Trollech have been around for over ten years, but despite this I have never heard one of their albums before. This fits pretty solidly in the middle of the 'Pagan Metal' road, being basically Black Metal with some folky overtones. The first few minutes of this album will tend to make you want to turn it off, as vocalist Asura peeps in falsetto in a manner that can only be described as ridiculous. On later tracks he mostly keeps down in a more normal register, but all too often he returns to this silly tweeting and it ruins any claim this album might have made to seriousness. The riffs on here are not bad, but they are faceless and without any individual character, grinding along to mash out songs that are like 9 minutes long for no damned reason. By the end the only real point of interest are the parts where the vocals imitate a cartoon character and make this entertainingly stupid, rather than just tedious.
