4.0 excellentTheManMachine | March 7th 19

Wish it wasn't as copious on the voiceless patches, plus I do tend to get wary at the implementation of precious piano and predictable posi post-y buildups in my black metal; or most anything for that matter. But its overall mixture of ferocity+epic is difficult to deny -- lush and all-enveloping, massive and roaring, violin+flute straight outta the magic forest, acoustic mattering, windswept mountain-demon growls getting along with softies. The folksy input in particular is pretty top notch, and when this is firing on all cylinders it's truly a beautiful thing. Then for a finale it takes up near 5 out of near 39 total minutes dwelling on crashing waves and elegant bleh.

Bump

4.0 excellentBedex | March 1st 19

This is a brilliant record that mixes black metal with elements of folk and out-of-the-ordinary instruments like violin or flute. The songs are very dynamic and there aren't five minutes in the album that are the same This will require multiple listens to definitely make my mind on it, but it is definitely a cool ride. 4.1

Bump

3.5 greatDDDeftoneDDD | February 21st 19

Brilliant execution, production and multi instrumental piece of celtic bm. Fave Track - Monadh

Bump

4.5 superbSuzyC | February 9th 19

This would be a blazing 5.0 if it weren't 20 minutes shorter than Guardians.

Bump

4.5 superbcloakanddagger | February 7th 19

Saor's best album to date, and a contender for black metal AOTY.

Bump

4.5 superbReviewc0re | February 6th 19

The shorter length really lets this album hit home where it needs to, plus the production really is superb.

Bump

4.5 superbPanzerchrist | February 5th 19

It does nothing different at all from the three albums past. The production is marginally better.
