The Dutch Folk/Viking Metal pagans present their latest opus to the masses: this new album is a demonstration of their commitment to success. The inventive artists have come up with a plethora of striking song ideas for this powerful thing - "Uit oude grond" is a totally enjoyable listening experience. Apart from the demanding guitar work, they have also added more heroically sung vocals and vocal harmonies. The lyrics are sung in Dutch, which fits the mood of the CD like a glove. But on this output, it’s the up-tempo passages that convince you of their passion, musical skill, and dedication to the cause. The outstanding drum work is impressive and extensive - and Variation with a V is also an important factor the band has taken care of.
