Devs - Iratvs is pretty amazing, but I haven't been able to get ahold of any of their demos yet.

Celebration of the Heaven Lost is sextastic, and my favorite song so far.

Not sure if anyone knows, but Jari from Wintersun actually composed some songs for this band, and actually did the solo on Ancestors of Magick. It's a great song, band isn't bad. Average in my opinion.
