Very very very good release. Fantastic.

Step up from last two releases, great soundtracks with heavy riffing, bomb-y bass and crushing drumming with obvious folk instruments placed in proper directions. Vocals improved a heavy ton.

It could be one of the best folk releases of '14. If this wins an award, it'll be truly deserving.
