      Haggard's second album (2000).

      Germany's Haggard are certainly one of the more immediately identifiable and distinctive metal bands, playing a bizarre fusion of black metal, classical and amateur dramatics to tell their conceptual tales, this one apparently concerning Nostradamus, though you wouldn't know that if you're incapable of deciphering the archaic languages used for the lyrics.

      There are many flaws with this album, the inevitable result of being so experimental, but there's so much to love about it that I can't begrudge the band its poorer choices. The worst is the frequency of the acted interludes, occasionally taking up far longer than necessary in the centre of songs, but elsewhere the use of authentic classical instruments mixed with minor metal elements in the form of down-tuned electric guitars and heavy metal rasping vocals keep this from being merely a metal album with symphonic elements, but more of a perfect fusion in-between, performed by far more musicians than the average rock band.
