HIMINBJORG triumphantly attacks from the treetops (Hey, Pat: you've been watching ''Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon''??? --E.M.) with their 3rd Red Stream release aptly titled (what else?) ''THIRD''! The band substituted their drummer with someone more entrusted to the conceptual origin of the band. With the exchange came a slight musical variation: the delirious speed of the previous album ''In the Raven's Shadow'' has slowed down to a commanding, cosmic storm of molten heaviness from genuinely Pagan hearts! The songs of HIMINBJORG are now more stringent, the playing on the album is more concentrated & focused, the production is superior to any of the band's previous endeavors, bringing the all-around outcome of the entire MCD to a greater climactic state of gratification!
