Unsheathe the blade and taste the blood stemming from it because Whispered are back with their newest studio record. The Finnish power metal clan's third full-length album titled Metsutan - Songs of the Void isn't quite on the same level as the explosive and memorable Shogunate Macabre, but it's still a competently enjoyable offering that can stand proud on the samurai's table. Many of the tracks on display have the ability to make you pull out a hug pillow and use atomic breath on it, and these numbers can also captivate even the most unsung waifus. Metsutan offers that delicious cheese we've come to anticipate from this band now; almost like one is experiencing a group who gets thrills from going on about Japanese legends with the subtlety of a Kamehameha. Whether tapping into the inner weeaboo is necessary or not, Whispered's latest addition to their discography is a more than above-average slab of power metal with melodeath and Eastern influences. Angel recommends: "Strike!," "Exile of the Floating World," "Sakura Omen," "Tsukiakari," and "Bloodred Shores of Enoshima".
