Guest review by

Die Ewigen Steine is the first full-length album from the pioneers of German pagan metal, Menhir. It follows the release of Buchonia, their first EP earlier the same year. The record features 8 songs, clocking in at about 40 minutes. It is a solid pagan metal album, and a huge contrast to their EP Buchonia.

First of all, Die Ewigen Steine means "The Eternal Rock" in German, and as you might have guessed, all the lyrics are sung in German. It is clear that Menhir has changed it's style radically from their first release, introducing harsh vocals and aggressive riffs to their songs. The main concept, however, remains the same : epic pagan metal with a lot of atmosphere. And Die Ewigen Steine clearly shows a lot of epic atmosphere.
