Great song! This time a little more power metal leaning, but that is one of the things I love about this band. At their core they're folk/metal fusion, but they shake up the formula and bend a little in different directions each album. After the trio of mostly straight folk metal albums (Winter Wake being my favorite), Scythe was a little heavier/flirting with melodeath, Caravan, acoustic, RS Tides, a little more modern and classic rock influences, Era, perhaps a little more rootsy, but I think it kind of encapsulated all their leanings. By this track, the next one sounds like another winner.

A lot of people have issues with Damnagoras' voice, but I think it's one of things that makes them not sound like every other folk or power metal band. He's got enough of the chops and range you want in a power metal singer, but then he's got his own signature sound that sometime delves into Robert Smith of the Cure territory, sometimes has a punk rock twinge, and on Era you could hear a little Jeff Keith from Tesla. Great passion and versatility overall, and they would not be as distinctive without him IMO.

Criminally under-recognized and under-appreciated for a band with such consistently strong songwriting. It's a shame, as I think they're a band that fans of mainstream acts like Dropkick Murphys (though I'm personally not a fan of DM) or even Flogging Molly would appreciate---if they ever heard them.

Really hope they can get on a US tour some time. Would love to see them live.
