The Protagonist's Album Of The Week: 2/19-2/26

From Afar


I've been on a frenzied Ensiferum kick after seeing them live last week (that concert review should be posted shortly), and their latest work has been sticking with me day to day. The title track itself is one of the most blistering examples of supremely good power/melo-death that I've ever heard. There's no mistaking the folksy instrumental sections, the scathing vocals, the heroic viking atmosphere, and the sublime speed: this album is Ensiferum at their best.
