Staff review by
Grand Magus's career has always been predicated on the recapitulation of longstanding metal tropes and, occasionally, the search for creative ways in which to achieve that. I'm typically unfazed by the band's obvious indebtedness to so many clichés, and I'd even call the stylistically pedestrian Triumph And Power my favorite Grand Magus work so far. Sword Songs follows similar formulas, though the album does introduce a few atypical elements from time to time.

Awesome, I will be brave and say this is bands best album, a but less doom more heavy but still it has epic touch and combination of song writing and catchy lyric parts sounds good, a bit 80's MTV style. Still good one Viking, home theme album
I will play this a lot
