Let's get this out of the way, I'm a nerd for melodic/folk metal and damn proud of it.
This is what WinterSun should have made on their Seasons album last year. Nahtram approach Equilibrium territory with more riffs and hooks than a boat full of grandfathers on holiday. Being a strictly instrumental album may be a detraction for some, though I prefer it.
Epic in scale and worthy of your time, these purveyors of cheese pair well with beer and D&D.
Favorite track: Stormroad.
