New Ensiferum Leaked

Although without Jari the Musicianship is significantly less interesting and grabbing, I find the orchestration much much better than before. Rather than just simply complementing the song, it has become its own entity capable of being listened to alone. And unlike Jari, Ensiferum still provides us pagan/folk/whatever the fuck you want to call it fans with something new and refreshing in the genre to listen to frequently. The barroom piano, BANJO SOLO!!!!, western whistling, war horns, deep narrative, and of course the chants have all departed from the traditional Ensiferum style and are utilized amazingly well. The length and diversity in mood, structure and tempo of the songs makes this album very very well rounded. Do yourself a favor. Download
