The same Wolfheart you love, now with a sharper edge. Album number six showcases more of their trademark high-quality melodic death metal with the intensity of thrash metal.

Really love the 2 singles and I really think that Vagelis was a good addition for the band look forward for this release pretty sure gonna be a great release.

Edit: Like it a lot with 3 listens 8.5/10 for me.

Meh. no memorable melodies or moments. they changed their sound after Tyhjyys album and put some black metal (like blast beats and fast riffs) in their music that I think doesn't fit their style. at least Constellation of the Black Light has good moments and melodies but these last 2 albums doesn't impressed me at all. They are best at creating melancholic melodic death imo.

This is a band I've not really paid much attention too until now, but this album impresses me quite a lot. The songwriting is great, and I like both the clean and harsh vocal performances, and it definitely has some very strong melodic moments that make this album memorable, for me anyway.

I'm sort of getting an Amorphis vibe from this, along with some Amon Amarth style riffing, maybe it's worth digging into the rest of their discography, if this album is anything to go by, I think I will like their previous stuff too.

"Skyforger", "Knell", and "Cold Flame" are the three tracks that seem to stand out most for me.

Hmm, I think the reality is quite the opposite of what you say really. The Black Metal influences were here since the begining, even more on the first album Winterborn. And the album where they are the weakest is the previous one. I'm glad they are back with it now.

And I wouldn't even discuss wether it fits their style or not because .. It IS their style! And has always been.

It's nothing new from Tuomas but for the first time in years the songwriting is really good and the album is not 40 mins. Knell might very well be the best song he has ever written, even better than Everlasting Fall.

I have to admit I never heard about them but I am glad that, curtesy of Metalstorm, the band was introduced to me. I was growing up in ages past when melodeath was born (times when DT was releasing splits with Desultory... 30 years ago... I'm old) so this type of music is close to me. So far opening song is, in my opinion, the best one but this will evolve with time I am sure of that

How many bands what sounds same he can run same time, only value is its comes from Finland and north where metal values are higher and less good album can be a bit better, otherwise I dont see anything special.

I do like it but it kinda bums me out. Maybe it'll grow on me.
Solid effort nonetheless...

Great album for me!! Always thought it was my least favorites Tuomas band compare to Black Sun Aeon Before the Dawn and Routasielu!! But this one is more melodic and "diversified" than his previous albums and having 2 guests help it as well. Knell and Desolated land are my fav song in it!!

Man, I thought that was Tuomas doing the deep vocals on 'Cold Flame'. Now I know it is Karl Sanders. Great album, one of their best.
