Guest review by
Yet another masterpiece from Skyclad is about to be reviewed. I don't really think that I need to introduce the band (again) but for those that don't know, they are probably the inventors of folk-metal, using a violin along with classic metal instruments. They were innovative and have a sound of their own, having released only quality albums (being hard enough even for their fans to pick out the best of them).
