5.0 out of 5 stars Epic and Invigorating July 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Sick album. The boys slay. Karen Gilligan soothes like healing water or rears a feminine fury in An Bean Sidhe, the title track, and The Voyage of Bran. The music is a well-balanced mix between black metal and pastoral Celtic* detours, more emphasis on the former. The lyrics are for the most part intelligent and intelligible, with nothing lost in the way of ferocity. All in all great songwriting and bigger, better production make this a treasure of Irish* metal.

*Professional research maintains that Ireland is not a truly Celtic nation. That is, while elements of the culture may have spread to Ireland at one time or another, it is doubtful whether Celtic blood does in fact stream in the modern Irish. I am unaware of the band's stance on this issue, but it must be said that their lyrics are genuine and insightful when it comes to history and lore.

1.0 out of 5 stars Keith Fay gets mad, the music suffers August 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Folk metal is a genre of music that today has a lot of significant problems. The genre began with the comical and pub rock inspired works of Skyclad and continued moreso with groups like Subway to Sally and In Extremo. But nowadays this rancorous and jolly mood has become a serious crutch. As Finntroll and Ensiferum have given folk metal a now unbreakable bridge to 'pagan/viking' metal, the genre has now taken on a teary-eyed anthemnic emotion to the inherent revelry of folk music and turned it into one emotive output... heroic masculine battle music. Fits very well with traditional metal culture. The end result is more often this upbeat paganfest party metal that also doubles as a outlet for nationalistic pride. On one side is bands like Korpiklaani and the god awful Alestorm providing horrible party music that has the evocative quality of a Viking fart. Then on the other side (even more awful) you have a slew of German artist who have turned the genre into a conservative culture warcry under the banner of nationalist pagan metal. Along with them are Russian and Ukrainian canned folk metal bands that openly couch their music in white-power racist ideals. All this obsession with traditional values and nationalism couching secret right-wing ideals gets its worst with Menhir singing ultra emotional, epic agonizing songs of pagan warrior fathers love for their strong young sons in almost operatic 'viking chants' (whatever the hell that is). Both the nationalist and the beerparty artists frankly produce little that has to do with folk music at all. While in itself that is not horribly awful, it becomes really trite when hundreds of artist begin doing this and their great mass of fans still call it all folk metal, when again, there is little to nothing to do with folk aside from imagery.
