Skyclad. Does this band really need an introduction? I think not. If you are here, reading this review, I assume you are at least a bit of a folk metal fan. And if that's the case, you are obligated to know Skyclad. This is the band which started it all, the first folk metal band, the fathers. And while owing a lot to them for what they got started, one must not forget that they are of course masters of what they do themselves. In the beginning, their music sounded more like thrash metal but with a few folk elements here and there (I am sure that sounded really weird back during the early 90's). Over time, Skyclad turned into more of a folk band. This album is from that era, where their music was at it's peak folk-wise.
