It’s a little bit out of my normal taste, but I had a lot of fun listening to it, and it brought back memories of some of the music I used to listen to in the late 90’s and early 00’s, when you had bands that used to sing of lost love and have some real emotion and feel behind the music.

Aexylium – Tales From This Land

This debut from Aexylium sounds absolutely fantastic. It is a really, really good first album for the band, and I hope to hear more from them in the future. The album is happy, jiggy and definitely worthy of the title of folk metal. I expect big things from this Italian band in the future, and you should definitely go and show them your support!
