Battle Helm Rating

This is a band that I used to follow in the late 90s, early 00s. But I kinda lost touch with them. But I liked their black metal back them and I like it now when they return with a new album to follow up their 2011 release. In essence this is Finnish black metal like it used to sound like in the 90s. They borrowed heavily from the Norwegian school but then added their Finnish touches making it their own. This is symphonic and grand but with a quite moderate tempo. Kinda like you imagine the Finns to be like. What is cool is that this sounds just like I remembered them to sound like. A real blast from the past but also a huge step into the future. Great to have you back. Anders Ekdahl
