In Extremo - _7_
(Motor Music, 2003)
by: Brian Meloon (6 out of 10)
This is the seventh studio album from Germany's In Extremo, and those familiar with them will find no real surprises here. Their brand of medieval/celtic folk mixed with industrialized metal and infused with '80s pop influences has changed little since at least their third album, _Weckt Die Toten_ [CoC #43]. Their sound has retained its signature elements, featuring bagpipes and other traditional instruments and having a generally upbeat and happy tone. Of course, with so many albums under their belts, they've had a lot of time to polish their sound, so the playing and production are very professional. Fans of the band's earlier work, or other similar bands like Skyclad, should get some enjoyment out of this. If you haven't liked their previous recordings, then this will not change your mind.
