Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Voimasta Ja Kunniasta is the debut album from Moonsorrow. Moonsorrow is a folk/ Viking metal band from Finland. The album was released in 2001.

The music on Voimasta Ja Kunniasta is pretty basic mid paced heavy metal with lots of nordic ethnic folk influences. The vocals are excellent IMO. Ville Seponpoika Sorvali has a great aggressive rasp ( black metal style). The best thing is his Infernal screams which there is a good example of in the begining of Sankarihauta but they appear now and again to my great joy. The lyrics are in their native finnish language so I don´t know what they are about, but my guess would be the Viking culture. Besides the raspy vocals from Ville Seponpoika Sorvali there are also some grand choir sections which at times remind me of Rhapsody and at times give Voimasta Ja Kunniasta a power metal feel. I can´t help also thinking about Amorphis when I listen to the album. There is something in the folky parts that reminds me of Tales From the Thousand Lakes or Elegy from that particular band.

The musicianship is great on this album. It´s not unique and most of what´s played has been heard before a thousand times but sometimes it´s not what you play but the way you play it that matters. Note the mouth harp which appears in some songs. A really fun feature.

The production is good.

Moonsorrow has been a pleasant surprise for me even though I can´t claim to be a big fan of this genre. I´ll definitely be checking out the rest of their discography though. I think 3 stars are well deserved for this album. It´s not excellent by any means but certainly very good. Fans of folky/ viking metal will probably love this one.

4 stars 8/10

"Voimasta" is a perfectly balanced interconnection between the Viking muscles and the guiding hand of Nordic Folklore.

The (possibly) greatest Finnish band of all time, Moonsorrow, in 2001 were able to release two albums: the first one was "Suden Uni", the second one, "Voimasta Ja Kunniasta". The latter is possibly the most mature one and the first album by the band that is immensely successful in terms of quality: although maybe not the most recognized and famous release of these Folk Metallers, it is definitely one that opened the path to all of the following Moonsorrow albums and all the other bands that followed them.

Folk Metal's basics are all down here in an incredibly precise way: here we have the epic feel and melodies of the rough guitars, the Black Metal shrieks, the additional, folkloristic instrumentation (flutes and accordion mostly), the atmospheric synths, and the straddling rhythms. So many Folk Metal bands have used only a portion of these characteristics, but most of the time, the best result will occur if all of these elements are properly incorporated. The songs themselves are structured in a very thought-provoking way, because of the shifting tempos and passages ( from a folkloristic one to a harsh, black Metal burst, enlightened moments later by elaborate, acoustic instrumentation).

The spirit of all Moonsorrow albums is here found in great abundance: the Northern lands, the Vikings, the battles, the Gods. In "Voimasta Ja Kunniasta" there seems to be a more frequent and specific theme of battles, plunders of villages, pride and honor of warriors. "Aurinko Ja Kuu" is however the odd one: its an interesting description of a man who roams in the woods without ever encountering men, and that sleeps in the beds of bears. In 50 minutes of length, "Voimasta" manages to stay quite consistent, and at the same time, the songs have enough variation one another to have a fluent flow. Nearly each one of these six songs can be considered a highlight: "Sankarihauta" and "Kylan Paasa" are generally more muscular, raw, and harsh songs, which still do not lack of intelligence. "Sankaritarina" however, the thirteen minute closer, has a great riff that echoes throughout the entire song and still manages to have the most thought-provoking and elaborate structure here. The remaining two songs, "Auriko Ja Kuu" and "Hiidenpelto" are great as well, incorporating more folkish elements yet without losing the grit.

"Voimasta Ja Kunniasta" can be considered essential listening not only for Moonsorrow lovers but also for Folk Metal fans; an album that uses all of the canons and brings them up at a quality that not many other bands of the genre can do.
