Battlesoul - Lay Down Thy Burdens

  | CD

Battlesoul-Lay Down Thy Burdens This is one of the most impressive folk metal albums I've ever heard and really does manage to set a precedent for other North American folk metal bands, who so far have all tried and failed (*coughBlackguardcough*). I really would have liked a few more folk elements though, as there are moments in the album where I really feel they would have been appropriate. To slightly contradict what I just said, there were a few orchestra bits that, to be honest, were poor and reeked of pseudo-symphony pretension, but I understand it's a tricky feature to pull off and as such doesn't really impact the album. All in all I love how Battlesoul manages to mix power and melodic death in an accessible way, without watering it down and compromising the more extreme elements (Children of Bodom, anyone?). If you're looking for a ballsy, epic, adrenaline-inducing album with earthy, soulful folk melodies then this is the album for you.
