Description

The new album from Ukrainian folk metal group Midgard is entitled Tales Of Kreia and is the band’s third full-length release. Unlike the previous two albums, Tales Of Kreia is specifically written within a fantasy setting and every song is endowed with different moods while raising a variety of philosophical issues about life and death.

The album shows the diverse nature of Midgard, ranging from pure metal and to complex, multi-part compositions with the use of a large number of ethnic instruments. At its core, the entire album constitutes a single whole, as each composition illuminates one or another part of the universe which the album discusses.

This album will appeal to both fans of good groove and lovers of fast and melodic guitar riffs. In addition to this, there are not only growling vocals, but also quite a lot of clean vocals which add exceptional drama and complements, very harmoniously, the atmosphere of the fantasy world. However, this is not a sign of commercial trends, on the contrary, such elements on Tales Of Kreia are used to make a total connection of all the elements, in which Midgard actually unite the real metalheads. In any case, no description will truly give the listener an idea of what exactly the band put into their songs. Time to hear it for yourself!

    Midgard haben mich mit ihrem dritten Album mehr als überzeugen können. Die Ukrainer konnten mich sowohl im Melo-Death lastigen ersten Teil, als auch im Folk lastigeren zweiten Teil überzeugen. Die Truppe schafft eine gute Mischung aus beidem und agiert insgesamt sehr vielfältig. Die 9,5 / 10 sind wohl verdient …read more

    From start to finish, this record is truly an epic journey without a bad track on it. The Hunt and Black Widow fast up the pace one last time, before the beautifully melodic Ice Spirit brings this incredibly diverse voyage to its end …read more

    Tales of Kreia delivers a red-hot piece of first-rate metal for the connoisseur. Rough, scratchy, steely-edged, varied, and – at times – folksy to a point without being too cheesy. A truly complex and utterly enjoyable piece that will demand your full attention …read more

    Overall – In a word, fabulous. ‘TOK’ is just a sheer delight, from start to end. The Celtic legend virtually screams from it and every track’s a treasure trove of melody, power and intrigue. So uplifting and passionately performed, you’ll wish you could bottle the fun and energy within it. An outstandingly enjoyable album, delivering on all fronts …read more

    It’s got a real groove, and there’s something in there for every musical taste, too (especially Thrash). So, even if you’re not usually into Folk Metal, I’d still give it a try …read more
