I feel like the music could go one step further with a few more elements, it doesn’t quite feel as epic to me as something telling this kind of story maybe could. Having said that, I really enjoyed listening to this, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes melodeath, as well as a more stripped back metal sound.
There was such a hype on social media before this debut was released the for me it didn’t quite hit impossibly high standard. However, it is a damn good album!
One of the best possible ways to end my live music experiences of 2018. What a show!
This event is a new highlight on the festival calendar, and I already have tickets for next year to witness an even more spectacular line up! Skål!
A special double feature review of my experiences at the Heilung performance on 9th November 2018 at the Islington Assembly Hall in London, and of Wardruna’s performance at the Albert Hall in Manchester on 21st November 2018.
This album is prime for a power metal party and I can definitely imagine myself with all my power metal loving friends having a grand old time with some drinks seeing Grailknights live.
