Prophecy Of The Seer – Immediate metallic intro. Lots of freestyle riffage. Imaginative setting. Heavy vocals, with softer backing choruses. Drums rolling smoothly. It’s quite a grungy track, with a loose flow to the structure. A middle eastern flavour to the bridge. Good physical depiction of the group harmony. Chanting style employed, towards the end. It’s actually more grunge than Viking and as such, quite a departure from previous form. Cohesive, smooth delivery, all round. Unexpectedly gentle, tonally and structurally. A well aligned and energised performance, executed with a lighter touch, through which, contemplative themes are conveyed. Less impactful than it could be, but to some extent, the flawless delivery compensates for that. A fairly enigmatic track, adeptly handled.
