Zgard's second album "Reclusion" is different compared to its predecessor "The Spirit of Carpathian Sunset" - majority of folk elements are left over, atmosphere got much darker, colder and depressive. Special music for special moods.

Yaromisl seems to know exactly what makes a human tick, and he pushes all the right buttons in the human condition in terms of melody penetrating the body and tickling the soul. Spirit becomes substance, and vice versa. [...] The best melodic pagan folk black metal album I have heard in quite some time. Highly recommended.
