Well, I can’t speak for anyone else, but current events have driven me somewhere I haven’t been in years.

Well produced and written with talent, Valfreya has released a really interesting album that, in my opinion, might please death metal fans, more than some bands in the folk/pagan metal style, where some times volktroll is more present and aggressiveness less put up front.
