Yes. I have to buy em first. I just like the idea of them being so light and easy to wear. Supposably there is a little grain at higher volume, still I'm going to buy them with-out hearing them. Price is right.

When you do hear the guitar it reminds you of hearing your friend when you were both 16 years old, jump out of the song mix with massive metal emotion that only comes from the young.

Normally I like massive violins like Dimmu, but this single violin sound is as you know perfect. Album of the year kind of stuff. Really surprising as I didn't like the second song release when I heard it. Hearing the second song release in place in the full album is totally correct. It IS better than the last. Just wow!

I'd never heard A Forest of Stars before seeing them mentioned here.  I loved "Drawing Down the Rain" and now I'm streaming A Shadowplay for Yesterday on YouTube.  While I'm not exactly bowled over by it, there is some obvious brilliance underfoot here (as I typed that sentence an accordion solo began playing, accompanied by the sounds of squealing hogs).  I can't wait to stream Beware the Sword You Cannot See in whole, and I fully anticipate buying the album based on that single.

Yes, you will like the whole thing. Still they are not for every metalhead, I would guess.


They are perfect for the board and tired listener who has heard it all. The listener who is tired of hearing new Black Metal bands do what other bands already did.


So they bring a warehouse full of instuments into the mix, still it is all done with either good taste or British taste.


They don't use a new imstument to just use something new but the use adds to the end goal,IMO.


It takes some style from Tull and mixes it with a post Black Metal genre that just works.


You end up with a sonic journey that even "A Day In The Life" by the Beatles can't compete with.

The promo dropped to me a few days ago. I'm still digesting it. It is a complicated beast.

My vinyl copy should hit the mail box any day now. We can compare!
