5.0 out of 5 stars Crown Retained. 25 Mar 2013
By Mr. R. Mayou VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have been following Finntroll and folk metal as a whole for near 10 years now and among all the bands that play this style I have always considered the trolls to be the best in terms of consistency and delivery. Finntroll have released some great albums over the years and their last effort, Nifelvind, I thought was excellent. Indeed the albums seem to have been improving one after another since the arrival of Vreth in 2006. This I wondered how it would be though. With their rivals either rapidly decreasing in quality or leaving folk metal altogether could the trolls deliver where others have failed these last few years?

The answer: in spades. I will go on record as saying this is probably Finntrolls best effort to date. The one thought I had with the last album was it didn't have enough of the trolls trademark sound and I'm glad to say that Humpaa is most definitely back. But like all bands they have evolved into perfecting both their folk and death/black sounds. The title track is a slight change as a first Finntroll track as its not purely atmospheric but this is not a bad thing at all as once the metal begins it doesn't relent. Expect to be blown away. The best way I would describe this albums for fans is to take the quality of Nedgang and multiply this to 11 tracks.

Blodsvept Finntrolls best? You bet your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Folk metal tom-foolery... 9 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have to agree with the other reviews to date and there's little to add to the comprehensive reviews given. So, rather than say what has gone before...a couple of questions that the CD answers:
1. What band would you play a stranger if you wanted to confuse the hell out of them?
2. Which band can reliably write dark/macabre music that makes you happy, smiley and want to dance a jig?
Finntroll have now delivered 6 very consistent albums of folk/black metal, probably best summed up as bonkers!!! This release does not stray from a twisty-turny path they've made their own. Get it \m/

5.0 out of 5 stars King of the Trolls 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another great album from this special band. For me, this album ticks all the boxes. Stunning artwork (once again by the band's guitarist, Skrymer); their unique blend of black and Folk Metal; and the way they manage to combine the often up- beat (for want of a better description) folk/ metal sound with lyrics frequently a little on the "darker" side (concerning such topics as nature, Finnish folklore and myths). In this way, the music does not always match the darker-themed lyrical content, adding a wonderfully creepy, Fairy- tale feel to their albums that I have never heard in other bands. This album reminds me of a few of their others, particularly Jaktens Tid, but is still new, still captivating and novel. This album is heavy, dark, fun and, like all their other releases, unique and worth buying. Get the others if and when you can! Long live Finntroll and Pagan Metal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a pleasure 2 April 2013
By Hedon
Format:Audio CD
After about a year away from metal with growly vocals, it was finally my beloved Finntroll which dragged me back into their hellish carnival of musical exccentricity. And I've never been happier

While some bands seem to pitter out after a few albums, Finntroll are far from running on fumes as the new baby is packed to its filthy guts with the infectious energy and off the wall madness the lads have showwn us since day one. As a long time fan of the band, Blodsvept strikes me as the kind of beautifully woven album that not only shows just how far Finntroll have come as masters of their craft, but should also please fans both old and new. Blodsvept stands atop the bands discography and possibly that of the folk metal genre by its seemingly effortless combination of the best parts of Jarktens Tid, Ur jordens djup and Nifelvind. The token folk melodies and bouncy madness of the bands formative years can be found, especially vibrant on the likes of Ett Folk Forbannat, the stunning Skogsdotter and the title tack. At the same time, the oppression and claustrophobic black metal crush of Ur Jordens Djup rears its ugly head on När Jättar Marschera, Skövlarens Död and Midvinterdraken to name a few, while the musical eccentricity that characterised Nifelvind runs the album throughout, manifesting itself in surreal yet fitting injections of jazz, rag time, big band, swing, banjos and brass trumpets. And, much like Nifelvind, the band once again meld and blend with sememless precision their complex and often bewildeing musical influnces. As such, fans of any of the bands albums should feel welcome and at home Blodsvept, yet also find a few new things stick their teeth into, such as the Middle Eastern sounding break on Haxbrygd.
