elvenking the scythe

The use of synths on this album is ridiculous. They didn’t wanted to repeat themselves, and all that shit. So, the music stinks. Similarly, the acoustic interlude “Totentanz” would actually be a nice diversion if the high school poetry wasn’t extended to last through the entire song. Tearing me apart The divided heart Playing it’s game for all these wasted years I have been walking alone All these years I have been carried away – carried away The tears that I don’t cry won’t fill my eyes but pain inside I feel is real Pain is real until the day I’ll die The divided heart Tearing me apart The divided heart Playing it’s game for all these wasted years I have been walking alone All these years I have been carried away – carried away 8. Now, Elvenking deliver their own dark side.

Perfect for describing the feeling that “Scythe” will bestow upon you. Well, thee or not, ‘The scythe’ is here, and it sadly has to be reported that it is a stinker. The elfenking and guitar tones are also better than on past albums. Brazil To be honest, their folk elements were not their best feature.

It’s just me being happy that they didn’t change their logo, along with their music. Now that I mentioned it, Death and the Suffering is a total-killer.

Elvenking – The Scythe review – Metal Storm

Yes, it is about as bad as people will tell you. Just lose to Wyrd. Damna] The puritan filth, where ivy grows The poisoned tear, the thorn, the rose The sin, the pleasure, the sexual urge Is what I choose for my last dirge This is the day I’ll die The scent of lust, my last goodbye Devotion and distress – love and tempting flesh Thousands battles I have fought Like a falling Ceasar now I rot The night of the long knives – The weakness of our kind A human messiah carrying the cross Still to this day they follow an icon – I can’t believe it Do you believe in the afterlife?


This is one in a growing group of albums out of the power metal field that signifies a dying spirit in the style, and unfortunately a lot of journalists on various metal websites are walking on eggshells on this issue and looking for excuses to pass this off a small step down but an otherwise good album, rather than the woefully confused, self-mocking caricature of modern metal that it is.

Written by schwanderen on And with them all her sins Whip my soul and caress my flesh till the whines melody still lasts A burning wish, a lechery There’s a demon in me The dirty shameful and obscene – so shameful Was that me?

But it is only with the 2nd and 3rd songs that things really start to nosedive. Well, I would, if it would be so. Especially Heathenreel,there ain’t a single track on it that I don’t like This band literally would have done better if they’d just written songs about the uses of a scythe in agriculture, and maybe improved upon it a little by making the farmers depicted in their tasks pagans.

They didn’t wanted to repeat themselves, and all that shit.

The Scythe

Metalcore and folk metal don’t make the most natural combination and Elvenking is not able to make a scythf go at it. Yes, the band did probably smoke large quantities of paint thinner before writing this.

If you ask me, it has no limits. Introspection Late Night Partying.

To desecrate my last hidden sense of devotion Loose like never before the break point of my life is bonded by chance and reasons frail like crystal glass near to fall on a million spikes I’ve never – just never – he never loved as much as he loves her now My only sweet hearthold – His only dlvenking of bliss The hangman – merciful abyss – eradicating black souls from the guildty My wonder – to plunder the sad emotions of a bleeding soul – love – dead heart Cursed to see her beloved dying by his own hand – by mistake No mistake for the Lady in black!


According to the credits I’ve seen, it’s actually a female called Laura de Luca, but her voice is so terrible that i prefer don’t going on details. It is like a compilation of what is there to be found on The Scythe, and the female and guest vocals add a lot. This album’s other performances are pretty forgettable, though there are a number of sharp, energetic guitar leads that represent a good cross between folk metal and power metal, but, as you’ve probably guessed, there aren’t nearly enough of elvenkimg leads to make The Scythe worthwhile.

People usually like to criticize bands for reusing always the same formula. The Scythe features a unique style, it is not completely death metal, nor is it drowning in folk instruments. So, the music stinks. Also, one can expect stupid narrative interludes that dreadfully connect each track by contributing confusing rhymes while simultaneously omitting any meaningful purpose for the speaking bridges.

The seemingly never-ending 8-minute “Romance and wrath” is nothing short of torture, with Damnagoras turning in a shameful, career-worst display as he strangles a duet with a female vocalist. As someone who’s enjoyed most of Elvenking’s output, including Era and Two Tragedy PoetsI feel confident in my assessment that The Scythe is the band’s worst experiment.
