9Drown (US)
Subaqueous


A two-parter, but the whole thing is beautiful to listen to in one sitting.
10The Ruins Of Beverast / Almyrkvi
Almyrkvi / The Ruins Of Beverast (Split)


Every song as good as each other. Two of the best songs in both bands' career if I'm honest. For fans of earlier RotB however, you should love "Hunters". Fans of latter day RotB will greatly enjoy "The Grand Nebula Pulse".
11Thy Catafalque
Naiv


"Tsitsushka", "Embersólyom" and "Veto"
12Paysage d'Hiver
Im Wald


"Im Winterwald", "Uber den Baumen" and "Stimmen im Wald".

14Arstidir Lifsins
Saga á tveim tungum II: Eigi fjǫll né firðir


The whole album is a real journey, meant to be listened to in one visit if I'm honest. That monumental 17-minute closer however brings it all together.

"Ilmestys", "Uusi Teknokratia" and "Taivaan Portti".

20Winterfylleth

I couldn't choose any favourite tracks here, they're all brilliant to be honest.
