The Pagan Manifesto is not for everyone, admittedly, as the cheese factor is quite high. It's a fun-oriented album that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's meant to be sung out loud alongside compatriots or howled alone at the moon or jammed to in the middle of a festival crowd. But if you have ever enjoyed anything by Elvenking, do yourself a favor and get this album.
From adventurous epics like "King of the Elves" and "Witches Gather" (the former giving the classic "Seasonspeech" a run for its money) to the straightforward unbridled energy of "Elvenlegions" and "Pagan Revolution" to the somber emotion of ballads "Towards the Shores" and "Twilight of Magic", this is one of the most consistent and memorable folk/power metal fusion albums I've ever heard. Yes, ever.
