Label: Stygian Crypt Productions
Sometimes it’s hard to discuss a CD. Sometimes you just don’t know what to say about it. If you get two of those albums at the same time, of the same band and both originating from 2010, it becomes even harder to say something decent about it.
The main problem is that there isn’t much to say about this CD. Forgotten lore, which was released in 2011, is the acoustic counterpart of the earlier released Battlecry. When you think in the direction of the acoustic CD of Eluveitie, though a lot less exciting and impressive, you’re thinking in the right way.
While this release is better than ‘Battlecry’, it still isn’t optimal. While it all sounds a bit better in a musical way, the songs are never really interesting or catchy. It just goes on and on, and it misses a lot of power to make this record a success.
