A lot more Folkish than the previous efforts, I dig it.

Saw these guys on tour with Kylesa and they were actually the best part of the night! Completely blew me away, and seemingly most of the club. We were all chanting for one more when they finished.

They played several of the songs from this record and I've been eager to hear the rest of it (and... all of their albums). What an awesome, awesome band.

Yeah, another quality album. Reeks of Sabbath and Jethro Tull.

Actually I just realised I rated the wrong album. It was Living with the Ancient I just listened to. Oh well, I'm sure this is great too.

Well, I dont know criterions for boring people's bored ears. But by special I mean something more creative with less of monotony.
As an example in this category(Hard Rock Rooted), Graveyard's " Hisingen Blues " was special for me and my ears...

Monotony is used for describing this record while it contains variety of sounds, for example how many similar metal albums use flute, or look how many times their guitar sounds switch from different sounding cleans to overdrive , even the vocalist tries a kind of different dynamics in her vocals.

This band reminds me a bit of Inkubus Sukkubus. But, while latest Inkubus records don't sound too interesting, I find The Eldritch Dark more intriguing and captivating.
Favourite tracks: Goodbye Gemini, Ballad of the Weird Sisters, The Eldritch Dark.
