Finsterforst - Rastlos (2012)
This is an excellent atmospheric black metal/folk release that calls to mind the music of Moonsorrow. It's sweeping, epic stuff that makes you feel like you're right in the Lord of the Rings universe (as cheesy as that might sound). Like Moonsorrow, Finsterforst have a knack balancing harshness with epic melodies and storytelling so as to make for a provocative and beautifully grandiose musical statement. If you want music that really fires up the imagination then I highly recommend this to you.
