Elvenking seem to have fun in alternating great albums with releases which, without being Lulus, still disappoint a bit. I mean: after the great The Winter Wake came the pretty forgettable The Scythe, and the same happened for Two Tragedy Poets and its successor Red Silent Tides. This should be the turn of the great album, have the Italian folk metallers maintained this trend?

  Can it not suck like RST?

Please?

  Teemu Mäntysaari guitar solo?! I must hear this.
MétalNoir - 31.07.2012 at 22:48  
Rating: 9 I like everything they've done since The Winter Wake, even the abhorred The Scythe. This one lets you expect something darker than RST. I'm quite enthusiastic about this.
MR19K - 14.09.2012 at 09:05  
  Hm, I was expecting a bit more in the folkish veins since they generally have been marketing this album as "enough of the commercial shit, back to older aspects" but it's good. The last three songs (- Ophele) + Khanjar are some killer tracks imo.

Rating: 9 The best Elvenking album in a long time

Rating: 10 Finally, after two weak's albums , a true album of Elvenking! Very good, excellent choirs! Note 10!

Rating: 6 Maybe I am listening to a different album cause to me it's just VERY MEDIOCRE!
R'Vannith - 15.09.2012 at 17:07  
Rating: 5 To be honest I can barely find anything to like about this one either. Red Silent Tides sounded like they were picking things up, but this doesn't leave me impressed at all.

Rating: 9 The cover does really suck, but the album is close to a masterpiece. Back to their initial folky tunes.

Rating: 9 Very good album, way better than RST... and a very good surprise... I wasn't expecting a new release so soon!

Rating: 8 Well, this one is a surprise...

  Excellent! Finally Elvenking reminds us why we love them.

Their recent albums were fun and all but seriously... nothing compared to the songwriting and especially the performance skill and energy of the early classics. This one DOES compare

Rating: 7 After listening to this album I come here waiting to find really bad critics about it but for my surprise, I find the opposite. I promise I'll give it another try because I love Elvenking but so far the album has been REALLY boring...
mikeprado30 - 13.10.2012 at 01:03  
Rating: 9 For myself is excellent, but sadly I must to say it seems they never will return to the sound in their 3 first albums. But even though they are doing nice music.

  There is a song named Khanjar which means bodkin, I wonder why they have chosen that title !

Dunno why they chose the name but it's a pretty good song, the best on this album I think. It's an instrumental btw.

now that I'm listening to the song on youtube it's got strong oriental tone.Perhaps that's the reason, and yeah regardless of the genre I liked it but I would love to know which of them chose that title.

Sounds like it yeah, and it's a bit different to the sort of folk they usually go for. Guess that's why it's a bonus. A pleasant surprise anyway.

Rating: 7 There were some memorable moments for sure. it's obviously a development after RST and Scythe... still not 100% convinced. looking forward to their further work to make my mind up.
