Whats all this talk of Core twaddle!... i don't hear much of that,if ya ask me the music is essentially Melodic Death (Dark Tranquillity meets Amon Amarth maybe) with black metal style vocals and the odd folk-y interlude here and there... what ever it is i quite like 'The Evening Red' anyway,much respect Mr Erik Lagerlöf.
The Evening Red is too metalcore-ish, I prefer his previous work. --> So I'll never listen to this album! But, I have to say that the self-titled demo is a good example of Melodic BM without any "corish" touch!
