Flames Of The Free has a pretty fantastic chorus, which is sort of the name of the game for this band. Shadow Of The Swastika is a pretty good song. It’s fun, but just doesn’t hold up to some of the band’s other works. Take Your Tyrant is odd in that I prefer the verse to the chorus, but it’s a cool song overall. Evening Star is a great song that is a bit structurally different. It’s basically a song that builds up to its climax, and it works amazingly. Love this track.

Hall Of Freedom has amazing vocal lines in it and is a great song for that reason. Fields Of The Fallen has a pretty fantastic chorus, and the rest of the song is fairly neat too. Konning Hans is a lot of fun. Ellindur Bóndi Á Jadri is okay, nothing terribly special. Nine Worlds Of Lore is a pretty cool song, I like the chorus and the solo is cool. The Lay Of Thrym‘s introkind of feels like a callback to their third album, which is neat. The song itself is pretty great.

I is a fantastic cover, just mesemerizing. Stargazer is a pretty good version of the classic song. Overall this album is catchy and fun, but not the best Týr.

Final Rating: 9/10
