of Powermetal is its fanbase.

Seriously dude...suck on it. My reaction is purely based on how annoying you are, saying the same shit over and over - like a little dog biting at the heels. At least in the future mix up your attack, we always hear the same droning from you. I know you apparently dont give a fuck about what anyone else says, but if you did youd realise I too dont approve of generic powermetal and theres many shitty bands in the genre. So your "playing" is completely wasted on me.

Id have this reaction with you regardless of the type of thread youre in, regardless of the type of metal you are dissing - because the extent to which you go saying the same things over and over are bordering on obsessive and it annoys me because you are boring me. You will find you are one of the very few people on this forum I have this attitude with, and its with good reason.

At least do something interesting...perhaps you wanna watch Lord of the Rings again, I see you like that.

To be honest with you, after I posted the comment I had an extensive listen of the album and for some reason it clicked with me better lol I think in my mind I had the first and third albums swapped around haha But yea the first one is solid indeed.
