Top Customer Reviews

Format: Audio CD
The other reviews focus around the changing of singers - I hadn't heard of Ensiferum until 4 weeks ago when my nephew introduced me to Victory Songs, an album he really liked.

This album is absolutely outstanding and exactly what I want from my music. It is well arranged and the production quality and balance is incredible for an unknown band (To me and quite a high proportion of metal fans in the UK I suspect).

Most importantly it is fun, exciting and makes me feel great when I listen to it. There are parts you can sing/scream/bellow along to while you're driving.

I can't compare new singers to old but I do know that the singing on this album is excellent with mostly Children of Bodom esque screeching/snarling during the verses and a combination of melodic vocals and grunts/screams (EPIC) choruses.
The musicians are all clearly very talented and I can find no fault from the melodies which are technically excellent- there certainly are no 'filler tracks' and each song deserves its place on the album.

The record starts with a traditional instrumental to build the tension and excitement with drum rolls which culminates into a scream of fury and the start of one the best songs on the album 'Blood is the Price of Glory'. A full throttle opener with heavy riffs, a raging chorus and a fast beat. I hope to one day see a gig opened with this song as I'm sure the crowd would go mad for it.
The pace continues with 'Deathbringers from the Sky' and 'Ahti'. Both have catchy choruses - you can tell these guys have probably been influenced by Judas Priest with the Rob Halford esque screams which are pulled off with aplomb.
Track 5 - 'One More Magic Potion' is my favourite song from the album.

Unlike other reviewers I'm not going to go on about the change of vocalist and which one I think is better- the bottom line is that this is a great album, not a single filler track on it! There doesn't seem to be a huge fanbase of viking/epic/folk metal, if you do know about it already, chances are you already know how great this band are, but if you are new to the genre, this would be a decent place to start learning

This is the underrated third full album from Finnish viking metallers Ensiferum. But then you probably know that already. A lot of people were very suspicious of Victory Songs when it first appeared but it has grown to be my favourite from Ensiferum (which isn't to say their other three albums aren't also fantastic). All four albums are distinct from each other, from the stripped down Ensiferum to the symphonic excesses of From Afar, but in my view Victory Songs has the most consistent and coherent sound. Individual tracks may not be as distinctive as some in the other offerings (e.g. Token of Time, Iron etc) but as a body-of-work this is an album with ebbs and flows which takes you on a journey through ancient battlefields.

I wasn't sure whether to give the 4 or 3, lets say its 3.5

I really didn't expect Ensiferum to come up with the goods on this one after suberb vocalist and guitar-god Jari left, only to be replaced by the guy from kings of mundane melodeath Norther. But i was really surprised that, musically, this is top-notch, full on epic folk metal from the Ensiferum we all know and love... its just that vocally this is a dissapointment
So lets get it over with first, Petri does his best to scream and gnarl his way through the album, but he has a much weaker voice then Jari. But the music and guitars are powerful enough to carry the songs through. the real problem is the absence of Jari's soaring clean vocals and 'one man choirs'. While the others do their best, the clean vocals sound flat and uninspired. Jari was also the main solo player in the band, and his sweep picking and masterful tapping are sorely missed (the few solo's on here are pretty bad)

But on the other hand this is a fantastically written and performed cd. Ensiferum have gone hell for leather with the folk influences (bag pipes anyone?) while keeping the metal intact. 'Blood is the price of Glory' thunders out after a breif intro and kicks off with a bang proving that, muically and instrumentally speaking, the band are still on high form. Very much in the vein of previous works, it has that wonderful combination of thrashing rythm and soaring leads over the top that Ensiferum do so well and when combined with the anthemic shout along chorus its a real winner. 'Death bringer from the Sky' is another fave with a bit more of an 80s power metal feel and some full on cheesy melodic choruses. I just love it when it all breaks down for some Viking 'whoa whoa' chants; very atmospheric.
