Massive Epic Album,
This review is from: Njord (digipak) (Audio CD)
I enjoyed Vinland Saga but Njord is something else again, probably the best power-metal release of 2009.
A couple of other reviews describe the songs in detail but in summary this is a fine piece of music. Very orchestral and with overtones of Clannad and James Horner in the mix. To describe it just as "metal" is really doing this grand work a dis-service, it's an aural rock-metal symphony that the great classical composers would be proud of.
I've listened through the album twice now and it grows each time. There is some "light" growling from Mr. Krull but it's not intrusive cookie monster stuff and blends with the other themes in the music.
I thoroughly recommend this fine album.
