V: Hävitetty (CD, Album, RP). The progression this album has may make the destination quite clear with the listener even at the very beginning. While the songs are of heroic length, there's never a sense of any overly repetitive riffs. There are several moments where the melodies build upon each other to a peak only to level out preemptively before the next oncoming crescendo
V: Hävitetty (also known as Viides Luku: Hävitetty ) is the fifth studio album by Finnish Black Metal band Moonsorrow. It was released on January 10, 2007. This album is different from the rest of the band’s output both structurally, and when it came to mixing. It’s comprised of two songs - the longest Moonsorrow’s ever put out - and the instruments are produced way above the vocals, to the point the cryptic, mood-detailing have a literal subtlety to the music alongside the figurative one of the lyrics. V: Hävitetty Q&A. More Moonsorrow albums.
Overall, Moonsorrow’s V: Hävitetty is an ok album. Its main drawback is the first song, which really isn’t worth listening to a whole lot, save for a few parts. With each album Moonsorrow continues to improve in all the aforementioned areas, with some extremely bold shifts especially in the area of concept. Their songs have been growing longer while still remaining attention-grabbing. This idea came to a head for their most recent release, "Viides Luku - Hävitetty", which translates "Chapter Five - Ravaged".

Those who know Moonsorrow have already probably noticed that over the course of their albums, their songs have been getting longer, more epic, less "catchy" and with much more time given to stretched-out beginnings and endings. Well, with only 2 tracks for the whole album, you might guess that this record is a definite continuation of that trend! Each of these 2 tracks is almost half an hour long.
