2 stars I have really never understood the old ancient world's fascination for the old Viking world. It seems like the Italians & Co from the old Roman empire believe the old Asatru has the answers to all their ills. Financial meltdown and a sprained wrist ? Unleash Odin. Most of us up in the North would gladly swap minus twenty degrees with Sicily and Italy. And we frequently do ! The trade and tourism from Scandinavian countries is one of Italy's biggest income sources.

Asgard developed and expressed their fascination for these old Nordic beliefs a decade or two ago. Their music is dark and brooding neo prog with some hints towards the Italian occult music scene. Dark and brooding, but still pretty standard and not that interesting. The music is more standard rock than neo-prog. It is bereft of most ideas though.

I find the music here pretty dull and that even after weeks of listening to it. Not all the time, that is. I am not in a loony home. But on a more infrequent basis though to see if this album has the ability to mature. It does not. The vocals are on the less satisfying end of the scale. The music is standard rock and I have long time ago entered the bored out of my mind stage. It is OK, but not more.

2 stars
