As for the poll, I was torn between a lot of them... I love the whole album, but really love Cursed be Iron, Fields of Gold and Court of Jarisleif... But as I said, the album is epic, but I chose Fields of Gold!

I voted MO, but i really like the authenticity of Cursed be Iron - the fact that the lyrics are taken straight from the Kalevala is pretty cool.

Voted Miklagard as well, but this is like asking someone to choose his favorite child. 'Portage' is a very, very close second.

I like literally all the songs, but since I had to pick just one - it was rather random, I voted Miklagard Overture

I think the entire album is titties, but, if I had to pick one, I'm going to have to go with A Portage to the Unknown.

The last two or so minutes of "Five Hundred & One" are incredibly fucking epic and for that reason its my favourite part of the album, however "Holmgard & Beyond" is probably the song I'd play for someone who's never listened to the band before.

Is not easy to choose a song in an album like The Varangian way, but for me is In the Court of Jarisleif, specially the performance added after end the song, really good!

Miklagard Overture. Why?
Do I need an explanation? Really?

The entire album is a piece of art. I choose Holmgard and Beyond because that song really sticks in my mind, and because it's my g/f's favorite song from Turisas.

I voted for Jarisleif. This track just keeps on playing in my head right now, even though, practically, To Holmgard and Beyond and Miklagard Overture are just mindblowingly good.

Dnieper Rapids. The riff is just beyond awesome.

But it was a close call, Five Hundred and One and Fields of Gold are fairly epic also. I love the album as a whole experience.

My vote went to In The Court of Jarisleif. It must be crazy live!!!
I couldn't decide between that, Five Hundred and One and To Holmgard and Beyond.

The whole album is a jewel. But if I'd have to pick one, Miklagard. VERY tough decision though. Specially between Miklagard and Holmgard. And Five Hundred and One. And Portage, and Fields, and Jarisleif, and everything!
