Sure the opener has it's rustic instrumental charm to keep you interested. Then you get to trk. 2 and they're off and all over the place! In this case, that's a very good thing - shades of classic rock, trad. and black metal weave throughout with a brilliant clear voice in tow. Repeat listens are now mandatory. Only way this gets better, is this ends up on vinyl with a kick-ass gatefold of majestic art to match.
Favorite track: 10,000 Sword Salute.
