Indeed it is Prog Rock’s lack of willingness to be acceptable that could well be its greatest weapon. This album proves all of that. Just hit play, set phasers to wibble, cut free the shackles of acceptability and enjoy yourself.
So what if this isn’t a brain crushingly heavy album? I reckon if you like a bit of pagan or folk-based metal then you’ll find something to love on here.
