no seriously this isn't really catchy, it's just really plodding and formulaic and the lyrics were like manowar bad, i'm pretty sure that this is going to be one of the worst tracks though

if not, oh no

I need to agree that for an Ensiferum song, it was a bit dull. It wasn't bad, but it didn't contain that epicness I look for when I listen to Ensiferum.

For years i ask myself if i would want to live in either middle-age Japan or England and I have yet to come to a true 100% answer. England seems more straight up bad-ass and brutal but japan just seems more....mystical with some bad-ass in there ofc.

When I was a child playing pretend with my now murdered brother RIP (but back in the day he was a happy child, a bucket full of life and enthusiasm), we would sing along to songs such as this and live in a world of fantasy and adventure. But now that I think back on it, I realize how much of a homosexual I was. Still, I will never forget the smile on my brother's face and the sweat on his brow.

The second half of this song is awesome, the chorus is epic as hell and the solo rules. Yeah the beginning is kind of plodding and the riff isn't that great but I still enjoyed this a lot.

Instead of arguing we should concentrate on what's really important: Ensiferum managed to find two hot females who are both from Finland and into metal. I mean, no disrespect, but I've been to Finland plenty and while I thoroughly like the country, there could/should definitely be more eye candy.

Petri's vox still suck and some of the riffs are kinda boring but I still like it. The Celestial Bond
tracks are the best so far.

To be honest I think Ensiferum are sounding less and less like Ensiferum with each album. They are
changing their sound.

especially the last half which sounds like a direct rip of sadness and hate

I think that bonus track is the only time I've heard pinch harmonics in an Ensiferum song.

This is looking at like a 3.

When I say one hit wonders I'm referring to individual tracks, not the album as a whole; as the term most commonly suggests.
