Nokturnal Mortum-The Taste of Victory EP (2004)

Absolutely incredible EP from Ukrain's symphonic/folk black metal legends, Nokturnal Mortum. This album really exemplifies the change in sound they have made as of late, with a much heavier focus on incorporating the instruments and folk music of their native Ukraine, creating a much more slavic folk-metal feel. The other obvious (but awesome) difference is a focus on longer, more epic-feeling songs, in the vein of viking-era Bathory and later Graveland. This is a highly recommended piece of music!
