Staff review by

After seven years of silence, medieval veterans Enid and their mastermind Martin Wiese return to enthrall the scene with another magnum opus, Munsalvaesche. They've had quite an adventurous course throughout the years; from the beautiful and Summoning-driven Nachtgedanken to one step ahead, Abschiedsreigen, and from the more melodic Seelenspiegel to its more avant-garde form, Gradwanderer. Munsalvaesche is the natural continuation of the latest two, but at the same time a more progressive attempt for the sound of the band. A very good first impression has to be the drowning-in-shades-of-scarlet cover artwork which lends a more to-the-point idea concerning the lyrical concept which is based on Wolfram von Eschenbach's medieval novel, Parzival.

Rating: 8 It's not very black. More like symphonic folk with the occasional dash of blackness. Still real good.
