Jewelcased edition!

Sensational debut of ex-Ensiferum singer/guitarist Jari Mäenpää. Finnish Metal at its best. Invidious, hymnic and embossed. This will hit the spot for anyone who likes a mixture of Dissection, Moonsorrow, Children Of Bodom and Ensiferum.

This album is very easy to review, I've played it hundreds of times over the years since it's release in 2004.

Ex Ensiferum singer/guitarist, Jari Mäenpää stared a new project playing all the instruments himself, except the drums.

What you get is almost the perfect mix of black, death, symphonic, power and even a bit of folk metal thrown in.

But what gives this album it's unique sound, is the Fender Telecaster that Jari uses on many of the songs.
Now this guitar is rarely seen or heard in metal. It's more common appearance in country music or probably made famous by Bruce Springsteen as his main guitar for many years.

Eight songs, all are killer and pack a mean punch, full of many layers that require repeated listening to fully appreciate.

In my top 5 albums of all times and an essential addition to any metalhead's collection.
