CD Reviews

Power Meatal from Italy
James B. Whitney | Minneapolis, MN. USA | 12/17/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Elvenking play power metal with a folk twist by including a violin as an integral part of their songs. They are competant musicians and their songs are well written and thoughtful. As one might surmise from the title, "the Scythe" deals with the many different opinions about death. Most of the tunes are upbeat and pretty standared 80's influenced old school heavy metal with the violin. If you like that sort of thing, this disk is for you.
Although I enjoy this record, I give it four rather than five stars since there are really no stand out tracks like Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" or Maiden's "Run to the Hills". But this is still a good album and if you are a power metal fanatic it is worth getting."

"I really loved the first 3 albums (as well as two tragedy poets) and have been following Elvenking for a while, but this album just enters the realms of NU-METAL and EMO a little too much for my liking.
This is not to say its all bad. There are still some really great moments and songs, such as Lost Hill of Memories and A Riddle of Stars.
still worth it, but at times a bit dissapointing.
but whatever two tragedy poets totally made up for it!
