It's awesome. Way better than Nifelvind. The use off jazzy brass gives it a weird feeling, but it stays far from Trollfest-territory. Blodsvept is more focused, more direct and more powerful. Every song has a major hook that makes it instantly recognisable. It's the same Finntroll, yet slightly different. Amazing album.

Just Listened through it myself and i couldn't agree more

Been a massive fan of Finntroll for years and as a fan, I'm extremely pleased

I unlike some here have thoroughly enjoyed Nifelvind ... there's imo so much diversity in it and one catchy song after another ... I've just picked up my copy of Blodsvept and it sounds promising ... I'll decide after a couple of spins if i like it more or less than Nifelvind

I'm a long time fan of Finntroll and yet again, to my great delight, they fail to dissapoint. I really liked Nifelvind but so far, I'd say that Blodsvept is even better.

The album is available on Spotify and I tell you, it's fucking awesome ! Each song is better than the other. I guess it's the best folk metal album I've ever heard...

Really good and fun! I feel it's a mix between Jaktens tid, Ur jordens djup and Nifelvind. It's maybe even their most solid release!

When I heard the first song they released (Blodsvept) I thought it sounded a bit bland but after hearing the album I can tell you now that in its entirety, it's far from bland. It's cheesy as fuck but it wouldn't be Finntroll without that element.

I guess its the best album since Ur Jordens Djup, i will always miss the old finntroll style though, but this is great and blodsvept is a hell of a song

I'm not a huge fan of folk metal generally but this album is just so catchy and fun that I can't help but to have a strong urge of drinking lots of beer and hopping around like a lunatic when listening to it.

Awesome album, very catchy. The song "När Jättar Marschera" is stuck on my head. Always liked brass instruments in Metal like in Solefald and Sigh albuns

To me this sounds like a throwback to their Nattfodd-era stuff. Not sure how I feel about that...

This is the first album i've bought by Finntroll, I was really impressed. For me some of the best folk metal i've heard in a while.. i'll be sure to check some of the older stuff out.

The last couple of albums since Vreth joined the line-up let me renew my love for the band I once felt after listening to "Midnattens Widunder" and "Jaktens Tid". "Blodsvept" follows the same direction and shows that the band clearly is not lacking in inspiration and energy. Those 40+ minutes has run so fast that I was left dumbfounded and craving more.

Overall a good album -- but it lacks the 'pop' some of their previous releases had.
