Here it is: the album that began all folk metal. The album that was epic to such proportions that it is widely recognized today as a metal masterpiece. The album that inspired Finntroll to play pagan metal. The album of a dead man, who unfortunately passed away at the end of 2003, freezing to death in Reppastolen, Norway while walking home to his mountain cabin.

It's definitely a great album but I think 1184 is probably my favorite Windir album. Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet happens to be one of my favorite Windir tracks though.

How is 1184 rated higher than this? Arntor is one of the best viking block metal albums ever, up there with Vikingligr Veldi.

Fantastic album. Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet (The Blacksmith And The Troll Of Lundamyri) and Saknet (The Longing) are easily the best songs on here.

I don't think this word means what you think it means.

Yeah Windir are definitely not underrated. They get all of the recognition they deserve (which is tons and tons of recognition). Given that this album has an 8.7 after 240 votes I think we can safely confirm that

Saknet is so fucking great!

Edit: And I think this album is on par with 1184.
