3 stars This was branded as classic genre defining album in most media outlets. So I have been told...

Anyway....... Tyr went back to the very vibrant song traditions on Faroe Island and based this album around it. The German power metal influences was ditched. So was the Iron Maiden and the indie rock worshipping. Elements of Fruupp's and Thin Lizzy's more folky celtic pieces was dragged in and digested. The end product is therefore a lot better than the first two albums.

The hymn and songs here is still draped in metal. There are some guitar solos present too. But this effort is much more song based than melody based. The good vocalist works very hard for his inclusion in Tyr, you can say. The result is a good album...... with one minor flaw. The flaw is the lack of any outstanding tracks. The two previous albums had at least one excellent song each. This one has none. But then again, this album has no weaknesses and no particular highlights. This is sixty minutes of folk metal with some celtic influenses baked into this pie. This is the kind of pies I like.

3.25 stars
