1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible. No Real Talent., 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: By The Light Of The Northern Star (Audio CD)
The music isn't really that great; too-thrashy Metal with little real skill or conviction at times. And i can't understand why anyone would apparently wish the truly horrific death by crucifiction on another human being, religious convictions notwithstanding. Unless, of course, it was popular and judged likely to aid sales.
This sort of stuff gives other Metal bands a bad name as they are sometimes tarred with the same brush. I can recommend the following: Wardruna, Vali, Eluveitie, Percival, Leaves'Eyes

EDIT: I had forgotten to mention that this lot claim to be dismayed and devastated by the supposed destruction of the Norse Mythology-based faith of their Homeland, the Faeroe Isles, by the coming of Christianity, when in fact the Norsemen/Vikings did not arrive there until 300 years after the Christians.

Best thing to do to save yourself this issue in future is listen to an Album on Youtube first. If you like it on there, then purchase the CD to support the band/artist. People like music with Themes, and if it's not your taste, then that doesn't mean the music is bad, it just means you don't like it.

Thank you for your comment. As it happens, I did first encounter this band courtesy of youtube and made a purchase based on that experience but it seems that I had already heard the "best of" this outfit and the album as a whole was of lesser quality throughout, regardless of taste, and I speak with five decades of experience here. 99% of the music I enjoy is thematic, though I made no mention of the leaning toward a neo-pagan attitude here - not uncommon today among metal bands which, if not actually de rigeur or even authentic, then is certainly a shrewd move business-wise none-the-less! Indeed, whether I'm listening to Wagner or Sibelius, Hawkwind or Faun, NWOBHM or Leaves' Eyes, and not forgetting Sava, Wardruna, Vali, Eluveitie or Percival, I can enjoy well-crafted and intelligent music by composers/artistes/bands which share similar leanings but which do not feel the need to disseminate hatred and violence to further their own ends (Sales!!!), whatever the purported reason, which is here based on a wealth of historical inaccuracy regarding the supposed destruction of their faith (Norse Mythology they claim) by the coming of Christianity, when in fact the Faroe Islands had been settled by Christians some 300 years before the Norsemen/Vikings arrived!!!
