Guest review by

You must be thinking I'm crazy, don't you? I don't blame you, really. I mean, who else would drive, at 2 am, fifteen miles away from home in the freezing cold, sit under an old oak tree with just a hooded shirt, and listen to Falkenbach while being drenched in rain like a drowning rat?

Would you like to know why I did that? Why I felt the need to do such an outrageous thing? It's simple. I gazed for about 3 minutes at Tiurida's artwork. It's not really a "Picassian" work, not by any stretch, but it's a freaking mind twister. Within a few minutes, I had realized that if I really wanted to do this record justice, if I really wanted to carve out an honest review for Falkenbach's latest release, I had to feel it, not just listen to it. And what better way to feel a folk metal album than to listen to it alone, in the rain, at 2 am somewhere around nothing?

How the hell does this have a rating?

wondered the same question
patrickmetal12 - 24.12.2010 at 08:21  
  Maybe... its going to be the best album ever

it automatically came with the 10 rating \m/
.:Nataras:. - 16.01.2011 at 10:23  
Rating: 8 \m/ this is good album... but it's similar "2003 - Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty"
a little melo
more folky

i want more aggression... just like "2005 - Heralding - The Fireblade"
but this is another good album by Falkenbach, with very good atmosphere...
Exzentriker - 26.01.2011 at 22:54  
  I dont like the album.........
Sounds like another band is ripping off Falkenbach from the of nefna tysvar tyr album, and if they were not doing it well.
I really miss the epicness on this album , too few and bad Black metal parts, cheap folk metal parts :this was on the whole a disappointment.:nono:
elven - 28.01.2011 at 22:33  
Rating: 8 Its a good album, not their best... something is missing in my opinion.. the epicness, the atmosphere are still there, but in an inferior level..
Necrodamus - 30.01.2011 at 03:44  
  Gonna have to check this one out soon
Galar - 01.02.2011 at 03:52  
Rating: 10 Fuck anyone who give this album less than a 8.
Exzentriker - 08.02.2011 at 01:17  
  Indeed , but I also think In flames is a poor attempt to copy Where Blood will soon be shed , the other track is ok but still nothing if you consider the six 6 years he worked on the songs;
if the next album is as bad as this one I am going to burn my Falkenbach Shirt.................

Rating: 8 As always - good music from Falkenbach. But this time there is lack of some "claws" or "fire" in it. Good epic, nice melodies but still no claws... I could give it 7. From the other side when you listen it at the evening or night (silence, black window, dark outside...) it shows its other face: best music for relax Than I can give it even 9. I assume that how you see this album is very related to your current mood.

Rating: 8 So far I love this album. I've never been overwhelmed by Falkenbach before - this is their first album to actually hold my attention. Lovely! Good balance of everything.

I'm still underwhelmed. This album is very boring, it's not good when the best songs on an album are the instrumentals
Susan - 12.02.2011 at 02:22  
Rating: 8 ^ Oh I love the instrumentals! But if you're hoping for big vocal performances then you totally have a point.
Music4TheSpirit - 29.03.2011 at 06:33  
  Well i will have to check Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty as it's being compared to it, specially as bad rip off, but as i was saying on falkenbach thread i like this album, i find Where His Raven Fly... and Tanfana to be the more interesting on the album.
Bolverk - 30.04.2011 at 02:45  
  I just bought it yesterdar... its such a good album but is far to be the best one.
musicalkaratekid - 27.03.2012 at 01:18  
Rating: 8 I don't know why a lot of people find this album underwhelming, because although none of the songs are perhaps as immediately striking as on past records, the one thing that has always made Falkenbach the excellent band it is, is here in spades. That one thing is consistency. Consistency that never lets up until the very last minute. The album may take a while to actually hook you, but once it does, it really is worthwhile. '...Where his Ravens Fly...' and 'Tanfana' are beautifully executed.
Boxcar Willy - 19.05.2012 at 02:02  
  I didn't really enjoy this.
Ellrohir - 21.08.2012 at 13:16  
  This is simply great album...cant really understand what should be wrong about it?
BlueMobius - 21.08.2012 at 14:55  
  I was really unimpressed with this album. It bored me and didn't keep me interested like the band's past releases.
NocturnalStalker - 29.11.2013 at 18:18  
Rating: 8 I like this album, even if it's not the best Falkenbach record so far. Maybe it's just that I haven't listened to the band's music for a long time, but I enjoyed both the traditional epic tracks and instrumental tracks.

Rating: 8 Not sure why this is rated so much lower than the others.
