Hey guys, have you heard of CLONECIRCLE? Don’t worry, until this album came across my desk neither had I. I was first struck by the awesome artwork on the digipack that is actually credited to the bands Vocalist/Bassist/ Keyboarder Martin Hellgren. The artwork theme follows throughout the lyrics booklet and really sets a scene that totally suits the music that it holds inside.
Elvenking has never been an easy band to predict, as almost all their albums to date have surprised listeners with either new elements added, certain elements reduced, or even with one key member being absent for one particular album. Their debut Heathenreel was a fresh and masterful take on power/folk metal
There really isn’t anything negative I can say about this release. It’s such an enjoyable listen. It’s refreshing, it’s different. It’s just downright cool! I like it more every time I listen to it. And that’s saying a lot considering I really liked it the first time I listened to it. The songs are well written and the guitar work is brilliant from beginning to end
