This album is meant to be a hymn to Norway. Old Norwegian tales are resurrected and played now in a metallized version. Wongraven (more known as Satyr) founded this band because of his love for Norway and hunger for playing folk songs from his native country. Herr Nagell (more known as Fenriz) and little later Kari joined him and together they made a Viking metal album, which in its sound reminds me of two bands - Isengard and Otyg. These three projects have common mid-tempo drumming, an epic sound and vocals in the spirit of Norwegian folklore. Isengard is more black metal influenced, Otyg use more folk instruments. So if you want to know what Storm's "Nordavind" sounds like, listen to these two bands, mix their sounds in your mind and get rid of the black metal influence and folk instruments.

This album has some pretty nice tracks on it, Wongraven does great clean vocals. Norwegian is a great musical language.
