  • First of I should say that Ensiferum’s “Iron” and their self-titled album are among the best albums in my record collection. After hearing that their lead vocalist and guitarist Jari had left to start his own band (Wintersun, which you should check out; stunning work!), I was really upset. Hearing their first EP after losing Jari, I notice that he was more than just a vocalist to the band. Their new vocalist isnt bad, in fact he is pretty good, its just that the band seems to have lost some of its edge. Although to be frank it would be unfair to be so harsh since only the first two tracks are new material (the rest are either previously unreleased tracks or covers).
    So I would recommend this EP to any fan of Ensiferum, or folk metal in gerenal, but dont expect it to be anything stellar like their previous releases.
