The composition is wonderful, Jo and Melissa’s vocals are absolutely flawless and incredible to listen to, and live they put on a magnificent performance. I will definitely be taking another opportunity to see them live in the future, and I would suggest that if symphonic metal is your kind of thing, that you should do the same.
I do appreciate the skill and thought that has gone into the music, and that there will be a lot of people who will really enjoy this. I really do look forward to seeing Ancient Bards live at Power Metal Quest Fest.
Band: WolfhordeAlbum: Hounds of PerditionRelease Date: 11th January 2018 Wolfhorde are a band that have been around for a while, but until I saw news
I am definitely going to try and catch them at Wacken Winter Nights, as from what I can hear the live performance is likely to evoke more feeling, and of course, you can’t have a jig pit while sitting on a bus listening to this album on the way to work…
Despite the fact the album doesn’t really flow well for me personally, the actual composition of the individual tracks is really good. If a future full-length release is in the works, I would like to see some more consistent themes in the instrumentals.

An acquaintance of mine (also in Sköll) asked me if I’d be kind enough to have a listen to his other band’s (Accursed Years) single
I really, really want to like this album. I really do. I’ve heard great things about Kamelot and on paper they sound like exactly my kind of band, but this albun really didn’t meet my expectations. I can tell the music itself is really well written and thought out, but at times it almost seems like it’s too well thought out at times.
This album is a great mix of power, folk and symphonic metal, with heavy Ensiferum influences. If you enjoy these genres, Adavant is a band you definitely want to be keeping track of in the future!
If you love the folk melodies in metal, this is a pure, stripped down version and it is every bit as beautiful you would expect.
