Does Devoured By The Oak tick every box on the ‘folk black metal’ checklist? Yep! Is that an issue? Nope!

I liked this more than I expected. I'm not sure I've heard a better blend of grandiose orchestration and calmer folk elements this year, but regardless, this stands out for me. The album builds up the loud moments nicely and even the softer moments are well thought out. Also, props for incorporating three languages into the album. It's a small thing but something I wish more bands would do.

Another great effort from them. The Last Rain was awesome, and this follows it up nicely.

This entire album is absolutely outstanding. The spectrum of musical composition is extremely impressive. The album totally enthralls the listening in a fantastic combination of aggressiveness and melody. Can't wait to see what this guy comes up with in the future.

Fantastic record. Sure it's a little long, but the addicting melodies and stellar performances keep you coming back. It's epic, grandiose, atmospheric, and beautiful. Spot-on production for the style.

This is quite possibly my favourite album in the genre since October Falls' A Collapse Of Faith in 2010.

The only band that can make me feel like Agalloch is still alive in some way, even if there are lots of differences between the two bands. Great work!

Nice folk, average metal. Not comparable to good metal like Havukruunu makes, for example.

This is a beautifully constucted album, and the nature themed atmospherics are really spot on, he has really stepped it up a notch with this one, and is crafting better material each album at a time. The thing I like most is the balance between the harsh dark sound, with the more gentle, beautifully crafted folk interludes. The production is also an improvement.

There is still a bit to go before creating an atmo black masterpiece, but this band certainly has potential.

Even though I find myself unable to find many memorable riffs or drums on this album, it is a beautiful work full of great moments, melodies and variations. As stated above, superb folk. The aumount of details and layers of sound make worth the revisit.
