    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?

    I simply love Dniper! It has so many different parts and the whole composion is a masterpiece! Choirs really make this song shine.

    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!

    "Fields of gold" ...for it was the song that made me a turisas fan.
    "Fivehundred and one" is a close second and "Cursed be iron" third

    Five Hundred and One does it for me.

    Surprised Fields of Gold doesn't have more votes!
