Not the first band to be featured with the genre descriptor of folk-metal I yet have to understand why it seems only to be in Scandinavia that this has caught on, to any great extent, – as the combination of the two styles gives a powerful weapon to wield across the room that minds of marauding invaders met by stalwart defenders as the folkloric tapestry affords a rich weave in which the tale can unfold with the scything harshness of metal depicting the skirmishes – as it evidenced in the eight and two thirds minutes of The Garden of Earthly Delights taken from the forthcoming album.
