After the sophomore opus of Moonsorrow "Voimasta Ja Kunniasta " in 2001, the band recorded Kivenkantaja (Stonebearer) in 2003. Well, I've bought it in early 2004, I chose it among thousands of albums, maybe the title called out to me, but whatever is the reason, it's perfectly done with its influences featuring extravagant, bombastic, heathen metal.

Rating: 9 Great folk with BM elements. I'm not amazed by it though.

Rating: 9 Amazing album that brings you back to those times you have lost, as if you relived them. Words cannot describe the beauty that this album transpires.
