I listened to the vids you posted for this album:

I found the music enchanting and the growling vocals are almost another instrument in the music (going by the videos) so I now have the album to evaluate with several listens..........

I will let you know what I think later :)

Caledonia seems to be the album that fans like........how is this album in your opinion Harkat?




NOTE: The album covers are excellent!

Oh gosh Magic, I have been entranced by each and every song on each and every album.

Caledonia is a particularly good album by the band, it would be their best album but the other albums follow close behind it. Each song is really well done, you can hear the effort that has gone into it, plenty of idea's have gone into this album.
I thoroughly enjoy the contrast between songs and that some songs are not in English, some songs are folk, metal and/or melodeath.
The instruments are divine and the vocals are generally clean with growls every now and then.

I won't give this album a rating yet but I would place it in the upper spectrum of a 10 star rating.

Can't say much beats a couple guys dressed up with some folk body paint! :grinthumb
I absolutely love how these guys combine folk and metal, clean vocals and growls.
Having the music flow between folk and metal ... delightful!

Centuries of fighting - Decades of war lay behind us.
Countless were the men we defeated.
But now, my brothers, we have to face an
Enemy more valiant than all the ones before.
The right hand of Rome, the hammer of hispana
The IXth Legion...

A strong gale is blowin' from north
I can see them strike the sails

A strong gale as they run ashore
A deadly alliance, a grim pact of war

Clamouring for battle and
Nordic tunes fill the air
Hail to the northern wolves
Our last hope in times of despair

Don't fear tomorrow nor the end
For time will testify
Our honour and our strength
Who was valiant and who has failed

Fall to your knees and pray
A last word to infinity for your beloved ones
You will leave them to weep and worry
And if time asks: “Oh where have you gone”

No one will ever know...
Only the standing Stones
No one will ever know...
Where they have gone

Dark and pale lies the land
In the end truth or legend no one knows
Only the standing stones
I hear the sounds still echo

Through plains and hills
Through hearts of men
For thousand years we stand
We breathe and soar
Where the wild winds roar

This stuff is right down my alley. I am surprised that I haven't checked these guys out before. Either way, i'll be checking them out from here on. The vocals are magical.

Hide the door
There's no place beyond
Who will follow
Until all is gone

Along the floor
Of carpet flames
There lies the truth
The silent name of all

Cold eyes staring
Into my innermost fears
Shadows glaring
Into sweet oblivion
A place so black
With shades of white

A stronghold where I can hide
Where all reins of life
- fall from my grasp -
This clarion call makes me shiver in fear
- it seals my curse -

The candle fades
In a lapse of light
It flickers bright
Denying the darkness

Will it ever change?

Weak and frail
Like wilting memories
We cry for the first light
And silently die in fear

Cold eyes staring
Into my innermost fears
Shadows glaring
Into sweet oblivion
A place so black
With shades of white

Where all reins of life
- fall from my grasp -
This clarion call makes me shiver in fear

The candle fades
In a lapse of light
It flickers bright
Denying the darkness
