Review by hdfisch
3 stars 3,5 stars really!

Prog or not prog, who really cares? One thing is pretty sure and that is the fact that GARMANA (which means hell's dog in English) is an excellent newer band coming from Sweden (once again) blending traditional and modern rock/electronic music in a brilliant way. They're using some original medieval instruments like hurdy-gurdy or lute and according to a report I read they must be great on stage with savage looking musicians. The songs on this album here are quite mixed and versatile and range from gentle and slow ballads to more hard rocking ones. The female singer has a very pleasant, a bit innocent and maiden voice. I don't understand any Swedish language but as far as I heard the lyrics are about the usual topics in medieval traditional music like werewolves, abducted virgins,murder,love and so on.

The prog purists might stay away but I'd highly recommend this album to any lover of ethnic fusion and Scandinavian folk music with an open mind!
