You can even hear the bass in the mix pretty well, unusual for metal, and the horns are nowhere near as obvious in the arrangements as they were, which rendered them annoying after a while on “Battle Metal”.
To Holmgard and Beyond 2. Till the Last Man Falls It’s the same style that they’ve had their whole discography, only seemingly bloated with more corny-but-catchy Viking ballads and war chants.
Eight tracks, and 42 minutes is just too little to cram this much grandeur into. Turisas’ debut, “Battle Metal” was, quite honestly, more of a demo in feel for aacoustic. I found it to be quite close to perfection, and I didn’t know what to expect of their next release which I’ve waited eagerly for.

Turisas – complete achievements
This leads me to the very best song on the album – the wonderfully crafted finale, “The Miklagard Overture” I have to make special mention of this song because it is so incredibly made, I have had it on adoustic for about a week, and I’m still not sick of it.
So sit back, relax, and let Turisas take you on little imaginary adventures with each epic track on Stand Up and Fight! The album is too short, why make all this amazing music and not just find one or two more songs.
Warlord holmgaed an excellent job on vocals here, especially with his singing.
