By: Eline
Score: 8/10
Release: 13-12-2013 re-release 2017
Label: Einheit Produktionen

(Editor): Einheit Produktionen is re-releasing the first two albums of Nine Treasures. Eline wrote a review on the second album way back in 2013 already, and we think it’s still quite accurate:
Before I started working for folk-metal.nl, of course I was a huge fan of folk metal, but I never imagined myself listening to Mongolian folk metal.

20 Years ago, the first Flogging Molly album was released, a live album. A few years later their first studio album was a fact, and although the band isn’t very productive, album-wise, the albums they released were all beauties. Now it’s time for their 6th studio-album. It’s called ‘Life is Good’ and I can imagine it is for Flogging Molly.
Although the lyrics are often on the downside of things, politics, society, relationships, and there’s plenty of that around the world, even in the USA, Read More
