This CD is awesome! There are so many catchy songs its crazy! I love the accordian and the violin.
Theres only two bad things I can think of. It gets kinda redundant, which is kinda weird cause theres a ton of variety in the beats, the vocals, the tunes of the accordian. I don’t know how to describe it, maybe they just use one key. . . Whatever it doesn’t matter. . . The second thing though is that they have a 21 minute song that sounds like its going to become AWESOME, but it falls flat at 5:18 when it has a drum sound for the remains 15 minutes and thats it! Thats just ridiculous, who the hell wants to listen to that??? Oh well. . .
There are a lot of things that are awesome about this album. I’ll just stream it all into a paragraph: One thing that is good is that all the songs have at least one interesting part, which is great, makes every song worth listening to. The vocals are pretty much the same in this album as in all the other albums, so no worse, which is good. I’d have to say that this CD is slower than their previous albums, buts thats just a generalization, and I actually like all the slow songs, which is amazing cause I love fast pace, intense, powerful intstrumentation. Theres plenty of more intense riffs, such as in Killing Iron, but I still think its a slower CD with a much more epic sound and all the songs flow together. The melody of each song is INCREDIBLY catchy, and I mean every song! even the stupid song that is 21 minutes long has a catchy first 5 minutes. . . I don’t really know how else to commend this. . . So I’ll leave it at that.
Favorite songs: Shall We Take a Turn, Under Icy Waters, with my absolute favorite song Yoik of the Wolf.
