VESPERIA - An Olden Tale (2014-digipak)

"Wacken Metal Battle Canada 2015 Winners"

Canadian band VESPERIA have accomplished something special with "An Olden Tale" on their 2014 second full-length album. They transition from epic Viking Metal to hopping Folk Metal mixed with speedy Melodic Death Metal, often effortlessly. At times they even overlap styles to great effect and the energy created is infectious. Vesperia describe their style as 'epic Canadian symphonic celtic black/death metal', and while they claim "An Olden Tale" is not a concept album they do admit 'there was a general theme of kinsmanship, triumph in battle, and man's relation to nature.' Excellent, all around! - Rate Your Music
