Review by b_olariu
3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

Lumks is one of the unfairly unnoticed bands from Norway , with 3 albums in their pockets so far. Their debut is named Åsmund Frægdegjevar released in 2003. Musicaly speaking they combine in good measure progressive metal of the heavier kind with traditional norwegian folk themes, all done with taste. Imagine something like Amorphis in their first years with nice mellotron added in the mix, even some moog is present. Just to be check the instrumental opening Det Var Irlands Kongi Bold and then the second pieces of the album Ormin Lange are simply said excellent, very nice arrangements. Aswell the duo female vocals add a colorful atmosphere. The metal passages are very well combined with folk parts, some acustical passages are aswell present here and there and a plus is they sung in their native tongue, norwegian , who is a plus for me, it gives a special overall dark scandinavian feel. The lyrics aswell is taken and adapted from a famous norwegian poet of XIX century. A nice album, a debut that for some resons is not so popular among fans of heavier kind of prog metal, 3.5 stars for sure.
