Elvenking - Two Tragedy Poets... And A Caravan Of Weird Figures (2008)
Genre: Power / Folk Metal
Label: AFM Records
Website: Facebook / Myspace
I got into this band with this album, because i realized that i don't like their new releases at all, and their older ones are listenable, but thats all. They turned into something softer and more emo that what they used to play like 10 years ago, it was once about folklore and now is about romantic dead love to-throw-up lyrics.
Anyway, the songs here remind me of Lord of the Rings and im a die hard fan, i think if i ever had a party with hobbits in the Shire, them dancing with booze on the tables of a random inn, this would be the background music. Even the artwork (front/back/CD covers are included) reminds of something poetic and medieval.
I would listen to Heathenreel, this and Wyrd if i were you, i cannot really judge the band as a whole, but thats the albums i can help to listen.
