A quite enjoyable release for this style. You'll be trying to sing along to words you don't understand and fill you with the appropriate visions of vikings, pride in the Nordic areas. We're breaking no new ground here but it's really quite pleasurable - in doses. The album tends to start strong drag in the middle and pick up a bit more towards the end. I usually end up listening to either the first half or second half of the album. After a few full listens, I tend now just to revisit for bits and pieces. If this style is all you listen too, then you may be really particular about some of the weaker elements of the album. Overall enjoyable.
