This album. My god, this album. In my humble opinion, As the Fires Burn is the 2013 album of the year. This is truly a single track, a megalithic emotional journey depicting in magnificent instrumental blackened folk metal the scorching and harrowing destruction of tranquility and then its eventual emotional and glorious rebirth. Honestly, I can't saw enough about this album ... this sojourn of musicianship. I am honored to call the man behind Evergreen Refuge my true friend.
Favorite track: II.
